Travel Video of the Week: Insane POV Mountain Biking in Chile

Red Bull

It seems like every time there’s an insane adventure video on YouTube, the folks at Red Bull are behind it.

Travel Video of the Week: Dramatic Skydive Rescue

Skydiving

I’m not into skydiving, but this is an incredible video (the incredible part starts a minute in).
