Planning For Our First Winter Snow Vacation

Wow, first of all, my apology for disappearing for close to a month after my last post. I have been SO busy with works and Edison’s mid-year exam. Finally, his exam is over and I realised one month has passed so quickly. They say time flies when you’re having fun, but nope, it’s not exactly true. It still flies regardless of the fun factor…  😆

So, we decided to go for a snow vacation in December this year. But where to? We had two ideas in mind – Seoul and Hokkaido. 😀

Honestly, that’s the last thing on my mind. As much as possible, I want to travel on free and easy. On the other hand, Seoul is a lot easier as we’ve been there two years ago. And now with Trazy, we don’t have to worry at all! 😀

The decision process swings back and forth between these two places. And finally, we picked
