The work-related course was in a location that was slightly closer to the University, but a location which turned out to be awkwardly located when it came to buses. I looked up the bus options for getting to and from the University and discovered that it would take me roughly half an hour each way ... I also knew that it would take me half an hour each way to walk the distance. I opted to walk.
So busy the last few weeks!!

However, I have managed to get quite a bit of errand walking in. And today, I walked from the university to the nearest spot where I could catch the bus.


I mentioned it elsewhere, but I'll mention it here as well ...

Last weekend, Rowan and I did another car-free trip away.

We flew into Sydney, took the train to where we were staying and walked the remaining distance.

We were in Sydney for a cycling conference which Rowan needed to attend. I attended a few sessions, but spent the rest of my time wandering around Sydney. I also joined the group for lunch and dinner ... and of course we all walked to the restaurants we'd booked. I could be wrong, but I don't think any one at the conference had a motorised vehicle there.
