The Man Who Travelled By Bubble
One day, a man, named Reza Baluchi, woke up and thought, "I think today is the day I take an adventure! And I won't take a car, a plane, nor a boat. The transportation I will use, will be a bubble." Now I know what you're thinking, "Wow! This guy must not be very smart," and trust me, you are not the only one. The man attempted to travel from Florida, IL to Bermuda. That's 1,033 miles in a plastic bubble, on the ocean. He moved by running in the bubble like a hamster on a hamster wheel. Of course, Baluchi didn't make it to Bermuda, but he did make it to about 70 miles east of St. Augustine. When he was rescued by the air crew, he was groggy and was suffering from fatigue and disorientation. He did not want to give up on his adventure, but, at the end, he ended up in the helicopter on his way back to Florida.
