Ballooning - My first trip in a Hot Air Ballon

Back in 2008 I had my first trip on a balloon together with my stepdad. It was a present from him for my birthday and I am happy that I had the opportunity. It was a nice experience but since I am a little afraid of heights I had to overcome this fear. But this experience helped me a lot. I gained a lot of confidence with heights and this also helped me with hiking trips I did in the last years.

Back then it was a very exciting experience for me and I took several pictures with my old point and shoot Camera. I only have little memento to this experience but I still know that i was very excited and also a little scared.
