It is easy to forget that there is more to the journey than getting you from A to B. I love my little journeys within London. In this heaving city, I find that many of my favourite moments are when I find some time to myself and I’m on my way. The walks to work, and home and the bus rides when you’re not in haste.
I like the days when I have French classes. I get the walk and the bus ride.
I love it more in summer when you step out and the sky is still light. It was a hot day today. To step out into some fresh air was pretty special. I listened to Metro Area and walked to Oxford Street for the bus.
When buses are packed and stuffy, I disappear in to my books. Commuting is good because it gives you time to read. When i am not commuting, I take months to finish reading a book. But commuting when it’s busy gives you a chance to disappear into the pages of your books.
I love sitting on the left-hand side of the bus. I always sit upstairs on double-decker buses. The best spot is the front left-hand seat. This is the prime seat for seeing things. The massive windows provide the best views. I love that it’s a completely different perspective for being so high up. Being just a little over the standard rate for petite, I am not used to seeing things from up there. But I like being that high. I have always like looking out, looking down and just thinking, wow.
