While on a once in a lifetime trip to Santorini, we literally STUMBLED upon the RED BULL : Art of Motion. This is a worldwide ParKour Championship that was taking place on the cliffside of Oia, Santorini. If you are wondering what ParKour is, it is Freerunning, or as I stated above...The art of falling (beautifully and skillfully).

I was having flashbacks to my middle school JNCO jean days, as I saw these guys slowly trickling in with large baggy pants hopping up on walls. I was confused, what was going on? Then the speakers rolled in and the RedBull car appears (Did they boat that in?). Medical crews were all of a sudden just posted up waiting. Insert massive crowds on rooftops everywhere and a loud commentator that I could not see.

We headed back from a Tavern pool with my lifeless sleeping 4 year old when we happened upon the crowds. In order to all be a part of the surprise madness, we took turns holding my tiny sleeper and squeezed in to see what all the hubbub was about.

I mean I've heard of ParKour, and witnessed some amateur kids trying their hand (or feet i should say) at it, but was not aware that it was indeed a "THING". I pushed through the sweaty crowd, swapping bodily fluids from arm to arm and finally scored a tiny spot to watch. I will be honest, I thought it a bit silly until I saw it with my own two eyes.

Seeing the world's best free-runners, was very interesting, because if i attempted something of the sort, I would surely die - quickly. It is quite a skill, the use of improvisation and having to think [on your feet]. So if you are interested, or just wondering what it looks like to fall with such style, then check out the link to see REDBULL's official video.
