We woke super early and got picked up at our hotel, Nefertiti. The van drove us to a small boat that took us across the River Nile to the west bank where our balloons were already inflating.

We climbed inside our balloon and began rising up above a dozen other glowing balloons into the twilight sky.

Once the sunlight began to wash the valley in reds and pinks, we could see the west bank of the River Nile coming to life.

The Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens, and Hatshepsut’s temple all glowed down below.

the best thing to do in Luxor!

We soared for about an hour, slaves to the wind, until we finally touched down gracefully into a farmers field, greeted by a team of men prepared to collapse the balloon.

Thank you Taher Shawqy from Aladdin tours at Nefertiti Hotel for arranging this unforgettable experience in Luxor, Egypt.

This sweet boy was waiting for us as we touched down in the balloon.
