Up! It has got to be one of my favourite animated films of all time! I love it, the cute characters, the adventures, the flying house going to South America! I want one of those! 

Well a team of brilliant people at National Geographic got so inspired by the balloon elevated house that they decided to build a real life size version to see if they could have the same effect.  Three hundred balloons each full of a whole tank of helium, engineers, 2 pilots and huge team of helpers got together to help out with the project.  The result was beautiful, magical and a LiMoBliss. I wish i had been there to see it.  Here is a video of what happened, if you want to see or learn more of how it happened, click here.
