After just under 24 hours traveling by car, train, plane, bus and taxi, we arrived in Hakodate, Japan, where we boarded the good ship The World for 4 weeks of pampering :). It was good to be back on board. Our first days where spent mainly relaxing.

Stephen hiked up the local hill with a small group from the The World. The viewpoint afforded nice views of the city. Later that night TW sailed onto Otaru where we docked in the morning of the 25th. From here we would set off for the Main Event: ‘The Sea of Okhotsk Expedition’.

Hilde arrived and joined us and Peter for a drink and a sushi dinner. There was still enough time for the ladies to shop for shoes. Tricia also arrived, but too late for us to see her. We spent the day walking and walking and walking around town. We found an excellent place for lunchtime sushi.
