A report from a visit to Waitomo, New Zealand for a fun day of caving:).

Paying utmost attention for the safety briefing before the abseil down.


Down into the abyss:). At ~100metres it is the world's deepest commercial cave abseil.


Only one hand:).


My sis bought me the trip for a birthday present.


Into the middle of the earth:).


From left, Cassandra from California, me, my sister Victoria, and hubby Steve.


Almost at the bottom of the descent.


Ready for landing.


Sandwiches & Muffins for lunch before heading into the dark.


My 'Rocky' pose:D.


Jumping in the deep end:)!


Clambering up the two rocks faces. Took a bit of co-ordination, especially wearing gumboots:)!


Not for the claustrophobic:)!


Luckily the water level wasn't too high after recents rains.


Steve squeezing his 6 foot 4 frame through.


Glow worms:).


At the end after 7 hours underground!


And back to the surface:).


At Auckland Airport, about to board the EK A380 for the flight back to Dubai:).
