Juan For Fun Backpacker Challenge 2016 Winners


For three years, I had been wanting to join Juan For Fun Backpacker Challenge but because of how demanding a schedule of a quartem school requires, I can’t have the luxury of joining the adventure and even form a group of 3 for this epic adventure with Cebu Pacific. But this year, I got to witness these adventurers who got the chance to roam around the country’s beautiful spots for 7 days. Yes, envy just hit me. But, hey, Juan For Fun Backpacker Challenge is an amazing adventure that every adventurers been dreaming to join.


For seven days, five different teams from different universities all around the Philippines traveled to stunning and must-visit destinations in the country and conquered as many awesome adventures that Philippines has to offer with a budget of 35,000 PHP. One team had the best adventure around the Philippines and enjoyed it for seven days and hailed as the winner of Juan For Fun Backpacker Challenge 2016. The team #JFFJUANTeamPH is from Bacolod City and students of La Salle Bacolod. They were guided by their adventure coach, TV host and VJ Robi Domingo. The team kicked things off in Iloilo, the Festival Capital of the Philippines, before making their way to Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Surigao, and Butuan. Their final stop is in Mt. Mayon in Legazpi, Albay. The team members were Glenn Layola, Audrey Ramos, and John Ray Blance. Kudos to this team for winning the epic prize of the Juan For Fun Backpacker Challenge – a Travel-all-you-can pass. This entitles each member to as many free flights to domestic and international shor-haul destinations as they want within one year. They will also get gift certificates from Tripologie travel store, Merrell shoes and Boreas travel bags.

Both #JFFTEAMTAG (Tricia Quintero, April Baldovino, and Gian Nicdao) and #JFFTEAMPABLO (Brendan Tangan, Linus Pagulayan and Cherson Bariuan) got the last spot of the whole challenge. They were both guided by Saab Magalona and Champ Lui Pio. I think getting the last place of this epic backpacker challenge is nothing compare to the experiences and moments they had through the whole adventure.

The Cebu Paciic Juan For Fun Backpacker Challenge 2016 has Boreas Gear as the official travel gear, Merrell as the official footwear and GoPro as the official camera. The challenge was also supported by Wenger and Dan’s, and endorse by the Department of Tourism and Commission on Higher Education.
