Heading to Hokkaido
This time tomorrow, we'll be plowing through the sea somewhere between Japan and North Korea. Sergey and I are taking the slow boat to Hokkaido to celebrate our birthdays in a part of the country neither of us has been to before.
Although we celebrate our birthdays on the same day (February 28), Sergey was actually born on February 29. He's a leap-year baby, which makes him seven and a half and makes me a pedophile.
We'll arrive in Hokkaido on Saturday night, after 20 hours at sea. We have no reservations, no plans and generally no clue what we'll do once we get there. It's all part of the fun. We want to be open to any adventure that comes our way, even if it means sleeping in a 24-hour McDonald's. We both just want to go for long walks, see what we see, and find what we find.
We'll be back next week.
