You can zipline from one country to another


There is a zipline in Spain that runs from Sanclucar de Guadiana in Andalucia to Alcoutim in Portugal and the hour time difference between the two countries means you are transported back in time by an hour.  Sounds cool, doesn’t it?

However, the 60 second ride is not for the faint-hearted, as you can reach speeds of up to 50mph as you zoom across the Guadiana River.

The 2,365ft zipline was created by David Jarma who said that: “Two villages in two countries, separated by a river 150 metres wide – a zipline just seemed obvious to me.  It also seemed like a great way to unite both places, since a bridge had been talked about for many years, but was never realised.”

The trip is not expensive and will only set you back 15 euros – although you don’t get to spend that much time in Portugal, as there is a boat waiting on the other side to bring you back to Spain.

Looks cool, but we’ll be keeping our feet firmly on the ground thanks very much.
