Learning to Drive in Japan

There was so much more I could have said about learning to drive in Japan. So many weird moments, like the time my instructor started talking about 666 the number of the beast. Or the giant bat of remorse. Or the way I screeched to a halt at a yellow light on my test, but still managed to pass. I think driving school will be coming up again in my writing soon.

Japan can’t decide if bears are cute and cuddly or dark and dangerous

Japan Can’t Decide If Bears Are Cute And Cuddly Or Dark And Dangerous.

It feels pretty great to have something published for the first time. This is only the start. Determination station!

I knew I wanted to write about bears. Living with bears on the doorstep has been an interesting experience. When I throw out my rubbish I have to put it in a cage. That cage has been patched up with plywood after a bear had a go at it a few years ago. It’s a little bit more worrying than foxes getting into your wheelie-bin.
