Up, up & away…

Yesterday morning I went up in a hot air balloon for the first time with my Mum, Sister, her boyfriend & my girlfriend, Niki for Mother’s Day & my sisters birthday. It is so peace full up there & was an amazing experience & something that I will not forget anytime soon. The view was amazing & it’s such a different feeling to flying in a plane. It feels so natural. We even saw some kangaroos in the field when we were landing. Oh, & the big news is I also popped the question to my girl & she said yes. Stoked.
