Today’s been a busy one with too many things to blog about now as it’s late in the evening and I’ve got a lot to do tomorrow, so I’ll restrict myself to the picture of the day.

This is what Melbourne, Australia looks like from a hot air balloon.

I took this picture from the basket of the balloon that Lynn and I were travelling in on the 1st February 2007. We were in Oz visiting our friend Alison who was still living there at the time – although she already had plans to move to Bali. It was Alison who organised the balloon trip which was fantastic. Drifting over a city in a balloon is amazing because you get to hear the sounds of the city below you as your transport is totally silent and open to the air. It gives you far more of a connection with the land below rather than being cocooned in a plane or helicopter.
