How true: “If you risk nothing, then you risk everything.” Better in action than inaction.

The Eyes of God

October 6, 2013

The Eyes of God – this is how this formation in the ceiling of Prohodna cave, which lets light in it – is called.  Awesome. This is the longest cave passage in Bulgaria – 262 metres (860 ft) long. Already on my travel agenda. 100 miles away from Sofia.
