Hello everyone. I'm currently in Ibaraki and I'm about to head to the airport and then take a flight to Hokkaido. I'm so excited. I love Al Qaeda only ever been once before, so I'm really, really pumped to go and see it again. I'm going with charlotte who's just over there. She'll say hi in a little bit. Um, and if you hear any music there is a child playing a piano just over there before we're heading to Hokkaido. We've just come to stop at a place called Soriano Hockey or uh and it's just a place where you can chill out really close to the airport as you can hear from that plane earlier and there's restaurants and places for kids to play. It's just a really relaxing area. So if you just have a bit of time you need to kill before you catch a plane. It's a pretty good place to do it. We are catching a flight from Ibaraki to Hokkaido. This actually didn't used to be a flight path. I think they had to take a boat before. But now yeah, we can, we can fly from Ibaraki to Hokkaido which is super exciting. So we'll be going to new chitose airport and then we're going down to a place called Tomakomai. We actually have spent a lot of time at Ibaraki. So I already did a video about it. If you want to check out that video, follow the card up here or is it up here? I'm not sure. I can't tell direction. Super excited for Al Qaeda. I think we're gonna be staying in a log cabin, getting back in touch with nature, gonna be having a barbecue. I think it's just gonna be really serene and beautiful. So I'm excited. I forgot to bring a jacket because I'm an idiot. And let's go have fun time in Kolkata. Let's get, hey, so we're on the plane were just heading to Hokkaido. We haven't left yet. There's a nice little sunset happening outside. Good to go. Yeah, mm hmm. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah. Okay. Hey guys, we just got to our hotel that we're staying in for the night anyway. We're staying in a lot of cabin. It's gonna be awesome. But yeah, I'll give you two tomorrow. So I just wanted to say goodnight and I'll see you in the morning by, okay, Hey, good morning guys. It is the next day in Al Qaeda and I had a very lovely night in this wooden cabin before we get started with the day. I just wanted to give you a tour of the place that we stayed last night. We're staying at hotel night. Um, or Needham and I d o m so this place actually has a shared kitchen would be sharing it with one other room that's right here. So they have a fridge and freezer here and just like any wonderful hotel, They've stacked it full of beer and sake if you want it. But I think it's an extra cost. They have the prices up here and we have the solar kitchen at very cute, nice hot water. They also have some coffee and tea so it's good if you're feeling up for it. Also they have just a grill over there and also outside they have a barbecue. So very nice. I'm just going through here and here's our little humble abode. It's so cute in here. So we got to wake up with a view of the forest and it was super nice and we each had our own little bed to sleep in and then in here we have the bathroom. It's super nice in here, good bathroom. It's got a big bathtub, nice shower, lots of amenities of the day. All the good stuff that you need. So the lamps are so cute. Actually, Finest thing about the lamps is the one next to our bed. We control half of the lamp each. Usually in hotels you get like one lamp each and you can adjust it. But this one you get half a lamp. Okay? I think I'm gonna go get charlotte, we'll call a car to come and pick us up and take us to the main hall and then we'll get started with that day. Oh hi guys, I just came to breakfast and it's the most lavish and luxurious breakfast I've ever had. Why does even the carrot look fancy. But we have a al Qaeda melon and some warm bread and a salad and dressing and vegetable juice and milk and yogurt and cereal and butter and jam and and so much stuff. So uhh yeah, here we were. I think you were staying in a log cabin, going to be yellow camping camping up. But no, we're in luxury. I gotta try that. Al Qaeda melon, mm hours, wow, it was just like juice and then it was gone. It's really soft and melts in your mouth. That's pretty amazing. I don't even know where to begin to. Okay, usually I really don't like veggie juice. This is actually definitely drinkable, more than drinkable. It's enjoyable. I can't get this tiny cute little omelet and some sausages and bacon and also a cup of tea. Anyway, we're gonna eat this uh this meal and I will see you guys afterwards for the first activity of the day, which is something I don't know what it is. Yeah. Mhm. Mhm. Okay guys, we just got in the car and came all the way over here to lake you tonight and there's a shop here called me, you know where we're going to get some ingredients so we can have a good barbecue together. Yeah, so behind me is like Madonna which is so beautiful and it turns out it's only a meter deep at the deepest point. So I guess if you really wanted. Not sure how legal it is, but you could probably walk across the other side. This place is actually really well known for swans and white swans. But unfortunately there were some here earlier this morning, but they flew away. Oh, uh huh. So in meeting right now and I thought it would just be like vegetables and produce. But there's actually a lot to buy here. It's kind of like a Al Qaeda Tourism store, Tomakomai Tourism store. There's so many random wooden things here. This whole wooden motorcycle going to get on it. I feel like I hear people get on, it's super creepy. Wait, it needs a little oil and wait, why does it have a power switch? What does it do? What is it Russia? So we're getting some vegetables. Got a big bag of mushrooms here, giant eggplant and I say, oh it's a long one, it's a long boy. So all the vegetables here are locally groom and that baby is sad. Look at this little carrots. Oh, that's so cute. Oh, can we have a little carrot on the barbecue? Look at these garlic like garlic saying like why would you want garlic doesn't smell? All right, by the way, Introduction time. This is Brennan. He's from New Zealand. He's going to be a tour guide for today. Yeah. Get a team from New Zealand can't eat some big big plans. Big plans. Big feet at the barbecue today. It's very nice. There's a lot of stuff that we're gonna get, we're gonna take this to the barbecue and get started. Yeah, by the way, this is the mascot of the area. So we're in Tomakomai and this is too much chocolate and he wears a little swollen outfit because swans are so popular here. Okay, so I'm gonna try to explain this. But uh but his name is super complicated because it's each broken down into the meaning behind it. So Tomakomai is the place, so he's mama Coco is a swan, White swan. So that's the show, Hannah show is a flower that's on his tail and then hookey, I forgot to say that clam. It's on his head. The clam is on his head then husk up. Oh no, I don't know what husk up is. Oh it's the thing on his on his chest. It's a thing on his chest. There we go. Alright, Time to try the husk of these guys have already tried it and it smells like grapes. It does definitely smells like groups, slightly different taste. I think it does taste a little more like a blueberry like blueberry. Great! A blip a group. Very alright. So we made it to the barbecue place, we just have to start cooking and just cutting up some vegetables and everything. And also at this place you can order meat as well and we've ordered um Genghis khan which is uh Genghis khan which is mutton. Does anyone know the story behind being called genghis khan. Yeah, true. I can't imagine her meeting with kate. My first thing in mushroom looks really good. Got some salt and pepper on it. Smells good too. Mm. Mm. Mm. Did you have a barbecue much in Canada? Yeah. In our backyard all the time. My family, my mom and dad are vegetarian. So we do like tofu dogs. We didn't grill any veggies though. It was, I've never girlfriends or like, uh, hamburgers. Uh, okay. Mm hmm. Is that we do just sausages. You can always buy bulk cheap sausages in Australian. Just like do them put them in white bread, onions, tomato sauce like All right. I have a big old piece of garlic and the garlic apparently. Yeah. It doesn't smell like garlic, which is so bizarre. Mm Oh, it's really good. Yeah. Yeah. I wrote it was gonna be really intense, but it's like just a good texture in like a little garlic.
