Once you know exactly what it feels like floating weightless in the air, you would not even mind ignoring your fear of heights (if you have it!) and would just get into a big balloon to take a ride.
I tell you what I felt like. The moment the balloon leaves the ground, you feel it is as almost a non-moment. The rising is so kicking, so gentle, and so very interesting. I could see I was at cactus height and then above the cactus. Slowly I was aloft. Soon, I could sense myself getting raised steadily, so silently, and the basket is so still that I have no fear at all. Yes am saying this: Throw away your fears and get into the magical experience of the very hot and ecstasy filled air ballooning ride!
