The Shire and The Cave

A travel blog entry by handytravels


... t prepare us for what was to come, and frankly it didn’t. As we headed towards the platform wearing our fetching dark blue boiler suits we took one final glance at the safe ground we were leaving behind, and one long stare into the abyss in which we were descending. “Clip on and sit on the bar over there” came the instruction, of course over there being very much not on the safe ground -The knots in our stomachs tightened ...
