Bonjour and welcome along to my brand new balloon challenge for 2018. For this project I am going to be making a virtual journey around the world visiting a different country each week. For my first week I am starting off fairly local to my home country by visiting our neighbours, France.
France is really well known for its fine dining and wine so I felt i needed to include some of these in my picture, as you can see I have the grapes which eventually get turned into wine plus I have included the croissant and baguette. The little man I have made is not wearing the traditional national dress of France, and I must confess that during my many visits to France I have never seen anyone wearing the stereotypical stripy jumper while riding a bicycle, it is however what many people think of when they imagine a Frenchman so that is what I did.
Finally I had to include one of the most famous landmarks in all of France, the Eiffel Tower, This marvel of engineering stands in the centre of Paris and has dominated the skyline for 130 years. I made my Eiffel Tower in red so that the complete picture includes the 3 colours from the French flag.
Next week I will be travelling a bit further from from my home to a country that is home to the Volcano Rabbit.
