Hokkaido

Having a rather bumpy flight back from Sapporo to Tokyo while I’m typing this right now. Everyone else around me is fast asleep. It’s an early morning flight (we almost missed it) and I honestly had a good piece of mind to sleep too but after using my laptop for awhile, the announcement that we are arriving at Narita airport in 25mins time was made. So I decided to put my writing cap on and blog, finally something, for the longest time ever. Sometimes, I wonder… where’s my commitment to my precious blog. As much as I love blogging, truth is, I prefer travelling. And when I travel, sometimes I just have no time (or yes I am lazy?) to seat down and pen down my thoughts and reflect on each trip. You see, every time I seat down, it’s to plan the itinerary for the next day or even, the next trip. So yup! Planes rides are probably the best time to do so. Plus, thoughts are definitely fresh from my head since I just had the trip!

First time flying on Peach airlines, thankful for domestic airlines at a lower fare which makes travelling so much easier. Always very thankful for a safe flight regardless of how bumpy it gets. Safety is of utmost importance.

Anyways, back to the past week spent in Hokkaido, mainly Sapporo and some day trips out of the city.  In Hokkaido, it is best to drive, do a roadtrip or something. In fact, roads are wide, traffic is not conjested; it’s a great place for a road trip. I love road trips, reason being it lets me stop by anywhere I wish, like if I drive pass a scenic route or a very beautiful photo-worthy spot, I can just simply stop the car by the road side and snap a picture! Sadly, for this trip, it was just the two of us so we didn’t choose to drive. Well, on hindsight, it’s a good thing because now I can share with you how to get to the places with public transport! Well, it’s an alternative (and probably cheaper) way to get by… J

Highlights of Hokkaido:

Blue Pond

Travelling to Hokkaido May is probably the wrong season, yes it’s less crowded, non-peak, great and all, but it’s not the season for seeing the attractions I wanted to see. We decided to give Farm Tomita a miss, no rainbow flower fields and all, reason being the flowers only bloom in late June-July period, so yes, it will probably be a barren land if we visit it. And since, it was quite out of the way, with a sunken heart yet practical mind, yup lets not go. On this note, it made me want to come back again in July (but we’ll see about it, hahaha, I want to, BUT there’s so many other places to explore!). The statement of “so many things to see, so little time”, is very true.

Till then,
Toodles!
