finally done with editing bulk of the photos! phewwwww. more snapshots of the trip:
good morning, sapporo.
sights on the go.
lake akan, lake mashu, and the awesome ice-breaking cruise.
hello, urban tokyo.
all bundled up in the subzero temperatures.
second time to tokyo but without dad being the usual guide, it was harder than expected 'cos the freaking train lines are so complicated. managed to get by with my smattering of japanese, otearai wa doko desuka? kore wa ikura desuka? and a trusty edition of lonely planet. will surely return to japan in the next few years to explore kyoto and osaka - time to keep my travel fund in check. seriously missing the days when i got free air tickets every single year :((((( i've been lucky enough to have travelled more than most of my peers - paris, new york, las vegas, los angeles, prague, germany, austria, korea, china, switzerland, budapest, vietnam, cambodia, vienna, new zealand, canada, thailand, thailand, thailand, thailand, thailand - so i shan't complain. am still itching to check out nepal, scandinavia, spain, greece, south africa and london oh london... think i might just go bankrupt paying for trips outta this little red dot and die an old lady with loads of vacay memories and photos to bury me with.
the boy wants italy to be our next stop but we'll see.
let's see where my wanderlust takes me ;)
