I love Google for many reasons. But today when I opened my Google home page, I beamed.
Google's special logo is of a ballon Montgolfière. So very French!
Mais pourquoi a balloon today? I wondered. Turns out that today is the anniversary of the first successful attempt of the Montgolfier brothers to fly a hot-air balloon, in France, in 1783. Read more about it here.
Hot-air ballooning is of course popular worldwide, but to me it still has special appeal in France, where it was invented.
I've always longed to go on one of Buddy Bombard's fabulous balloon tours of France. He hasn't invited me on a press junket, yet. I'm still hoping.
Meanwhile, I guess I'll have to settle for a quick ride 500 feet up at the Parc André Citroën.
