Bring the Spring!
Ever so slowly, spring is revealing itself in Hokkaido. The snow has almost completely melted in the city, crocuses are pushing through the thawing ground, and I can ride my bike without wearing gloves:) With eight days off for Golden Week, I`m looking forward to kicking back and spending some time outdoors, without snow. But where to go? Atsuma for some surfing? Into the mountains for some hiking? Down to the river for some bbqing? One thing is for sure, I`m going to spend a day doing some spring cleaning in my apartment – open up the veranda doors, let in some fresh air, mop the floors, dust the place down and prepare the veranda for a garden. January may ring in the new year, but May is the time to change lifestyle a bit and freshen up! So there you go: today`s word is Fresh. Be fresh, everybody. Be FRESHHHHHHHH.
