Here’s a quick ride over the Theban Mountains in Egypt.
If you’re hooked, there a ton more hot air balloon 360° videos on YouTube…
There’s even one that shows a Hot Air Balloon Bar 🙂
Finally, for those who are too young to know or too old to remember, here’s a fifty year old pre-MTV video flashback from the The 5th Dimension (YouTube, Wikipedia) singing the song that inspired the title of this post.
