It all started with a beautiful video of a very curious hot air balloon, and it turned into an internet hunt that left me smiling.
First, let’s start with the lovely video that started it all. I stumbled on Skywhale and was equally weirded out and enchanted. I mean, it looks like a terrifying bird-whale floating in the sky over the Outback. Can you imagine hiking and seeing this ridiculous looking beast come floating overhead? And why does it look like a humpback whale with a bird body?!
So then I was thinking ‘why aren’t there more super awesome hot air balloons out there like this?!’. And then I Googled. And then I realized that obviously there are more awesome hot air balloons out there like this, how could there not? People got hobbies and making awesome hot air balloons must be one of them.
So there you have it. Awesome hot air balloons.
