Japan VS Scotland; Rugby and Bagpipes

I have been a part of Pipe Band since I was about 13 years old. I joined in Cadets and it has been pretty much a constant in my life since. 

When I came to Japan, I thought that I would have to put that on a back burner - assuming that Japan had little to nothing in the way of Scottish culture, and would probably have one Pipe Band at best.
Well, I was partially correct, but also so wrong.

Taiwan - Golden Week 2016

Taiwan! Bubble Tea!
Golden Week is a string of holidays in late May and early April that form a week or so long holiday for most people in Japan. It’s a crazy time of year for travel, within Japan or to nearby countries. This year I decided to go to Taiwan.

Computer Issues

I haven't posted since June, wow...
Well, I do have a legitimate reason. My laptop died. Super died. 
My hard drive completely failed after I accidentally put my laptop down not quite gently enough one day while trying to move it one handed...

It was just my hard drive though, so I was able to fix it... eventually. But summer was so busy, I honestly was never at home to even have time to use it, so I never got around ti fixing it till a week ago. Luckily it was a pretty easy fix (switching out the hard drive for a new one) and I only lost a few months of data, as the rest was copied onto my external hard drive. 

But, when it was broken it meant I couldn't make any posts, as blogger on mobile is horrible. I do have a lot of posts planned out though, so I'm hoping to get them published quickly so this can be all caught up again.

So stay tuned!
