Hot Air Balloon Festival 2011 Escapade

I wrote it on my previous entry that I will be going to Clark, Pampanga for the Hot Air Balloon Festival. Check entry here...and yes, I finally conquered Pampanga!!!

Last February 11, we took off from Cebu for Clark and first step foot in Pampanga at around 7:00 pm. We stayed at Marco's place where his grandparents welcome us with sumptuous food. I never experienced hunger in that house even for a second. Thank you for the warm welcome!

We tried to sleep early for tomorrow's big day.

Thank God, I always have the instinct of waking up early once I know that I have an event that I needed to attend too, especially that it will be my first time. I woke up around 4:30 am and prepared myself for the great day ahead us.

We were just in time where balloons are being inflated and here are some of the photos:

There were also aircraft and sky diving exhibitions which I totally enjoyed.

In addition, we also tried flying a kite which was pretty hard, but we did it. Our kite flew and soar high!

It was a worthwhile experience and I'm hoping to experience it again on 2012. I will soon post the details of my Angeles-Manila Trip.
