a The Transit Lounge: Sayonara 2009

Back in the Day: I had a quarter life crisis, headed to Osaka, Japan for the unknown–only to discover that a passport plane ride are not necessarily a ticket to escape. Some Years Later: Settled back in Oz, the man of my dreams ended up in Tokyo for work–which is how a passport and plane ride showed me home is where the heart is. And Now: Well as luck would have it, we are about to embark on Japan Mark 3, with a baby in tow and another on the way...

Sayonara 2009

My last day of first the decade of this century has been spent skiing all over Happo-one, one of the ski fields of Hakuba in Nagano. It has been absolutely insane. Have a look:

At Happo-one station - temp started dropping!

Getting up the mountain.

I know, I know - we spoiled the picture. I'm not smiling and Ben blinked...Oh and it was about -15 celsius up here (about -26 with the wind chill!).

Powder, powder, powder...

...snow angel time!

The skiing has been phenomenal. It has been snowing for nearly 24 hours now and the powder is insane. Still here for another few days. Great way to see out the old year and celebrate the new.

Happy New Year everyone!!

Certainly looks awesome Miss Rizz! Most of our staff are on the ground in Hakuba at the moment and have said that it's spewing down with snow! Over a 3m base is unbelievable from what we receive in Oz each year!
