For some reason, I'm fascinated with roads. Roads that we travel everyday lead to different cities, towns - places where people live a parallel existence, as oblivious to you as you are to them. I'm often excited when I find myself on a familiar road far away from home. I'm intrigued as I follow the road, passing landmarks, homes and businesses that are different from the ones I know. Sometimes I even take the long way home from just to see different sights.
Now don't get me wrong; I don't just go crusin' carefree whenever I get the whim. Gas is already far too much of my budget. But skipping the high-speed freeways every so often can be quite satisfying. And I've really got no other choice. I live in the part of the country that put the car on the road en masse:
the Motor City. If you wanna get around here, you've gotta have a car
because public transportation is not reliable. So since I'm gonna be on the road anyways, I might as well enjoy the ride :)
Lol. I love roads too. I just like scenery in general. I find myself taking walks/drives just to look at scenery lol. But yea I can imagine, the motor city doesnt seem like it has the best transportation lol (maybe because I think the midwest is just...country/boring), but hey neither does washington,dc!! Happy New month!ReplyDelete
Hehehe.... Thanks for stopping by, happy new month to you too. They're getting started on a light rail train next year over here, a long overdue project. And the midwest has it's country/boring and also city life. Lol.ReplyDelete
