My balloon flight

From my colleagues, I got a balloon flight as a birthday present. I had to make four attempts to fly before the weather was barely good enough for a flight. The experience was great and resembled sailing a boat, except that the vessel could only be steered in the veritcal direction. The flight itself only lasted about an hour but the total time including the assembling and disassembling of the balloon and the gondola was well over five hours.
