These travelers live on the edge. They make us feel shame on the kind of stale life we are having. They took the conventional travelling ideals into to the trash. For them the entire world is ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’. Nothing stops them. Having a family of three children doesn’t stop Derek and McKenzie from travelling; being deaf doesn’t stop Calvin young and so does heights and distances doesn’t scare Hans and Rehage. I am sure there are several others who travel amidst several odds but here’s the story of five travelers who lives on the edge living their dream.

Warning; Acrophobic people don’t read this and don’t even think of watching the video. It ‘ill will be fatal.
Sky running is an extreme sport. It’s not something for the soft hearted. It’s for the people who have nerves of steel and muscles to back it up. Hans Kristin along with his team ‘sky blazers’ have conquered almost all of the peaks in their home country Norway and they are not stopping. Sky-running competitions are held world wide. The winner is the one who reach the highest point with least time. Well ‘sky blazers’ can 15 hours straight! Watch this video and you will get the chill.
These travelers and explorers are living their dream through conditions most of cant fathom. Some of them could seem to be quite unrealistic or mundane but in the end none of that matters if they are happy.
