This is a Real Road!

Thanks to Joanna Hughes for this one!

This is a real road in Norway, called the Atlantic Ocean Road. It's eight kilometres (five miles) of sheer insanity and wave-soaked driving.

According to Atlas Obscura:

"The curvy road dips and arches over the brutal waves of the Norwegian Sea that often crash over the pavement during storms, and was subjected to 12 hurricanes during construction. A 5.2 mile segment of County Road 64 in Norway, it consists of several causeways, seven bridges, and four viewpoints to take in the scenic views . . .

Driving along the Atlantic Road is like teetering on the edge on the sea. The road's rollar coaster feel, curvy bridges and phenomenal views have made it a favorite of road trippers and motorcyclists."
