Bozkovske dolomitove jeskyne

I had an opportunity for a brief visit to the Bozkovské Dolomitové Jeskynĕ or the Bozkov Dolomite caves. The cave system is 1060 meters long and hosts the largest underground lake in Czech Republic.

This was just a show cave tour, so unfortunately no crawling in mud like in Gotland!

More information about this cave can be found from the wikipedia page. A good list of show caves in Czech Republic can be found from the expat page.

Interesting forms and colours:

Railway to the cave's upper parts was used during the construction of the walking paths and support walls in the cave:

This Rope Swing Between Two Trams Looks Pretty Fun

This rope is set up between two trams at a ski resort in Sweden. Usually, a video of rope swing includes someone slamming into the side of a hill. This one, however, is a little more eloquent and beautiful. The only question that remains is would you make the jump?

Paragliding on a Snowmobile, Not Your Average Slednecks

Paragliding on a Snowmobile, Not Your Average Slednecks

They call themselves the Stunt Freaks Team for a reason. Turns out it's actually possible to combine paragliding and snowmobiling into the same sport. After smashing the sled on the first trial, this band of extreme-lifestyle lunatics put it back together again and successfully succeeded flying it off the cliff in Rikgranson, Sweden. Apparently using a snowmobile on the ground is too mainstream these days.
