You would not believe your eyes
if ten million fireflies lit up the world as I fell asleep - Owl City

People walked further and further into the caves we had to stop them, tell them to turn their lights off and look above their heads, everyone as amazed when ten million glow worms lit up the caves.
Waipu caves are just two hours north of Auckland. I love that they have kept it as original as possible ‘visit at own risk’ without oversized signs or fenced off areas. It is completely free and consists of three caves, to get to the second and third you have to wade in knee deep water, duck under low cave ceiling and climb over muddy, slippery rocks, in my opinion, worth it ten times over! This photo is actually two photos put together, one of me and one of the glow worms using a long exposure and blue light, you shouldn’t use a flash and avoid pointing your torch at the worms as that can potentially harm them. See more in my stories or under my ‘New Zealand Highlights’ in my bio 🐛 Let me know if you plan a trip here and I’d be more than happy to help you out xx
