I can not say enough about this opportunity except GET YOUR TICKET NOW.
Apparently I'm not the only one who has wanted to go to the Balloon Fiesta because we've had a lots of interest and lots of questions! Hopefully I have answered them below and if not just ask me. As you know this is the largest balloon festival in the world which is why hotel rooms and balloon rides are extremely difficult to come by. Because of this, I can only take reservations until the end of this month - July 31, 2017.
Check out the fabulous itinerary (if I must say so myself) that includes outings for art-lovers, foodies, adventurous souls and history buffs.
Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta - October 12-16
Join us in exploring the Land of Enchantment during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the most magical time of the year. You'll be in awe as hundreds of hot air balloons ascend into the beautiful New Mexico sky. Few spectacles on earth rival the Mass Ascension, as hundreds of hot air balloons lift off from Balloon Fiesta Park to drift in the crisp early-morning high-desert air. This memorable tour also features an evening balloon glow with fireworks, a visit to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, Old Town Albuquerque, a day trip to historic Santa Fe and fabulous food tours exploring New Mexico's famous cuisine.
I do drink wine..I like wine...I enjoy the nuances of the liquid incased in glass after grown in a vineyard.
Yes, the first wine is a rose because Rose' has become the Pinot Noir of yesteryear. Everyone is talking Rose' and I do mean EVERYONE.
I tried to hold onto this 2015 Luna Rose for a day on a sandy beach with a good book.
That was not going to happen as you can guess. The bottle alone calls you everytime you see it.
I enjoyed this Rose' wine over ice which made it great since I didn't have time to chill it. This wine would be very very dangerous as a sangria base because there isn't an abrasive alcohol that I find in some Rose' of late as so many are being rushed to market to capitalize on the popularity.
