Caving with group 7 by Freya Barber

Having decided that we were not going biking we consulted that we were going caving. It took about 20 minutes to get there (though it felt like a life time) to get to your location; and then we had to go down a certain path to get to the cave. After all of us went in, we got lowered down into the dark belly of the tavern. It was quite annoying because evreyone kept screaming maybe they were getting panicky, maybe because Lewis (also known as "hulk") got stuck; or maybe because Ruka's head torch kept falling off.
  Once we got out of that cave 5 more brave ones (including me) went into another. In that cavern there was a small route that Steven (our instructor) called the caterpillar; where you had to walk some of the way and shuffle on your back the other. Finally you slid down into this puddle and continued to the left to retreat from the darkness of the cave into the light of day. We had to walk all the way back to the mini bus and to finish  off the day we had some fantastic orange juice.
