I Get Around

I am sure I have said this before, but in London, you truly do not need a car.  In fact a car is a nuisance in London.  Where to park it, the crazy traffic, the risk of crime…a car is a downright liability here.  In addition to the fact we have a pretty incredible public transport system.  I can travel for over an hour on the bus for £1.50, which is peanuts. Bus stops at the end of my road every 4-6 minutes at rush hour, and every 8-10 minutes at off-peak times.

Elsewhere in England it is really not the same.  A car is a huge advantage, a huge leap of freedom.

I loved the feeling of freedom that passing my driving test gave me!!!  Since then I have clocked up many thousands of miles.  I have travelled the length and breadth of the country on voluntary projects and also on pleasure trips to spend time with wonderful friends I had made.

To me it was an incredible breath of fresh air to be able to break out of the town I had grown up in, using a set of wheels  to escape.

Then I discovered the car stereo…I remember compiling my own CD of travel tunes and the very first song I chose to get me in the mood for the road ahead was the song I have chosen for Day Two of the Three Day Lyric Challenge.  I would turn this song up as soon as I hit the motorway (highway/freeway) and sing at the top of my voice…FREEDOM!

To leave their best girl home on a Saturday night
