It was a travelling day today! Up at 6, breakfast at 6:30, left the hotel by 6:45. Took the subway to get to the airport bus, and took the bus to Narita. Easy check-in, though I might have cut it a bit fine. Napped on the plane, instead of updating this like I was planning. By the time I opened the window again, there was snow!
It was at this point, unlike all the other times when I told Japanese people I was heading to Sapporo and they got a ??? look on their face, that I started to feel like I had made a mistake. What was I doing in Sapporo in winter, with no winter clothes and canvas shoes?? But hey, she’ll be right. I’ll figure it out.
Getting a bus to the hostel was a little stressful, but I figured it out. You’d think snow is lovely and romantic until it’s dirty and the footpaths are frozen over and you’re dragging a canvas suitcase through frozen roads with canvas shoes. It kinda stops being fun then. The hostel itself was actually quite nice. Lovely top floor. I relaxed and call family. It gets dark here by 4, so I took the evening to relax and explore the area a little.
Was really smart and took a glass of water into the bunk. Managed to spill it everywhere so was very smart. Dried everything out before bed though.
Lazy evening. Short day but there you go.
