After booking the Hot Air balloon safari over a year and a half ago, we were finally able to enjoy the experience. It was absolutely amazing. Originally we had booked the balloon safari for March 24th but it was canceled due to poor weather conditions. We were fortunate enough to have another opportunity to visit the Serengeti on this trip, and we were able to re-book the balloon safari for our second visit. It was a little bit on the expensive side but since we were able to pay for it while we were still working (back in 2007) it made it easier to justify the cost. The champagne breakfast alone was worth it. We didn't see a large amount of wildlife, but the views were stunning and it was nice not eating dust for an hour or so.
Welcome to our travelblog page. We initally called ourselves "AfricaBound" because we spent a year traveling around Africa from August 2007 to August 2008. At that time, little did we even think that we could go on another extended trip. Somehow through much perseverance and determination we were able to save up for yet another extended trip, this time as sort of a honeymoon. Our current itinerary has us traveling from July 2010 until December 2011 through Central Asia, China, New Zealand, Australia and then back up to SE Asia, Nepal, India and then finally Japan.
