Hot Air Balloon at Pampanga

Yes, hot air balloon is very safe and we have a 100% safety record. That is the question that poppoed on our mind when we were on our way to Clark Air Field, Pampanga one Saturday morning.

So how does hot air balloning works? Up to 4 adults can fit in the basket. Today balloons are used primarily for two purposes, sport or scientific research. Most balloons are from 60,000 cubic feet to 140,000 cubic feet. However, some are small enough to fly from a harness on your back and some are capable of flying 16 people or more. Most balloons tower from 60' to 90' tall.  Baskets or gondolas are made from wicker with a weave similar to your household wicker furniture. They are reinforced with metal tubes or aircraft cables and a wood floorboard. The wicker weave is what gives a balloon it's strength and flexibility at landing. On September 19, 1783, a sheep, a duck, and a rooster become the first passengers in a hot air balloon launched by the Montgolfier brothers, Joseph and Ettienne for a royal demonstration at the court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

Kalibo Airport

Kalibo Airport is the larger airport funneling traffic to and from Boracay Island. The planes coming in and out of the Kalibo airport are larger Boeing 737 jumbo jets. Kalibo is a small town on Panay Island, and Aklan Province in the southern Visayas Region of the Philippines.

Many foreign visitors traveling to Boracay from Manila choose this route because of its scenic beauty. Traveling through the Philippines countryside from Kalibo to Caticlan is an opportunity to see some of the local provinces and how the native Filipino people live. From Manila to Kalibo Airport on Panay Island flying by Philippines Airlines, the flight time from take off to the landing, is only 40 minutes, so by the time you arrive in Boracay you are fresh and not jet lagged.

Blood Compact

Anawangin Cove

Anawangin Cove is a crescent shaped cove with a pristine white sand beach. What makes the place unique is the unusual riddle of tall pine trees flourishing round its vicinity. There are no roads leading to Anawangin. It is only accessible by a 30 minute boat ride from Pundaquit, San Antonio, Zambales or by a six-hour trek through hot, open trails thru the Pundaquit range. The cove's relative isolation has kept it free from development as of this writing, there are no resorts on this sparkling piece of natural beauty, save for a few huts and deep wells.

Just behind the beach is the pine forest and a marsh, where one can find natural springs feeding to the sea. The area is home to a number of bird species.
