Friday, March 18, 2016 jeffrey siy 0 Comments

Adventure is calling all travelers in Wrangler's Search For True Wanderers contest. In partnership with the Department of Tourism, Wrangler is looking for motorcycle riders fueled by passion to explore our country's hidden gems. To join, log on to Wrangler contest website and register. Select only one (1) of five (5) pre-determined passions: Adventure, Food, Photography, Backpacking or Nature. In 250 words or less, explain what drives your passion to explore the open road. Include a photo of you and your motorbike. All submitted entries will be shortlisted to fifty (50) to answer a questionnaire. From there, a panel of biking experts and travel enthusiasts will screen the answers and select ten (10) finalists. These finalists will undergo a five (5)-day motorcycle ride in a pre-selected city in the country chosen by Wrangler and the Department of Tourism. Each day, you will be assigned an activity which you should complete. Aside from that, you must update your blog daily with topics focusing on your route, challenges, places visited, food you tried, music you listened to, people you met, sights seen, places stayed, difficulty of ride, things you learned, etc. You should also update your personal social media accounts (Facebook/Twitter/Instagram) and use the Wrangler gear to be provided during the send-off event. Encourage your friends to follow your blog to increase social fuel. Only one (1) true wanderer will ride away a Royal Enfield Chrome Black 500cc and P100,000 of Wrangler products.
