A pleasant sight at 6am.—- I wish to open up my window in the daylight for this view everyday.
#Day 2: Virgin SKII-ers.
As mentioned in my previous post, I lived in a pretty luxurious apartment named, Shinsetsu.
Seriously, life here will be great. Boring as it seems, but there was a hell loads of leisure activities available. Not to forget, ultimate relaxation and spa one could yearn for.– Soaking in the hot onsen in a cold, snowy weather. Now, that is indeed life in paradise.
The trail that we walk out of Shinsetsu to the mart and around the village.
And just outside this wooden cottage, lies a pile or rather, a pool of powder snow.
Ever since I was a child, living in a one season country makes me desire for a day to see what makes christmas a jolly season.— Snow.
Just like all kids on TV shows, they played Snowball fights, makes Snow angels and also, their very own SNOWMAN.
I want to do all that! And I am proud to say, Yes. I did it.
I’ve waited 20 years of life to finally chance upon this magical season. Dreams do come true.
So, here I am, standing alone on the walking trail at the time of 8am. I couldn’t sleep at all since the last night. Not that I am scared or nervous, but more of the fact that I am too excited and I can’t wait to turn myself into a 3 years old kid to play in the snow.
Ski lessons only starts in the afternoon but already wide awake and ready for the day of excitement and fun!
After 30 mins, I build my own snowman. Because there wasn’t any props around except those lying sticks on the ground. The facial expression of my snowman turns out like this. (see image below).
Well, it’s pretty cute isn’t it? >.<
OH! Have I forgot to mention that winter is also the best season because it makes your skin flawless! I swear I was on minimal make up only and my face still looks damn clean and fresh.
Attempting to feel snow in my face as it was snowing non-stop again.
Caution: Selfie Spam below, can’t help it, but my skin really look so damn good! Flawless!
Crazy it may sound, but I love falling down, especially onto these powder white snow.
Lying down on the snow like an idiot, ignoring all the weird stares from passer-bys, I am trying to form my snow angels.
Whee~ I was having so much fun just by lying on them.
My ‘sad’ face because annoying Jason keep pushing me down.
It’s snowing! snowing! Just had to snap a picture before these beautiful sight are gone!
One of this best trip was to spot this lovely snow dog. It is so friendly and it lives in the Australian house— that explains why it is so friendly since his owners are too!
The ‘struggling’ stroll up the mountain and renting of skiis and boots took an hour plus before leading us to this magnificent snow mountain!
Because we took an hour to reach the mountain, we were late for our ski lesson but our instructor was so nice to allow us to extend the time. He is from England. Amazing man, he only lives during the winter season with snow. — What does this mean? He travels to different countries for snow throughout the year to teach and to live. Amazing.
Snow flakes falling from the sky again!
And so, to end this tiring yet exciting day, a group photo! Of course!
Ski, one of my favourite sport. For a first timer, I can proudly say I do ski pretty well! Even tho, the boots are heavy and seriously challenging my leg muscles, but still, it’s worth the muscle ache and pains for this wonderful experience. Marked vividly in my mind.
Maybe I should be a Ski instructor one day and just live in the winter season… Idea? ^^
