The length of South America. A great short video. Love the music and karaoke-style beginning 8)

Bad roads in Brazil

Kashgar to Lhasa across the Tibetan Plateau. The highest road on earth at over 5200m altitude :o






And some quiet backroads in Cambodia (part of a series about touring Cambodia and Laos by 'the hungry cyclist')

And then there's a different sort of 'extreme' in Africa. People everywhere in towns!





With the barren harsh desert of the Sahara.

Crossing the ice of Lake Baikal in Siberia. The deepest lake in the world.

Another extreme tour on an ice road - the Dempster Highway to the Arctic coast in Canada. The last part of this road is actually along the river ice, only trafficable in winter. Practice your Italian with this video :wink:
