Ballooning Majestically over the Valleys of Cappadocia

With a dozen people in our basket and the capable captain Mustafa at the helm, we enjoy a dreamy glide over Turkey. Halfway through, our captain tosses Super Ted from the balloon. Mustafa learned to fly a balloon in 2002 in Albuquerque. A single Muslim man learning to fly in the USA just after 9/11, he attracted all sorts of attention from our government. I felt perfectly safe in the balloon of Mustafa.

  1. Wow – look at all those balloons! What a sight. Rick – what`s the story for tossing Super Ted over the side? :) Thanks for sharing –

  2. Ok, one more thing to put on the Bucket List…must say though, that`s an awful lot of hot-air traffic…

  3. Tell me more about Super Ted. Do kids scramble to catch him? Is he helping with a charity? Or, heaven forbid, does he fall into a tiny heap and add to clutter?
