Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

It's hard to believe that we are just days from the end of 2015. This year seemed to fly by with disturbing speed; more so than any other for me at least.

Personally, it's been a year of ups and downs. However, let's concentrate on the positives.

1) I got to explore more of Japan this year - from far-flung Okinawa (very different to mainland Japan, for the record) to World Heritage Sites in Kyoto and Nara; and even the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Osaka's Universal Studios Japan.

2) After years of putting it on my Resolutions List, I finally ticked off Open Water scuba certification as an acquired adventuring skill. In turn, I drew on the underwater experience to write this standalone Tomb Raider fic.

3) A huge one: I wrote a novel - well, a novel-length piece of Tomb Raider fan fiction.

4) On that Lara Croft note, 2015 saw the release of a highly acclaimed new Tomb Raider game... that like 50 people have played due to timed Xbox exclusivity. But hey, PC and PS4…
