Über den Wolken
Anyway, we drove to a field near Hivange, asked the farmer for permission and got ready for take-off. I had to help get the balloon ready so there are no pictures of that. We flew over plenty of small towns that I didn't really recognize from up above, one of the places I did recognize fairly easily though was the Aire de Berchem (and in case you were wondering, no, the police car did not stop at the stop sign), the pig farm near the Kuelbicher Haff (the latter is hidden rather well in the woods) and the Mariendaller Haff, near which we landed gently in another field - this time we didn't ask the farmer's permission beforehand though :) And with gently I mean that none of my camera equipment got damaged when the basket tipped over during the landing. That's all that matters, my head has seen its share of bumps.
The title refers to the song Über den Wolken by Reinhard Mey.
