J: We met some other travelers at our hostel and all rented bikes for the day. We rode in convoy to check out the caves at Ke Bang,
S: We arrived in one piece, but there was a slight hairy moment when James was beeping his horn in between two bikes and instead of moving apart they moved together - lets just say I was squeezing my bum cheeks together and praying lol.
J: We first went to the Phong Nha cave, which is a water cave only accessible by a boat ride and the water was crystal clear in the cave. We were able to get off the boat to walk through part of the cave and it had some beautiful stalagmite/stalactites.
S: We then went to Paradise Cave and wow it was spectacular. We definitely done the caves in the right order and the journey there was stunning. We only slightly missed the turning to get there. We walked about a kilometer into the cave and just stood back and admired it. Finally James watching the discovery channel paid off, he was the guide explaining how everything was formed inside the cave and kept our fellow travelers entertained. After that we had to get our skates on to make the night bus, as we were 100 kilometers away and only two hours to the bus arriving.
J: Sam is right, the ride was truly stunning, and I felt like the dinosaurs were about to come chase us up the road. But they wouldn't have caught us as we where whizzing down the roads, we made it back with plenty of time to spare.
Mel I love the 'only slightly missed the turning' comment...god I love you guys!!!
