I can’t even describe how breathtaking this morning was, and I’m sure the pictures can barely do it justice!

A 430 AM start to the day floating over the “fairy chimneys” of Cappadocia. Honestly, I was hesitant at first as I thought the whole thing was just a big tourist trap. However, after doing it, I can’t imagine enjoying this sight any other way. There is definitely a reason that the sky fills with balloons every morning. For all of us, it was our first ever hot air balloon ride and I’m sure it will remain our most memorable one.

The event wouldn’t be quite complete without celebratory “Champagne Showers” at the end…
