A member of the 'Dream Walker' group jumps from atop the rugged rocks overlooking the azure waters of Navagio beach, one of Greece's most picturesque leisure spots.

This is rope jumping — part diving, part rock climbing, with a touch of engineering thrown in. A band of European adventurers are aiming to go "around the world in 80 jumps" and get a unique view of the most ravishing nature and architecture the globe has to offer.

The jumpers, who include an accountant, a bank manager and a physics student among their number, have planned future leaps at a cave complex in Croatia, a French viaduct, skyscrapers in Las Vegas and Johannesburg, and the Grand Canyon.
