Places To See Before I Die: King's Walk - Spain

I've been a little obsessed with Spain lately, for a number of reasons. Most prominent is my desperation to regain my fluency in Spanish and my obsession with the Spanish dramedy 'Los Hombres De Paco'.

But another reason, as a semi-avid hiker, is the King's Walk (El Camino Del Rey), the most dangerous trail for hikers in the world. It's gone years without maintainences, and entire sections of walkway are collasped, leaving only the beam. But, wow! Look at that view?

I'd go in a second, if I didn't know that my extreme clumsiness would manifest itself in a pitch forward into that beautiful chasm that I would probably be gawking at.

Luckily, in 2006, a renovation plan was introduced.

Who knows? Maybe I can go and not die. That would be nice.
