    “What a Amazing TRIP: Hot Air Ballooning”
    Reviewed June 11, 2011
    A book said that one thing should be done in one's life is "Ballooning". So since I am in Australia now, I've decided to do it. Actually I was very worried because of the weather which was a little bad the day before. However, we were so lucky and it was a sunny day.
    It was around 6:00am when we got there and the staffs were ready to take off. Everyone was so excited and screaming when the balloon lift us into the sky. The VIEW was so wonderfull, we could see cattle, sheep, river under our foot and expecially for the sunrise, it was so beautiful. It's a little pity that ballooning just takes 30 mintues. But I'd never forget this trip in my life!!!!
    By the way, we did this activity on the Gold Cosat, if anyone is interested in it. Have a try!! (via Trip Advisor)
