|Waiting for the ride|
I was a little scared. I don't like heights very much. The Balloon was tethered to the ground and we did not really lift off and go very far. But still...
Have you ever travelled in a hot air Balloon? I was really surprised how strange it felt. In a matter of less than a minute you are high up. Floating above the earth. You hardly feel the wind. Reminded me of a song called Ueber den Wolken by German singer and songwriter named Reinhard Mey.
Ueber den Wolken
muss die Freiheit wohl grenzenlos sein...
alle Aengste, alle Sorgen sagt man
blieben darunter verborgen
und dann wuerde
was uns gross und wichtig erscheint
ploetzlich nichtig und klein...
Above the clouds
Freedom must be endless
All fears and sorrows - they say
Remain hidden beneath
and then everything
that seemed big and important to us before
becomes small and negligible
I am so glad I overcame my fear and tried it. We didn't go up above the clouds. But it was a truly an amazing experience.
