Die Himmelbahn

Airplanes and flying are fascinating. I actually got into my current career as a software developer because I wasn’t satisfied with the gauges available to me in a flight simulator. And while I’m not flying flight simulator any more, I am still slinging code. Not bad, I think.

    The wording “Himmelbahn” has something poetic, and I’m sure I won’t forget this. in fact, it sounds much friendlier then our word “der Kondensstreifen”. Also, it reminds me of the word “Bimmelbahn”, which pons.eu translates with “narrow-gauge railway train (with a warning bell)”.

      That’s interesting. I was simply making Wortspiel, and I doubt it’s an actual term. Kondensstreifen is the actual term, but I didn’t like that one as much. When I took the photo, I wasn’t thinking so much on der Kondensstreifen, but on the idea of a skyway. It’s interesting to see how my readers interpret something.

      Thanks for sharing yours.

        Thank you for your reply. I remember, that my daughter, at the age of 4, invented the word “Wolkenrohr” for “Kondensstreifen” πŸ˜€

          That’s pretty clever. I bet they’ve been Wolkenrohr to you since, if only in your head. πŸ˜ƒ
