We traveled to Hakuba to learn how to snowboard it was Chris’ second time and my first time. Lucky we were with Chris’s step-brother Jonnie who was previously an instructor and could help us out. We started on the steepest of the three beginner slopes. I took a few good falls but couldn’t get up the normal way.

Toyko – Matsumoto, Nagano
We traveled 3 hours on the bus with the greatest view and experience of seeing Japan from the city to the country. We spent an hour/ish surrounded by tall buildings that represent the city then slowly it got less houses and more spaces like farm land mountains then into small villages scattered every where and lots of grave yards. The further we went the colder it got and snow covered everything like mountains, house roofs and land. And we stay here for a month with Chris’ dad.
When riding a bike in Japan, you don’t have to wear a helmet. There is the same amount of bikes as there are cars on the road. In the city there are way more people walking then driving.
