wow-- Watched this with my 3 and 5 year old boys. I screeched, they said "wow" and "awesome" and "Can i do that when I grow up." I said yes.

I'm actually not sure what impresses me more: the stunts or the filmmaking! Thanks for the link, Janet!

That man bikes better than I walk.

Wow. We did the same trip across Scotland in 2001, and was our favourite trip, with such stunning landscapes, warm, sunny days (well, until we hit the bridge to Skye) and wonderful, hospitable people. We thought we were brave driving on the left side of the road- apparently, we were going about it all wrong.

Thank you so much for reminding me why Scotland is stunning. By the way, Janet, I know you've been to Nova Scotia- same terrain, just bigger and longer. You must find your way there if you haven't already. It is such an awesome landscape.

I'm with you---he makes it look so effortless, like a ballet dancer.

We were just up in Skye a few months ago. It was great to see the whole thing again. As breathtaking as always. Dh got homesick watching this video. Thanks for sharing.

Really Good Dog, Really Good Dog. I spent weeks on assignment photographing the Highlands and the Isle. Skye MacKinnon lives there, encircled by sheep and yearns to write about love. A WIP novel.

Fabulous! My current WIP figures a bike messenger (who does parkour for fun) and Danny MacAskill is one of the inspirations for the story. Thanks for sharing more of his vids - I hadn't seen these.

Haste yee back ;-) said...

I am currently IN Scotland. I just went to Edinburgh Castle TODAY. How did you know this was what I wanted to see? :P Thanks!

Would you be interested in seeing a query for a parkour-centric novel?
