Hello again, Gerry here! I was very surprised when it snowed recently, but also very happy as I am looking forward to snowboarding again this winter. Last year was my first season so I hope to improve a lot this year. I spent most of my free time in October hiking, playing golf or relaxing in hot springs. Last weekend I hiked up Mount Moiwa. It was very beautiful with the autumn colours but I should have started earlier in the day. When I was coming down it was dark and scary-next time I`d better take a torch or start earlier! Hope you are looking forward to a Hokkaido winter! Bye for now.
The first snow!
For the last few weeks I have been asking students to “bet” when the first snow will fall in Sapporo. Last year the first snow fell on about November 20th. Because it was my first winter in Sapporo I remember the day well. I was very excited! This year I am not so excited because now I know how long and cold Sapporo’s winter is. Most students bet that the first snow would fall in the middle of November. I guessed it would happen on the 8th of November because it’s my sister’s birthday and I thought it would bring me good luck! So, I was very surprised when the first snow fell on October 26th! However, two of my students will be very happy because they guessed the right day. Congratulations Rumiko and Mieko!
A hot loong summer!
This summer my brother came to Japan with his friend and we had a great time! We rented a car and drove around in honshu for 2 weeks and even climbed Mt. Fuji! We were super tired at that time. But now afterwards I think it was worth it. I’m sad that the summer has ended now. Winters can be so cold in Sapporo. Well, see you!
A summer of camping and climbing!
The beautiful, hot weather this summer meant that ?hcould enjoy 2 of my favourite free time activities-camping and mountain climbing. I climbed several mountains in Hokkaido and saw some fantastic views, but the best (and biggest) was Mount Fuji. It took 6 hours to climb to the top and was very tiring, but it was worth it as ?hsaw the most amazing sunrise of my life. I felt like I was on top of the world! I also had a fun trip to Rebun island where I enjoyed camping, hiking and uni. Rebun is a very beautiful and relaxing place. I hope you all enjoyed the summer and are looking forward to a nice autumn and the leaves changing colour to stunning reds, oranges and yellows. Hokkaido really is a place of 4 seasons, and they are all great!
Back from Beijing.
I spent the Golden Week holiday in China, with my girlfriend. We stayed at a very nice hotel in Beijing (Peking) and did lots of sightseeing. We walked along the Great Wall, visited Tianomen Square and the Forbidden City and took a trip to the Summer Palace. We had an amazing time and would love to go back. It is nice to return to Sapporo though and find that spring and the cherry blossoms have arrived. I hope you all had a lovely Golden Week. I look forward to hearing about it!
