Malko - VIEWS, NO TH… on October 3, 2008

Fantastic views! I'm so jealous...

It's Interesting to compare your shot with the map at right, helped with your notes (although I must to rotate it into my mind).

Do you know the altitude you was when you took this shot? I think you was very very hight.

Hi Malko this is one is taken nearly maximum hight from about 8.000 ft (ca 2.600 m).

It was a wonderful "flight" (in german language a strikt rule says that balloons are driving and never flying) with following elevation to aristocratic status!! So let me tell you - you are talking now to Baron Alexander der freischwebende Herr der Winde von und zu Roitham.

Thanks for your presence and royal wishes ,

Baron Alexander ;)

Well... but now, that you are with te foot on the ground... must I still call you Baron Alexander der freischwebende Herr der Winde von und zu Roitham?

Anyway, I'm curious to know: was your balloon made of petticoats as Baron Münchhausen's one. ;)

Plebeian Malko :(

You think it´s a joke? - No it´s real - following a long tradition basing on the first flight and elevation of the Brothers Montgolfierand when you take a ride by yourself you become a aristocrate too such as every balloon tourist!!
