Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.
When I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team. Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado. Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well. Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world). Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me.
Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too). They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing. For the travel blog video they got to go inside the baloon during inflation and Allie got to get some fun pictures. Here is one of them. Her pilot is in the background. On a side note, her pilot was Scott Appleman who I knew in High School - how fun is that!
