Sumaging Cave or Sumaguing Cave News
The Sumaguing Cave in Sagada, Mountain Province is my first cave experience, and that was way back in 2007. Since then, I've been to a few others, and no matter how you try not to, you cannot help but make comparisons. Fortunately, the time that we explored Sumaguing Cave was a period where only a few people knew about it. Between then and now, of course, the place practically blew up and practically hundreds of visitors drive up to Sagada every weekend. That was certainly one of the shocks I received when I set foot in the place anew.

Growing up, I read so much about the world outside. I never really ever dreamed of editing a travel magazine, even when I was already entertaining thoughts of doing magazine work. I did read a lot of Life and The National Geographic, maybe some Travel + Leisure, but it was the lifestyle magazines I got hooked on, whether it was Vanity Fair or Vogue. To follow, say, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor as they roamed the world, lingering at the cafes they frequented, the hotels they stayed in, the ballrooms they waltzed into, the homes they lived in, was the kind of travel that caught my fancy.
