the great escape

beyond trekking, the great adventure one can do in Sagada is spelunking. we had to be away from sunlight for four hours crossing from one cave to another. darkness surrounds us but with a reliable guide and enough light source, we surpassed this great challenging experience. i strongly believe that this applies to life.doing the cave connection comes up next. but before that, since i'm also celebrating this special day. allow me to share few things about myself.

the fifth letter of my real name is "n".
it was when i was five years old when i entered school.
i spent five years in college as an engineering student.
the fifth book that i've read is the Hardy Boys.
the fifth cellphone that i owned is a Nokia E51.
the fifth province that i visited is Zamboanga del Norte.
my fifth flight was from Manila to Cebu.
the fifth mountain that i climbed is Mt. Gulugod Baboy.
the fifth island that i've been to is the island of Romblon.

That's definitely one thing I'd like to try - spelunking! I may be wary of going through a number of caves, but I'll give it a go.
