Imaginary Vacation Friday

Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route (立山黒部アルペンルート ) located in high altitude of more than 3000 metres is my "must" vacation before I turn fifty years old. Only operating for about 7 months a year from Mid April to End November and nothing much to rave about the old fashioned Hotel Tateyama.

What attract many people is that this place is located at the highest point in Japan. The panoramic view of the 3000 meter mountains at the hotel rooftop, at night where the stardust is almost seems to be within reach and Yuki-no-Otani (Snow Corridor) of about 17 metre nearby the hotel and many more beautiful views throughout the seasons, I wonder what am I waiting for ?

If you're looking for the earliest to see autumn leaves and snowing then visit Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route, then make sure you plan in advance and bring the necessary for an enjoyable trip.

Colors Monday

APAK consists of husband and wife collaborative art team Aaron and Ayumi Piland creating artwork since 2005 in the outskirts of Portland, Oregon. I love how their colorful childlike artworks of utopian lives and adventures of curious little beings living in lush fantastic environments surrounded by friendly little animals.

There are many other beautiful items in their etsy shop great for Christmas gifts, Happy Shopping !
