  1. I have to say that some of these risk takers have took my breath away, they are really brave people!
    I would never ever take part in some of those sports, as white water rafting or extrem skydiving. Actually, I think that people who practice skydiving must be mad unless they are not keen on living.
    On the other side, I find very interesting and not dangerous, or risking, snorkelling or scuba diving. Both look enjoyable as well as relaxing.
    Even though I do not know anyone who practics parkour, I have heard that it is really difficult, extrem and full of excitement. To tell you the truth, it is the one in which I would be interested assuming that I am not capable to do so.

    P.S. I do not have any knowledge about climbing, I have some doubts about this video is true or not..
