Whoever dreamed of filling a giant balloon with hot air & floating off into the sky is a genius! There's something of fairytale flying through the morning sky in a woven basket.
Our adventure started at 4 am in Yarra Valley, waking before the sun at Yering Gorge Cottages. We piled into a Land Cruiser to drive north to the takeoff point. The stars were still out & the only light in the sky was the flame burning air into the balloon. In a rush of excitement, we jumped (literally) into the floating basket to watch the sunrise over the Yarra Valley & Toolangi forest.
