Imagine gliding silently across endless dunes, tiny camels far below you and the sun rising from behind the distant mountains over the border in Oman. Photos and commentary from my first ever balloon trip.
I love the desert, the serenity and the dunes moves me like no other landscape so I was thrilled that my first ever balloon trip was over a beautiful piece of desert, the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Read all about my Dubai Balloon Adventure here and enjoy the photos below.
Although it was mostly sand below us, there were some settlements and some farms, the bright green contrasting dramatically with the red-tinges dunes
My balloon flight was courtesy of Balloon Adventures Emirates. Many thanks to them for an unforgettable experience.
