So, yeah. Car travel over long distances isn't my favorite. Neither is flying (as any of you who've read my blog for long have undoubtedly already gleaned).
Buses are okay for local transportation, as is the subway.
TG swears motorcycles are the most fun way to get around. Yeah, they can be exciting, but what if it rains? And I do worry about getting smacked in the face by bugs.
Personally, I like piggy back rides best, but for covering distance, nothing beats a train. TG and I back-packed all over Europe with Eurail passes as our tickets to adventure, and it was wonderful. Aaaah...the charm of the choo-choo. The romance of the rails.
The lustiness of the locomotive!
Yeah, I said lustiness. Think of the movie North by Northwest. (That's a link to one of the best movie endings ever. Go check it out. Seriously, do it. It's only 30 or 40 seconds long. Don't worry, I'll wait...)
What'd I tell you? Who can resist imagery like that?
Speaking of imagery, and since it is Hump Day, how's this for transportation?
(Hey, you didn't think you were going to get away from here on a Wednesday without looking at a camel, did you?)
What's your favorite mode of transportation?
