Long distance relationships suck. But, you can make one work if you really want it to. You will most likely hear the majority of people tell you, "it won't last" or "it'll never work." But, I promise you that if you really love one another, and are willing to put in the work, you can make it last.
Spring is here! The sun is shining, it's finally getting warm, and the flowers are blooming! I know the start of this post sounds like I really enjoy spring, but the truth is, I hate it. Every time someone asks, "what's your favorite season?" almost everyone says spring. Personally, I can't seem to understand why. Yes, the flowers are beautiful, but what the flowers bring with them, I hate. The pollen is outrageous and like a lot of people, I'm allergic. I can't breathe and my eye itch so bad they end up swelling so bad I can't see anymore. Not to mention all the bugs that start coming out during this time!
Travelling has to be one of the most exciting things I have done. There are endless possibilities; beautiful places to explore, delicious new foods to try, and incredibly fun activities to endure. However, when it comes to traveling the world as intensely as Nick and I plan to, health and fitness are more important than one may think.
Like everything else I've talked about on here, I was extremely excited to see the Snow Monkeys. But, who wouldn't be excited to see monkeys? They're definitely one of my favorite animals. And if you ever plan a trip to Japan this has to be on the top of list of things to do. Of course, it's not all about the monkeys, it's also important to know the best places to stay.
The amazing country of Japan offers many different festivals throughout the year. The Sapporo Snow Festival is one. Looking up the festival online, we read many great things. However, we weren't exactly sure what we were getting ourselves into. We knew there were snow and ice sculptures, but that about all that we knew about. We had no idea what kind of treat we were in for.
