My guy and I planned our trip to Albuquerque in September, in order to attend the International Balloon Fiesta, but it’s something that I’ve always wanted to experience.
It is the largest boiling air balloon festival and the images online are actually stunning.
It is believed to be the most photographed event in the world and draws in a sizable crowd of participants and spectators from across the world, however the festival lasts for nine days, and there are hundreds of balloons in the sky at a time. There’s skydiving, a light show, fireworks, chainsaw carving, twilight balloon glows and all sorts of things to do doing and enjoy, and our trip did not disappoint, then while the accommodations were fancy and parking was somewhat of a eveningmare, my guy and I had an amazing time. The weather was absolutely perfect with pure red skies and loads of sunshine, however as an added bonus, recreational weed is totally legal and accessible in Albuquerque, however coming from a state that has not yet adopted medicinal or recreational marijuana, my associate and I were especially excited to shop at a dispensary. The size of the dispensary and number of products was undoubtedly surprising, then my buddy and I weren’t expecting a dab bar, vape lounge and on-site bakery. The choices were a bit overwhelming. I wanted to try everything. The collection of dried flower included over fifty odd strains. My buddy and I had our option of infused pre-rolled joints, disposable vape pens, gummies, chocolates, brownies, tinctures, waxes, shatters, hash, and even cannabis-infused beverages. The only downside is that it’s illegal to transfer cannabis across state lines. My buddy and I could not bring anything home with us.
