Day 2 - Paris Montmartre - 80 days in Europe

Log Diary
Day 2

Apparently, winds do not want to help me... I have not left Paris yet, and still fly above it, which allows me to admire this romantic city, so beautiful seen from there...
Here is Montmartre , where the poets and all great artists of Paris have stayed, in the past, now, and will in the future..

Here, this is it. I took off very early this morning, in the Defense area in Paris... I am very excited by the first moments of my trip.

I fly above the Defense Arch, and start towards the centre of Paris.

Photography project : 80 days in a hot balloon

Let me introduce myself. My name is Aphiles. For several months, I have been preparing to take off on my hot balloon. I have always wanted to be able to share my emotions through my travels, and now this will be possible.. In one week, I will take off and show you, share with you this 80-days long adventure. 80 days to travel round Europe, where I will follow the winds.

Each week, I will send you my onboard diary, and a picture of my travels above European countries and cities.

I don't really yet know where each day of the week we will stop, pushed around by trade winds, squalls, and maybe even storms - which I quite fear.

My aim during this trip is to bring you with me, make you discover this beautiful Europe through the landscapes which have been occupying my dreams for many years, hoping that all will go well.

I hope to see you soon, I am already eager to send you my first impressions, at 400m height, where only silence and the beauty of nature will be my company.
