The smell of smoking charcoal. Meat, shellfish and veggies over a hot grill. Ice cold beer and good company. This is my ideal summer day in Hokkaido.

We left early yesterday morning to have a barbecue at the in-law’s house. As is our yearly summer traditions, we MUST barbecue.

I think it was a year or two ago, we bought a BBQ set and ever since then, we’d keep it in our car to be BBQ-ready. Anytime. Anywhere.


Ah, summer days. I love it!
