In this episode Team Toto soar above the Serengeti in a hot air balloon and drink champagne like the rock stars they wish they were! An unforgettable experience that we shared with many of our travel companions.
Also, I deliver on a promise I made to amp up the excitement of a balloon coming in to land… 😉
Thanks again to Pete and Deb for letting us use some of their footage!
One of my favourite songs suits this evening perfectly. We’re saying goodbye to England tonight. We’ve a bottle of champagne to celebrate.
The real deal! Only £12.50 at Tesco. The Ikea tumblers add a touch of class.
Luke spilled it over the bed as the bottle had been bounced around in my backpack for an hour and I caught him on film. You’re welcome.
Be sure to catch this moment of hilarity about 6 months from now when we finally get up to finishing that episode. I think it’s only matched by the video where I managed to catch the moment Luke caught a drop of sizzling oil in his eye when we were eating street food in Vietnam. Pure gold, I’m sure you’ll agree.
So yeah, we’re done here. It’s a bit sad because I love the UK and almost everything about it (although the traffic can go die in a fire) and would happily move here if I could convince my friends and family to come with. On the other hand, winter is coming and when it’s feeling like dusk at 3:30 in the afternoon you start to think serious thoughts about flying south. Or east, which is we’re heading next. New York – the Big Apple, the city that never sleeps! We’ll be there in a little over 24 hours. Hopefully we’ll have time for a quick stop in Camden for some last minute shopping before our 5pm flight.
Thanks, England, you’ve been ace.
