>2011 is starting out on a great note for this fledgling travel blogger wannabe.
In about three weeks from now, I get the chance to see Japan blanketed in snow. And where better to see the whitest of white landscapes than in Sapporo, Hokkaido?
I am bracing myself for temperatures of -4deg Celcius! And lots of fresh seafood from the icy northern waters, steamy hot onsen in the white hush of winter and a chance or two to take a tumble down a ski slope! I will be in the company of other journalists, and once more, travelling solo sans the family.
Thus far I’ve seen Japan in her glorious crimson hues of autumn, in the verdant green of late spring and now’s my chance to see her clad in white – just before my next date with her in spring where KH and I will see the transient yet delicately pale hues of sakura in full bloom.
I’m looking forward to this! I hope 2011 will be a year when my passport gets filled up and my bags remain constantly packed. Japan aside, we are already logging in dates in 2011’s calendar for another Tioman reunion, or possibly Brisbane when Cait goes over for gym training. We’ll see.
And as usual, I will be writing, logging in my experiences (slowly but surely – yes I’ll get there!) in these pages.
