"It is indeed an incredible adrenaline rush, to be there so high, to feel the bridge shaking a little, to look down and see the running river.
Nope: Portugal Opens World’s Longest Footbridge 600-Feet Above River

These are a couple videos of the 1,693-foot long pedestrian bridge that just opened near Arouca in northern Portugal, crossing the River Paiva. It is officially recognized as the world’s longest pedestrian footbridge. Would you walk it? I don’t think I could do it. I don’t even think I could crawl it. Honestly, I don’t even like looking at it. Despite Hite being my middle name, I’m actually afraid of heights. Heights and ghosts, nothing else bothers me.

Keep going for two videos, the second of which is of the bridge’s construction.
