If you search Google for the top 5 places to ride a hot air balloon, I am sure Göreme, Cappadocia, is at the top of the list.
I had only been in a balloon once before I got a ride in the Göreme Valley; it was not an activity that I would put on my list of things to do before I die. It could not make the adrenalin rush out of my mind at all, not like skydiving, swimming with dolphins, or the chance to be on a New Zealand TV game show.
Ballooning was a boring activity for me until I had a hot air balloon flight in Göreme. Göreme is an amazing place with striking landscapes, and it’s even more amazing when you have different perspectives from above and below ground.
And can you believe it, it was half the price of my first balloon trip!
