Cebu Pacific’s Juan for Fun Backpacker Challenge 2014 Kicks Off

Gotta give it to these youngsters. I can feel the energy, the zest and the thirst for adventure to the five teams participating for this year’s Cebu Pacific Juan For Fun Backpacker’s Challenge. We got to see them on their official send-off yesterday at Resorts World Manila as they fly to Malaysia, Juan For Fun’s first international destination. It’s their first stop as they head back to Manila then on to exciting stops at Legaspi, Cebu, Camiguin, Cagayan de Oro and Davao for nine days all for free! Isn’t it exciting? ALong the way, they would be guided by their adventure coaches Paolo Abrera, Gretchen Ho, Jude Bacalso, Bogart the Explorer and Luke Landrigan. Let’s get a quick look at the teams.

CEB Smile | Siquijor’s Bewitching Spell Photos

Yes I miss Siquijor. It’s one of the first few islands I visited in the Visayas region and until now I yearn to go back and be enchanted again. For the meantime, check out some of my photos on the November 2013 issue of Cebu Pacific’s Smile Magazine inflight. Just looking at those photos makes me want to go back and see what has changed throughout the years.

Dispatch | Return to Camiguin via Cebu Pacific Air

It was more than 5 years ago when I last set foot at the “Island Borne of Fire”, commonly known as Camiguin. When Cebu Pacific Air invited a few bloggers for a familiarization tour of the island, I was glad to be included. It was an opportune time to see what has changed through out the years. Cebu Pacific Air launched their Camiguin flights from their Cebu Hub last April 15, 2013. This familiarization tour of the island hopes to promote the island’s tourism and awareness of the easy flight access to the Camiguin via Cebu Pacific Air.

If you are flying CEB anytime these months, check out the magazine and flip over to the Trip Journal section where you could see a couple of my photos used on the opener (The Balobok Rock Shelter) and the destination guide (Pagasinan Shipbuilding) respectively.
