Acrophobia is the fear of heights (read: the cliffs in Mountain Province).
Claustrophobia is the fear of enclosed space (read: caves in Sagada).
The real deal with the monthlong planned Banaue – Sagada – Baguio trip was not to have a plan at all. No hotel reservation. No bus ticket reservation. No itinerary. And last but not the least, no OC me. I discussed this with JR, a friend and a co-Amazing Race Asia contestant-wannabe (yes, we almost auditioned if not for my absence since I was in Belfast that time). Without batting an eyelash, the green light was on and “Boys Night Out in the North” – Chapter 1 was up.
