Hot Air
The Austrian countryside is a beautiful place for a Hot Air balloon ride, but be aware of the local traditions before you go. It's customary to perform a little ceremony after your first flight which involves:

1. Setting a small bit of your hair on fire
2. Rubbing earth from the place where you landed on your head
3. Pouring champaign on your head
4. Acquiring a new name, usually very long and very silly.

Lawn Landing

You never know exactly where you're going to land when you take off in a hot air balloon. This family was happily surprised to see us drop in, but pilots usually carry small gifts to appease homeowners in situations like this.
