Chatterbox #22 – Interviewing Adam Hoyt

Harp recently had a chat with Adam, a friend of Culips, when he was staying in Montreal. Adam currently lives in Japan and was back in Canada for a short time visiting before returning to Japan. While he was here we talked to him about his experience overseas and what he misses about Canada when he is away. His answer might surprise you! It surprised us!

Sample transcript

Harp: Have you done any travelling around Japan right now? Are you going to do some more when you get back?

Adam: Yeah, I’ve done a bit. I’ve been around to a few cities, Hiroshima, Okinawa, Kyoto, Nara, of course Osaka ’cause I’m very close to Osaka. But I haven’t been up north. I’d like to do that.

Harp: OK, so maybe you’re going to do that when you go back?

Adam: Yeah, once the weather warms up I’ll go up north.

Harp: Is it cold there?

Adam: It’s not that cold, Canada is much colder than where I’m staying in Japan but I’m a bit of a wimp. I don’t like the cold weather. I complain about it all the time.

Harp: Yeah, you fit with Culips then, we’re always complaining about the cold weather. OK, so that’s about it for us today. Thank you so much Adam for coming in and joining us today.

Adam: It was my pleasure.
