The BACKPACKERS' Huling Hirit sa Tag-init 2014 BORAWAN ISLAND
By: Nickson Garcia
This may have been the longest summer series for The BACKPACKERS (aka BP) when as early as the month of February we started with our yearly "TheBackpackers - Hirit Sa Tag-Init" series.
On February, five (5) Backpackers and friends went to the beautiful Residencia De Riego, Sampaguita Beach in Anilao, Batangas where a supposed Tingloy Island escape turned out to be a weekend turnaround that resulted to a must read story. On March, BPs went on a series of cave expeditions in Biak na Bato National Park at San Miguel Bulacan and Nueva Ecija's Hidden Gem, the Minalungao National Park where we had a memorable socials courtesy of "JunJun moves" and "Jen's breakdance". Also in this month, six (6) BPs went on the long awaited Sagada, Mountain Province adventures. The month of April, featured the Season 2 of the much anticipated Survivor (Backpackers vs Loved Ones) and BP's Nickson and Isabel's legendary Mt. Guiting-Guiting Traverse in the Island of Romblon. And just last month of May, The Backpackers participated in a nationwide "Clean Up Drive" at Mt. Romelo.
