Jules Verne

The pioneer of science-fiction, Monsieur Jules Verne, was born on this day - 183 years.

I'll drink a cup of coffee to Jules!
He has given me many wonderful moments, especially in my childhood.

Thank you Sabina for this moment of honoring this giant of literature. I also love his work, but still didn't know about some details mentioned in this video. I didn't know that he foretold Paris and Eiffel Tower.
It is also great that this video talks about his publisher Jules Hetzel. Without his love for Verne's work we wouldn't know him.

We shall drink many coffee cups during watching movies based on his novels. =0)
