Public transportation vs Public transportation...




This is my means of transportation to and from work. It's brilliant! Every morning I have my breakfast and a bit of read / socialising (depending on whether I meet someone I know or not) on board, and every afternoon I take a power nap on my way home...

Some people (living elsewhere, of course) suggest it must be horrible having to go by ship. Boring, no less. Pardon? There's always seating. In good weather you can sit on deck and enjoy and ice cream or what have you. There is a kiosk and everything.

My urban friends travel more like this.

How can they even begin to compare the two..?

I couldn't agree more.

It's true. There's nothing like a bit of enforced relaxation in your day. With a great view as well. Enjoy it as long as you can.

What a brilliant choice you made! I have not delved far enough into your blog to find out what it is you do for living or where it is that you live. But it seems to me that you have made wise decisions.

From where I live, I can go 20 minutes by boat, then take a 10 minute walk to work (and bump into Rarity on my way every now and then!) - or I can go by car, which means 45 minutes driving + being held up by traffic.. Easy choice!
