My airbnb place was located in a school area and it was refreshing to be surrounded by Japanese teenagers / university students. Somehow, it made me miss my school days!

Kaila in Hokkaido Day 1: My First AIRBNB Experience + Burger Day

Hello everyone!

For tonight, I’m going to share my first day in Sapporo! 🙂

Days before the trip, I already prepared the things I would bring for my quick vacation. Actually, I was having second thoughts if I should have a checked-in luggage or not. After contemplating about it, I decided to just have a checked-in baggage (additional 1,000 JPY+) to my Peach airfare. Having all the important things with me rather than purchasing the same necessities in Hokkaido was the most practical option. Whenever I travel, I tend to bring a lot because my girly needs / body hygiene stuff are #priorities hahaha.

Kaila in Hokkaido

It’s been a week or so since my Hokkaido dream (it felt like I was in my own dream the whole time huhu)… and I’m missing it very much. I have realized a lot of important things about myself during this trip. Work and side projects really kept me busy for so many months and I already reached the point where I was just so exhausted and uninspired.. and my soul was craving to just take a break and go solo travel somewhere.
