This is probably the strongest shot from my weekend treat to a hot-air balloon ride in the Yarra Glen region just outside of Melbourne. While I can’t vouch for the operators in a positive fashion, given the right weather (like we were lucky to have), some of the views are quite astounding. I am looking forward to comparing this rural experience to a future urban one.
