Creative explorer Jonathan Trappe crosses the English Channel with inspiration from Oscar-winning animated movie, ‘Up.’ Forsaking the typical modes of transportation like airplanes, Jonathan Trappe opted for several dozen helium balloons in his travels across the channel.

In succeeding in his trip, Jonathan Trappe is clearly the first triumphant ‘cluster balloonist’ in his journey from Dover to Calais.

He found his high-flying expedition rewarding and was extremely proud of himself when he landed in a vegetable field in France.
