These rides are normally for a party of 6-8, so you will have to pay extra if you want the balloon to yourselves. It is probably better to make a weekend of it, as most balloon rides start in the early morning and you will want to be at the location the night before.
Gift Ideas: Boyfriends #3 Tickets for Motorbike or Car Racing
There are all kinds of things happening at any race track or speedway as well as the cars or bikes. You will both have a great day out.

Whether it is for watching birds or motorbikes, horses or the moon, everyone loves to use a telescope or binoculars. Just looking at the night sky through binoculars enables you to see ten times as many stars. The binocular lenses are about one inch across, so has an area of about 0.8 square inches, each. The pupil in your eye is only about 0.25 inches across, giving each pupil an area of 0.05 square inches. The binocular lenses gather 16 times more light than the unaided eye, meaning you can see very faint stars and planets.
