Hot air ballooning

Although hot air balloons date back to late 18 century when the Montgolfier Brothers developed it and as early as 220 AD airborne lanterns were used by the Chinese it was in 1960 when the first successful flight took place in a modern design balloon.
I was always curious on how you would feel being in an open cage a few thousand feet above the ground with the only noise of the gas burner every now and then.
It felt like being suspended in mid-air without moving at all.
