After a near panic-attack—or maybe it was claustrophobia, I’m not sure—from being in rooms without windows for six days straight, I get on the bus from Baguio to Sagada resolving to do better.

I've been planning to conquer Mt. Pulag for the longest time. I just haven't found the time to do so. Last month, I guess the heavens heard my heart's fervent desire. A last minute invitation from a friend gave me the opportunity to finally set foot on our country's third highest mountain.
