What is the best method of travel, and in what ways have you travelled?
Hmpfh! Well that depends on how far you’re going doesn’t it? Really? If I’m going to somewhere like Russia than I’d be damned if I tried to walk; know what I mean? Whereas if I’m popping down to the coffee shop – with my new laptop!!! 🙂 – then why would I drive or take a bus when its ten minutes away on foot?
I like bikes. I’ve had my bike for a year now and I use it whenever I get the excuse. I love sailing along the road, watching pedestrians blur passed me as I race by. It is actually racing bike I’ve got, though I’ve changed the seat and handle bars to something actually resembling comfortable. It would have been a real pain otherwise. Literally. Owie.
Walking, fair enough. If I have time and its not raining, I’m getting used to using my own two feet. I do melt in the rain though – I’m made of icing sugar; didn’t you know? – so even with an umbrella, I don’t like to do it.
Though I did tell my friend Gemma the other day that I felt we should all go back to riding horses. Not that that would be easier (I can’t imagine parking a horse at work for the day) but it feels cheaper, you know? Car insurance, MOT, petrol all that other junk is making me less and less likely to buy a car, even if I do pass my test in the next few months.
Preferred mode of travel, definitely my bike for short to medium distances. Anything longer than about ten miles I guess I’d prefer to take a train for. If I can. I’m not a fan of cars and buses are the bane of my life. Maybe when I’m rich I’ll get myself a private line of cars and a fleet of buses just for me and my mates. That would be nice.
