    Our backpacking journey started off in small conversation in our office. As everyone of us has different taste and style of travels. Numerous of places in the Philippines blooms to everyone, wanting to visits them all.  But budget is always been a factor to every travelers. As it was our stumble block in planning out the first one.

    We scoured the internet digging to some places that fits our budget and travel style. Finally, we came to discover that our travel desires boils into one. And that is backpacking. No accommodation. No big group. No worries.

    The first place we visited was Anawangin Cove in Zambales, in November 2011. Though a lot of our colleagues showed their interest in joining our adventure. We ended up in small group of six members. Nevertheless it was a success thus we named our group as "Tha Backpackers". It shortly followed up in discovering waterfalls.
