Travel Fantasy: Vietnam Cave

Wednesday, September 14, 2011


Oh my goodness, nature never seizes to amaze me. Have you heard about this cave? Sometime last year a group of explorers discovered an enormous "mammoth infinite cave" hidden in Vietnam. The passage is about 300 feet wide and the ceiling nearly 800 feet tall. It has enough room to fit an entire New York City block of 40-story buildings and a skyscraper. I can barely grasp how huge that must be and I can't get over how sensational those photographs are. Darlings, have you ever been on a cave tour before? xo

P.S:  Stay tuned for Giveaway Wednesday!
