Summer has officially started, and with it the best time of the year for outdoor activities. Bored of playing football every week, or on the lookout for some adventure? Why not try something new? Many outdoor activities and extreme sports can give you the rush of adrenaline you need while you discover new places.
Extreme sports enthusiast Kjersti Eide, jumped from a drop of 984 meters in Kjerag mountain, one of Norway's most popular spots for BASE jumping. You can see her in action in the Off the Wall video by Norwegian browser maker Opera Software. “For me, life is about pushing your own boundaries. I am always on the lookout for new ways to challenge myself, and I think I've finally found balance in life through a fulfilling job as a nurse and a passion for extreme sports outside work,” explains Kjersti.
