  1. Kissed by the darkness - Cave training as it should be

    Just another cave diving story, enjoy:

    I close my eyes, push back all the thoughts that want to come out and clear my mind and suddenly feel warm and comfortable, like the cave just wrapped me in a soft sensual hug.

  5. Adventure 101

    "Why do you want to be a cave diver? - She asked.
