Sky = cloud? That's going to trip me up from time to time, I'm sure.

It's also very confusing as a dane, we often use 'sky' as 'cloud'. Very confusing :)

By the way the sky is called 'himmelen'. If you were wondering :)

Unicorns and airborne? Technically a Pegasus should take over this responsibility.

Sky originally meant "cloud" in Old Norse but when the people in England began to adopt this word the meaning shifted to "sky". I think it makes a lot of sense if taking the weather of England in to account. Not entirely my idea though, original idea is from this youtube comment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDAU3TpunwM

How can I get up there on that cloud with you?
