Hot Pot; Hot Potential
Hi everyone, it's Kenn here.
Wow, is it the end of January already? I know it's cliché, but that felt like it went by much too fast! I hope everyone is working hard on fulfilling their New Year's Resolutions and setting good personal goals!
Speaking of which, my New Year's Resolution this year was to actually do things and go places that people have told me about - basically, I want to be more appreciative to others' recommendations. For example, ever since I came to Sendai, Many locals recommended I take a cruise around Matsushima Bay. Up until recently, I had been to Matsushima maybe seven or eight times, but I had never even taken a cruise there, and had never even visited Shiogama!
So with that in mind, I decided to take the Kakinabe Cruise a few weeks ago with my brother, who stayed with me all through January. We went mainly for the experience of eating many delicious oysters, but we got to learn a lot of interesting things about the islands around Matsushima and the history of Miyagi Prefecture too. It was a short, simple cruise and it was not very crowded, surprisingly, so we could have a good time and relax for the whole time. I would definitely recommend the Kakinabe Cruise if you have never tried it before.
So that was the first step of my New Year's Resolution of 2020. I hope to try something new every month of this year. I wish you all good luck on your own resolutions and hope you can finish the year with more exciting stories to tell! Thanks for reading and stay tuned!
