It's me first trip to Hokkaido but not for the Baker-at-Home. And me and the cold, well, we don't get along that good. Never have and never will. Anyway, more on that in another post. Back to the ice-cream, much preferred the Strawberry White Chocolate than mochi red bean. Nice bold strawberry flavours in that little tub. Had some Haagen-Dazs mochi ice-cream too last year, still not exactly sold on them.
So the temperature in Hokkaido dropped to below zero degrees celsius everyday while we were there, ice everywhere and I mean ICE, not soft fluffy snow but bone-breaking rock hard ice! I believe I spent more time stopping myself from falling face first into the ice than enjoying the sights. But no real complaints. Away from the familiar hustle and body-crashing Tokyo crowds, this here rural and country living vacation was a welcome change.
