What do you get when you have a burner, heated air, a basket and a balloon? A hot air balloon ride. This is a photo of the hot air balloon being prepared just before it would take off in the desert of Jordan. It was my second time in a hot air balloon, but definitely the more spectacular one. Being high up in the air above Wadi Rum gives you stunning views over the Jordan scenery. If you want to experience more of my hot air balloon ride, then check out my post from my special Wadi Rum trip.
