Attendees of this festival slept on hammocks that hung across the Italian alps

That’s definitely going on my NOT-bucket-list list. At Italy’s biggest slackline festival, the International Highline Meeting, attendees (or slackers, as they’re called) showed how they love laughing at the face of death by doing stunts and taking photos as they balanced precariously on tightropes hanging above the Italian Alps.

While those activities in itself might make most of us cower in fear, it isn’t until naptime that the real excitement begins. Attendees attached hammocks onto the tightropes and camped out, giving them a truly unique bedside view.

Those brave enough to attend this festival were rewarded with stunning views and really cool selfies. For the rest of us sissies, I think a hammock at the beach would suffice, yeah?
