Up in the skies

So, I know I have told you all I am deathly afraid of heights. However, there is one thing I always wanted to do when I was younger: ride in a hot air balloon.

Crazy, right? I mean, I would be in this tiny basket up in the air with no instant control of how high we are or when we land. We would just be floating along, potentially at the mercy of strong wind currents.

Looking at these hot air balloons now, I think I must have been out of my mind. At the same time, they do look rather majestic hovering above the water. The idea of floating in between the clouds and the ground seemed so serene to me back then, yet the idea of flying in an airplane frightened, and still frightens, me to no end. (Try figuring that one out!)

While I am pretty sure I will never set foot in a hot air balloon, it is still fun to imagine the ride.
