Fall is coming to say hello to us and I can’t contain my excitement for planning a travel in such an amazing season. The fall is a perfect season to fly a hot air balloon.

Well, hot air balloon festivals are coming in many places, so there’re eight amazing places highly recommended to you. Can’t wait to pack my suitcase!
