Weekend 20: March 19-20, 2022 Day 138: March 19, 2022 Saturday - Itinerary Making Day It's the start of the long weekend today as Monday is the Spring Equinox holiday here in Japan .  Here's my breakfast (and probably lunch too) for today I didn't go out today as I spent my day crafting an itinerary for my 2-Day Wakkanai Backpacking Trip on Sunday and Monday.  Making my 2-day Wakkanai Itinerary For my accommodation, I booked via Airbnb. I got a whole private lodging for myself for only 5693 yen. I also contacted the Filipino ALT of Wakkanai, Abhie to meet her and say hi to her when I visit (sort of a courtesy call).  I spent the remainder of the day preparing my stuff for the trip. In my downtime, I watched the suspense film Downrange on Netflix. After this, I chatted with my wife to inform her of my finalized plan before calling it a day.  Day 139: March 20, 2022 Sunday - Wakkanai Backpacking Day 1 This is it!

Weekend 19: March 12-13, 2022 Day 131: March 12, 2022 Saturday - Grocery Day  The sound of water dripping woke me up today. Thinking that there was a leak somewhere, I hurriedly got up and inspected the bedroom and living room only to find out that the sound was actually coming from the melting snow dripping on my metal railing.  I went to Rumoi's COOP to buy groceries.
