Back to the train station again

It is already day 10 for our Hokkaido trip posting. (Emm...) I guess I have not realize that until yesterday where the blog posting for Hokkaido is almost comes to an end soon. (Yeah almost to an end, and hope that everyone has not bored with all the photos as well as the crappy writing I have here) :"P Anyway, we spend most of our day 10 on buses. Yeah the bus services is call The Twinkle Bus.

More photos after the post...

The Twinkle Bus services is a tour bus that is provided by JR to bring you to multiple attractions that is in Furano. But one thing is that the time that it stop at some of the places of attraction is pretty short. (10-15minutes?) as well as sometimes it will just pass by some location without making a stop. so you will need to get your gear ready and start to hunt for the scenery you want when you got down from the bus. (So I will say that it is a good training on a pressure time line shoot out. ;"D - At least I take it that way) But, the bus will have a longer stop time when the location do have some shops (where the visitors can have their chances to go for the merchandise) the stopping time will be much longer (30-40 minutes). My advise is that, for those who would like to go for a longer walk on those flowers and scenery area, you all could rent a car (in 4-5 persons to share the car rental fees) then all of you will have the ample time to get the required best shots that you all wanted ;).

And lastly. our final stop for the day is another summer fest at Furano. I will say that it is superb! This is the first time I am so darn close to a firework show. (Alright, I am amaze by the show and didn't really made any shoots at all, haha. I just wanna stop at that moment sit there and relax, enjoying the fireworks show while the music is playing).

Anyway, It is getting closer and closer to the end of the trip. I bet I am getting myself more and more relax in this trip. :"P (and slowly reducing the photo taking exercise that is embedded within me). And I guess that's all I have for tonight folks. Hope that you all will enjoy it. Thanks. :)

  5. 唔唔,我很喜欢大自然,虽然花圃不完全是大自然,不过由花儿们组成的景色都是很美的~~

    那些草,我有点好奇,他们是怎么卷起来的?不懂我爸爸家后院的草是否也可以这样卷起来 :P 能的话,就省事了,又可以拿去喂牛,正好那边是马来 kampung,很多牛的 XD

  6. 嘻嘻,原来如此。:)希望您会喜欢了这一系列的照片喔。;)

    怎么卷,就不是很清楚了。不过,听说,要卷起来可要好多好多的草哦。不过,可以拿去喂牛也不错的。他们一定会很喜欢。:D哈哈。
