Travel Ideas Magazine: Ski Nozawa Onsen

17 Feb

coverimageEven though I’m not the most stylish or fast skier going around, I just love skiing. So when the opportunity came up to write about our trip to Nozawa Onsen for Flight Centre’s award-winning, Travel Ideas mag, I jumped at it. You can read my take on skiing in Japan here.

My naked pants!

5 Jan

lululemon tightsI’m not scared of a bit of aaahctivewear and have found Lululemon gear suits me best. Recently when I travelled over to Lord Howe Island for a few travel assignments I had the opportunity to road test some new ‘naked sensation’ pants from Lulu.

All my other tights are shiny lycra, but these were a matt, cotton finish. Their naked name comes from the feeling – they do feel like you’ve got nothing on, so for the exhibitionist in you, they’re perfect, but if you have those kind of nightmares where you forget to put your pants on they might not be a great idea. Kidding. They’re great.

The style I have is Align, and they retail for $119AUD. Certainly not cheap but with all my Lulu gear, they’ve lasted so much longer than any other brands I’m happy to fork out the extra. They’re comfy on the plane (especially with a toddler crawling all over) and I really enjoyed using them on our hikes on the island. Check them out.

Thanks to Lululemon Australia  for the pants.

This piece, for Jetstar Asia is comparing the big boy of Niseko with the traditional little resort of Nozawa Onsen. Both are great, but for very different reasons. Check out my story Two Sides, Two Rides to find out why.

James and his guides are fantastic and go to heaps of great sites like Claustral Canyon, Juggler Canyon, Tigersnake Canyon and Empress Canyon, as well as Malatia Wall for abseiling and run tours of the iconic Six Foot Track.
