Riding High Over the Nile Valley

Balloon

One of the best parts of the entire trip is something I almost missed out on….waking up at 4:00 am to ride in a hot air balloon over Luxor and the Nile Valley.  Was the wake up call painful?  You bet.  But was it worth it?  Abso-freaking-lutely!  If I could only repeat one thing about my time in Egypt, it would be the 45 minutes spent peacefully gliding along the lush Nile River in this hot air balloon.

p.s. I wrote this post and had it lined up to go out before the terrible tragedy in Luxor yesterday.  My heart goes out to the families of those who lost their lives.
