Float Across Burma via Hot Air Balloon in a Gorgeous Travel Video

Patrik Wallner, known for his skate videos, spent his week off shooting this three-minute escape. 

Patrik Wallner, known for his skate videos shot in exotic locations, took a week off to visit Burma. Instead of putting his camera down, however, he captured the beautiful scenes below from the weightless perspective of a hot air balloon. Seeing "all the temples illuminated by the morning light was really a magical experience which I can't stress enough for you to try for yourself if you happen to go to that side of the world!" he says. Wallner describes his ongoing travel video project in a short interview here
