Ski rental in Niseko, Japan

I visited Niseko in December 2015

It was already almost 1pm, if we wanted to get some skiing done we had to get ready quickly. The people we were meeting in Niseko were already on the slopes, we would meet them after skiing. I needed to rent everything, all I had for this trip was long underwear. There were many places renting equipment in Niseko I had been told.

Spring has come to Östersund

I visited Östersund and witnessed its spring bloom in May 2015

Today we went to Storsjöbadet, an aqua park just outside Östersund. Instead of tking the bus there, we decidd to walk along the lake. It was a beautiful day, flowers started to appear on the forest floor. I did not mind we got lost and took a five kilometer long detour.

Here are some pictures from our walk today. As we walkdthrough th forest, the ground was covered in beautiful flowers. It seems that spring finally has come to Östersund.

The Countryside in Bosnia

I visited Bosnia in March 2015

Taking the bus from Sarajevo to Mostar gave me a chance to see some of Bosnia’s nature. Its mountains, rivers, valleys and villages. The Bosnian countryside really is beautiful. We rode through quaint little villages, over beautiful fields, over steep mountain passes and along scenic valleys. The bus ride took a few hours giving me plenty of time to enjoy the view.

I took the bus from Sarajevo in the morning, arriving at Mostar in time for lunch. On the way to Mostar it was plenty of space on the bus. On the return journey it was packed.

Most of my time was spent staring out the window, the views were magnificent. Wishing I could kep them forever, I kept snapping pictures, but it is just not the same. Next time I want to rent a car and drive through the country, giving me a chance to stop at some of the places.

Here are some pictures from my ride.
