Imagine soaring through the new morning air over a surreal landscape of strangely shaped rocks turned into fairy tale houses. You are standing in a basket, suspended in the sky by a giant balloon which gently drifts though the valley of love. Dozens of other brightly lit balloons join your dance through the sky. The sun peaks over a cliff and suddenly the sky turns to bands of pink, yellow and blue. You smile as you realised that this is no dream, this ...
