The most sacred ground in Australia is not a church, shrine or mosque. _ It is the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG or just “the G” to locals). _ Today is the Aussie Rules football grand final in Melbourne, Australia. Every year on the last Saturday in September. It’s even a public holiday. The entire country stops for this game. So if you try calling an Australian friend and they don’t answer… Don’t take it personally. 😉 _ This shot is not from a drone… I was hanging out the side of a hot air balloon with @globalballooningaustralia. _ #mcg #footy

“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” -Winston Churchill _ Ballooning at sunrise. The only way to fly. _ Did you know: Hot air balloon pilots coordinate with air traffic controllers just like any other aircraft. It takes a lot of skill and experience to guide one of these for landing in an urban area. Our pilot, Kiff from @globalballooningaustralia, did a spectacular job. – #ballooning #hotairballoon

Golden sunrise over Melbourne, Australia. Amazing! _ Flying in a hot air balloon with @globalballooningaustralia. There’s no wind in the balloon as it floats with the wind currents, making the ride perfectly serene and silent. _ Even from 1km above the ground I picked up a strong signal on my new 4G @tepwireless hotspot so I could share the experience live on IG Stories.

“I cannot say whether things will get better if we change; what I can say is they must change if they are to get better.” – Georg C. Lichtenberg _ This is how I greeted the sunrise this morning… _ 1000 meters above Melbourne, Australia in a hot air balloon.

“Does a leaf, when it falls from the tree in winter, feel defeated by the cold? The tree says to the leaf: That’s the cycle of life. You may think you’re going to die, but you live on in me. It’s thanks to you that I’m alive, because I can breathe. It’s also thanks to you that I have felt loved, because I was able to give shade to the weary traveller. Your sap is in my sap; we are one thing.” – Paulo Coelho _ Watching children learn traditional Balinese dance at Ubud Palace. _ Bali dancers learn the craft as children and even in the womb they are played Balinese music. They are taught to dance with their hands before they can walk. Official training as a Bali dancer starts as young as 7. _ In Hinduism, dance is an accompaniment to the perpetual dissolving and reforming of the world. _ #travellife #worldshotz
