So late in July, T-chan left Australia - for an unknown amount of time... so that she could apply to the Australian government to get married with the man she loved. It was a strange departure at Adelaide airport - and one I'd not like to have to do again.
Meanwhile I was stuck here in Adelaide. Wondering what was going to happen. Our lives had been constantly changing - evolving - but now our future was in the hands of someone else. Not to mention that immigration is not a cheap business either.
Our plan was that I would travel to Japan in October and would wait there until we got our visa. I'm not sure what would have happened after 3 months (the normal tourist visa period...) Luckily we didn't need to find out as the visa came through in late September.
No matter what however - this second trip would be a far different affair to the whirlwind that was the first trip. As such, I won't do a daily coverage, but will walk through some of the highlights of Sapporo and Hokkaido.
At this time - still not envisaging that I would be blogging this 6.5 years later, I missed many opportunities to take photos of the everyday things. Gomen nasai! ? : ` )
