I missed my anniversary earlier this year because I was abroad for a business trip and I’ve been doing everything I can to make it up to my wife ever since. She says I don’t need to go out of my way to treat her, but considering I missed our special day, I feel I need to do everything to treat her the way she deserves to be treated. When booking her birthday present, I made sure I chose the most romantic activity possible- I wanted nothing less than the best for her.
We’ve always loved watching the sunset together, so I wanted to go somewhere with an amazing view. When looking online, the perfect idea popped into my head straight away: hot air ballooning. I went straight onto the Scenes Above website to find the closest site to us; thankfully, we were in a picturesque part of the country, so there were lots of places we could take to the skies. I checked the weather for the day and booked for us to go watch the sunset on a warm summer’s night. I’ve always wanted to go hot air ballooning and there is nobody else in the world I’d rather share that experience with.
When her birthday arrived, my wife was over the moon to find out I’d booked for us to go up in the air on a ballooning adventure. It was a few more weeks until we made our trip up to the skies to watch the sunset, but it felt like years- we were both so eager to get up there and see the beautiful sights for miles around us. When the day finally came, we felt like kids on Christmas morning. We had to drive across lots of beautiful countryside views on the way to the site, but we knew it would look far more stunning from way up high in the air.
When we finally arrived the staff went out of their way to make the most romantic experience possible for the both of us. They had champagne prepared for a toast when we reached the peak ascension height, whilst we felt like we were being personally chaperoned when we were in the balloon. The staff were friendly, but stayed far enough back to never get in the way of our special moment. The views were beautiful and the sunset was absolutely stunning- I would definitely recommend it to everybody.
My wife said this was the perfect birthday gift, so we’ll definitely be coming back to create more perfect memories in the future.
