One of the best things about travel for me, is the discovery of things to put on the 'to try out one day list'. The other day we came across a young man practising what seemed to be walking on a low but wide tightrope. Well I didn't know what it was until I went online to find out what he was on, and discovered it was called slacklining.
Until then I had no idea what a slack line was. At first I thought he had a low tightrope and the process did seem to be similar. But when got a little closer up, I saw the wider line that he was walking on, and wellll... I have to say I was tempted for a small moment to ask if I could try it out.

It's amazing, not only that people are able to balance like this, but the places they manage to set the lines up as well, must be a trick in itself. Water's got to be a good place to try it out, at least it would be a soft landing... given that you're not up to high I might add.
I became more and more interested and then I found this - The Ballerina Stunt...
So who is coming with me to give this a go?
