" Have you ever dreamed of being carried into the sky by a giant bouquet of colorful toy balloons?

That's the idea behind cluster ballooning.  The pilot wears a harness, to which a cluster of large, helium-filled balloons are attached.  Control is achieved by releasing ballast to ascend, or by bursting balloons to descend. "

What happens if you burst too many balloons ? [xx(]

Scarey, but looks fun if you don't think to much about the possibilities!

Album:   Reflections
Title:   Up, Up And Away


(j. webb)

Would you like to ride
In my beautiful balloon ?
Would you like to glide
in my beautiful balloon?
We could flow among the stars
Together you and I
For we can fly
For we can fly

Up and away
In my beautiful
My beautiful balloon

The world's a nicer place
In my beautiful balloon
It wears a nicer face
In my beautiful balloon
We can sing a song
And sail along the silver sky
For we can fly
Up and away
In my beautiful
My beautiful balloon

Suspended under a twilight canopy  
For we We'll search the sky for a star to guide us
If by some chance you find yourself loving me
We'll find a cloud to hide us
Keep the moon beside us

Love is waiting there
In my beautiful balloon
Way up in the air
In my beautiful balloon
If you'll hold my hand
We'll chase your dream across the sky
For we can fly
For we can fly

Up and away
In my beautiful
My beautiful balloon

Up, up and away
Up, up and We'll search the sky for a star to guide us
If by some chance you find yourself loving me
We'll find a cloud to hide us
Keep the moon beside us

Love is waiting there
In my beautiful balloon
Way up in the air
In my beautiful balloon
If you'll hold my hand
We'll chase your dream across the sky
For we can fly
For we can fly

Up and away
In my beautiful
My beautiful balloon

Up, up and away
Up, up and away
Up, up and away
Up, up and away
Up, up and away
Up, up and away
Up, up and away
Up, up and away can fly

Yeah,  Heights have never bothered me,
I would love to be up there, feeling free,
looking as far as the horizon.


Love you lots

Helena  xxx
