Even though many years have
passed since the Chernobyl’s meltdown, the radiation levels still exist, but on
the low. There is a tourist guide there, called Sergei Ivanchuk who is offering
the experience of how people were living here showing also the disaster of the
nuclear power on the late 80s. Passing along the corridors of old buildings and
roads, he never puts on special masks or gears but he recommends anyone not to
drink tap water or wear shorts and sandals.’
Mountain Bike Guide, Bolivia's "Road of
The old world’s most dangerous highway climbs up a famous Bolivian
mountain pass, La Cumbre, at an elevation of 4,650 metres (15,260 ft) above the
sea level. Almost 200-300 people have lost their lives here annually. A vehicle
can barely pass the narrow road, with no guardrail to protect you from falls of
up to 2,000 feet. So, 4 Bike Guides here (3 American and 1 French guy) advice you how to change
gears and use the breaks without risking your life. Of course they don’t force
you to go faster on the lane, but always keep your feet on the pedals and your
eyes towards. Rain can make the road muddy and slippery, and rain or fog can
reduce a driver to feeling blindfolded, so if you consider coming here avoid
the period of mid-December until March.
Killer Whale Trainer, Orlando.
Sounds risky already. Training
killer whales is not as fascinating as watching them do a show. Many trainers
have been drowned by this beautiful creatures when just entering the tanks to
swim with them or feed them even on live shows too. Even though they seem to be
quiet and playful, never underestimate natures power.
Meet the most dangerous job in Spain. Every year in Pamplona, revelers
try to outrun bulls stampeding through the narrow streets of Pamplona. Bull shepherds are the persons in green polo
tshirts, who tame the bulls protecting the crowd and the runners. Many
«pastores» have been gored by saving the runners but thankfully the fatals are
a few. (200 injuries per year while 14 deaths in 100 years).
Slovakia's High Tatras
who make their living carrying supplies such as food, drinks and gas tanks on
their backs to remote cabins high in eastern Slovakia's High Tatras, a mountain
range that straddles the Slovak-Polish border and rises to more than 2,500
meters. They can carry loads up to 80 kilos more than 4 times per week, all
year around, to a cabin many meters up. So, imagine the difficulties in
summertime and in winter too. Helicopters are prohibitively expensive and the
cabins—used year-round by hikers, climbers and off-piste skiers—aren't
connected to the power grid. Instead, they rely on gas lamps or diesel
generators, which require regular refueling. Who would do this?
