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

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

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





With the barren harsh desert of the Sahara.

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:
