And back again…

Today, there was a strike on the Metro. I had wondered why so many more people than normal were joining my walk over the Tyne Bridge, until I remembered…

Up until today, I’d still been going home by bus, but as the Metro strike was expected to lead to heavier than usual traffic (and it was already taking far too long to get home some nights), I decided to walk home. And waddaya know, I enjoyed it.

With the traffic being often quite heavy, and with waiting times for buses ranging from zero to twenty minutes, it’s actually quicker for me to walk home than catch the bus. Decide to make a habit of it.
