First Star to the Right and … Over the Great Barrier Reef?

Wouldn’t it be nice to see a stewardess briefly move both hands in a forward motion, sideways, and give some more instructions in that calming voice?

Explore from Home via These Virtual Tours

For most of us, going out and about has been restricted to going out for essential purposes only, such as going to the grocery store, the bank, or maybe the pharmacy. Many countries have imposed travel bans or even required taking a CoViD-19 test with “Negative” as a result. For some, two negative results are needed. You might be thinking, “Why even travel out of the US at all right now?” and you’re right! There are lots to see around the United States of America! However, that doesn’t change the fact that travel is still restricted, even for domestic travel. In addition, you can’t argue that staying at home will always be safer. Still, if you need to scratch that travel itch, you can do so from the comfort of your own homes! I am not talking about high-level imagination here, I am talking about virtual tours! That’s right, there are museums, landmarks, theme parks, hotels, and even outer space venues that you can visit via the internet. It only takes a few clicks to …

Here’s Why Glamping is the Way to Go

Glamping is the easy combination of the two words that define it—glamorous camping. And it is what it is; it is a modern version of traditional camping, but with less hassle. With glamping, you get to enjoy the beautiful outdoors, which is definitely good for the brain. Spending time outdoors also boosts your mood and improves your health. In addition to this, here are more reasons why glamping is good for you: #1 It’s relaxing This is the main difference between traditional camping and glamping. When you go glamping, you can sleep on a real bed—far more comfortable than sleeping on the ground, asking your body to follow the shape of your tent. On top of this, let’s not forget about real bathrooms. Though some might say that it’s not a big deal, most people would prefer to do their business in actual bathrooms. For most people, the less than ideal setup of a camper’s bathroom is a turn off and is the reason why they dislike the idea of camping. Finally, a big plus …

Kawa Hot Baths Are Hot Right Now

It’s almost summer and Kawa Hot Baths will only make this season hotter! Locally translated, “kawa” refers to a large flat cooking pan that slightly resembles a wok. Kawa Hot Baths are tourist attractions found in the Philippines, where you, as the name implies, bathe in a kawa. And yes, that’s while the kawa sits on fire. How hot is hot? Taking kawa hot baths are like taking a dip in hot springs–you need to make sure that your body is ready for it. Because the heating mechanism is through direct contact with fire, the temperature will rise gradually. Ideally, the water should be near as warm as our normal body temperature, that’s 37 degrees Celsius. But the range is typically from 36 to 40 degrees Celsius. And just like our regular baths, we need to let our body gently get a feel of the water first before quickly jumping into it. Why get into the trend? Aside from taking those nice, perfectly instagrammable photos, getting into a kawa hot bath gives additional benefits. It …

Hot Air Balloon Fest 2020: Back and Near the Metro

Twenty-six years ago, Philippines’ very first hot air balloon festival was held in Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga. Since then, the iconic festival has been celebrated annually every second week of February, except for 2019. Last year, the hot air balloon festival, titled “A Weekend of Everything That Flies” was canceled due to issues with coordination with their partners in the government. When & Where?This year, the Philippine Hot Air Balloon Fiesta announced that the event will push through and because “it’s a new year, it’s a new venue” as they posted on their website. This year’s hot air balloon fest will be held on March 6 to 8, at San Lazaro Leisure Park in Carmona, Cavite. This year, the event that the organizers called the “Flying Carnival 2020” will be a weekend of ALMOST everything that files. Aside from the traditional showcase of hot air balloons of different sizes and shapes, you get to check out bazaars that offer food and various gift items and even attend seminars on aviation for three whole days. Of …

New Kart Racing Track Opens in Porac, Pampanga

Branching from the same company that opened Urban CityKart Racing in Makati, the Pampanga International Circuit, City Kart Racing officially opened its gates to enthusiasts and travelers last November 30, 2019–that’s two years after its planning and design started. As an upgrade of the track in Makati, the Pampanga International Circuit is said to be longer and more exciting. It also features five very exciting layouts, with the longest one stretching to 1.4 kilometers. The Pampanga International Circuit blasted their opening last weekend with back-to-back events starting with the Rotax Philippines 2019 Invitational followed by the 12-Hour Sodi W Series Endurance Race–two of the biggest karting championships in the world. If you’re looking for an exhilarating activity after long hours of hard work, a drive away from the Metro and into this race track is definitely the way to go. The Pampanga International Circuit is open from Tuesday to Thursday from 12:00PM to 5:00PM and Friday to Sunday from 10:00AM to 5:00PM.
