Wow..today is an amazing birthday (so far) as it is only just beginning. I woke up at the lovely Mandarin Oriental in Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia. I expected the executive club but the treat was the upgrade to a lovely suite. (Don't forget that if you can't see all the pics then just click. )
My birthday began at the crack of early 5:30 AM to be exact. Time to get up and head off to my birthday adventure. Those who know me...know I am TERRIFIED of heights, and since my dad died I have tried to live my life in love and not fear, and embrace all that scares me. So, I decidedfor this MAJOR bday...to tackle heights and away I went:
The company is called My Balloon Adventure and is family owned and operated and have been around for ages. They were super professional and so kind. As you can see in the first pics I was terrified but by the end I was having the time of my life. My pilot was named Agatha (no that isn't it) but I can't remember as I was only introduced once in the beginning and to be honest I was scared out of my wits but she is an amazing pilot and so kind. We talked about travel, live and family. It was not an ordinary tour as I felt I was with a good friend, who also made sure all my needs were met.
After soaring great heights we had the easiest landing I could have imagined, followed with a champagne/sparkling cider toast:
and to top it all off...I got a certificate of flying and by golly gee I earned it:-)
After the flight we had a nice breakfast then back to the hotel where the staff and mywas waiting with even more goodies. It was an absolute dream.
