Day 7 – Furano

P1050569

We woke up nice and early to rain. I love rain but, kind of makes it annoying on travels. So we went to the local convenience store ‘combini’ Lawson and bought some umbrellas. Then we headed off, it was about a 2 hours drive today to Furano. On the way we stopped for a toilet […]

Day 4 – Jozan & Otaru

P1050193

Morning view from my hotel room. Absolutely stunning. I had to take another photo before we went into the hot springs again for our morning shower. Then we had breakfast and headed off to go to Jozan. On the way we stopped by a observatory area where we were once again eclipsed by the cerulean […]

Day 5 – Otaru

P1050204

  In Otaru we enjoyed the many streets filled with boutique shops of music boxes, glass and crystal crafts and pastries. I finally got sucked into consumerism and splurged on these beautiful stained glass frames, trays, plate, vases, kerosene lamps etc. I also bought some biscuit delicacies and some simple coaster woodwork. I’m so sorry […]

Day 3 – Toyako, Hokkaido

P10409011

  Woke up to a spectacular view of Hakodate train station.. normally it wouldn’t be such a sight but I think the flatness of the land made it look appealing. And those flowers, those fuchsia pink flowers.   Before we left the sleepy port town, we stopped by at Goryokaku – a pentagon tower within […]

Day 2 – Hakodate, Hokkaido

P1040767

We arose at a ghastly 5 am to get to Haneda airport. From here we were headed to the town on the southern peninsula on Hokkaido Island. We flew with Japan Airlines which had great service. It’s interesting how much faster the airport process was just because of their heavy use of technology. We are […]

Day 1 – Tokyo

P1040528

Flight sucked. I struggled to sleep and didn’t catch a wink the night before. Mum and I sat apart with a lovely Brazillian girl in between us. She loved a chat but unfortunately, I was way too exhausted to channel my mind so I palmed her off to my mum. I don’t think my mum […]

So the other day a friend of mine was so kind to try and introduce me online to his event manager friend in the music industry. Before a conversation could even begin, she snubbed my hello, wrote “Alrighty” and left the conversation. Then, without even meeting me or knowing anything about me, she went on […]

GOMA

I had a lovely day yesterday. I started my day working my first day at Nightlife Music (digital advertising/music firm) as a marketing assistant. I met the 90+ staff there which was absolutely daunting but got settled right into their friendly work culture. I then had to do the scary task of catching my very […]
