Canada

I spend 10 days in Canada in the beginning of Janually. I was on my winter vacation, but it was a kind of professional training at a University in Burnaby, Canada.
The weather wasn't actually pleasant with lots of snow and the terrible coldness. My hosfamily said that I brought the blizzard from Sapporo to there・・・don't blame me on that!
I expected that it would be warmer in the west part of Canada! Because of the abnormal weather, the traffic was out and I had to wait for a bus to come patiently for a long, everyday. Apart from the fact that it was freezing, I had a great experience with my hostfamily and the people that I met in the training.
Moreover, it was one year after the last time I traveled abroad, I realized that I need that. It felt like that I could take a deep breath and refresh myself.

And I've got lovely friends there, they are two girls of my hostfamily.

When I showed them a little magic, their cute big eyes were bright and became bigger, hahaha.

Ahhh, I miss them sooooooo much♪

I try to put more pictures of Canada and my thoughts about it soon.

Hakodate

This is a night view of the best 3 in the world, which rivals Hong Kong and Italy. I was standing on the top of Mt. Hakodate located in the southern part of Hokkaido. It was amazingly beautiful landscape of the shoreline in the clear air, which means it was freezing for real!

Pink

What is your favorite color?
Mine is .....don't know, I like black, yellow, orange, green, peacock blue etc.
then, I've realized that pink is the color that always lightens up me.
A few weeks ago, I got a small bouquet of flowers.
There is something that makes me feel so good more than the color, which is the smell of lilies.
It is a bit strong, but when I get back to my room and see the color of pink, sense the great smell, I get into the sprit.

The Season have ways of repeating themselves.
Appreciating red leaves tells you that autumn has come and that winter is just around the corner in Hokkaido!
What's worring me is ・・・・bottomless appetite --;

a precious day

Yesterday was my father's birthday. My family has been celebrating the day even since he died 6 years ago. To tell the truth, his birthday is much more important for us than the day he passed away. One day in November when he's gone is rather the day that I don't want to remember, or that I still feel he is away on a business trip or something.

This pic was taken just 2 weeks before his last birthday, and became the last pic that my dad and mom were together in.

It happened to be taken in front of the sunflower field.

In the lanuage of the flowers, sunflower signifies,

・・・・・・Well be thinking of you forever

I've always believed that he's watched over and will watch over me.

Ads

I guess, you observe this kind of ads along country roads in Hokkadio. It says there are organic vegetables here. You can get fresh chemical-free vegetables at a cheaper price.

Sometimes, nobody is at a stall, instead there must be a fare box to drop the money into !

So, I really recomend, you should stop by a vege stall if you see this ad!

Summer has come!!

It's been hot hot hot hot!! here in Sapporo, Hokkaido, these days. I'm exhausted(--;), however, how can you stay at home in such sunny days? Above all, I'm on a vacation, Yeahhhhh!

Did you know that you can enjoy lavender in Sapporo? and you can have a great view of Sapporo there, too! It's called "Horomi To-ge 幌見峠", a mountain path in the western part of the city.

Lavender is very famous plant grown up in Furano, which can bring thousands and thousands of people to see the wonderful, huge, beautiful field of lavender. I couldn't be bothered to drive from Sapporo to Furano for about 3 hours, but I desperated to shot pics of lavender!

I rushed to there after I heard about the path. I couldn't stop taking pics of the lovely scented flower in the bush, along with bees. My friend gave me chilly eye,,,,,gosh! I can't believe there are people who don't appreciate such beautiful nature.
