Confessions of an Ex-Commuter

Yesterday I

  • Went to work

  • Went home for lunch (mainly because I could and it was a novel as a big book of fiction)

  • Went back to work

  • Went home for dinner

  • Went to rapper practice

  • Went to the pub

  • Went home to bed



Entirely on foot! hehe!

I get the impression I'm going to like living here. I wonder how long I can get away without needing any other form of transport. I suspect Exeter might be a bit of a walk on Friday, so I guess it won't be that long.

Switch on the radio on Sunday evening a caught part of analysis, which was all about our inate need to travel. One of the key things it covered was how commuting didn't generally bring with it the level of satisfaction that would generally be associated with the improvement to living environment associated with it. Couldn't help nodding in agreement there.

Sounds good! - but yes, if you want to walk to Exeter, I think you'd better start now! :-)

It's only about 15 minutes' walk from St. David's station to campus, and then everything's all under one roof (unlike Edinburgh or Sheffield).

Was more concerned about walking London-Exeter rather than Exeter Station - University. Am more likely to do the latter than the former.

I love walking to work, it takes longer than cycling but it is so peaceful to walk in the fresh air.

Not sure the air around Old Kent Road qualifies as "fresh", but it's nice all the same.
