For now I've been abroad only once, in Moldova. But I still believe that my dreams will come true!
Also I'm exiting of hot air balloon since childhood. One of my favorite child's films is In Search of Captain Grant (V poiskah Kapitana Granta) and there was a story about first met of Jules Verne and his future wife Onorine. Jules was traveling on hot air balloon and their balloon failed. Onorine and her father have helped him.
I saw real balloon closely only once on music festival Slavske rock in 2008. It was very rainy and drops of rain became warm near balloon.
This summer I've remembered my love to balloons and made necklace with embroidered hot air balloon. I hope you'll like it :)
I wish all your dream became true!
