The Wheels on The Bus...


This morning, as I sat waiting for the bus, I seriously contemplated skipping work altogether.  It was that nice of a morning and it just seemed like such a shame to waste away those hours inside a cubicle.  Unfortunately guilt got the better of me and off to work I went.  For my morning commute, I take full advantage of every form of public transportation offered to me – bus, train, ferry, you name it.  Although some days this commute is a hellish nightmare, I do have to say that Sydney offers a pretty good system of public transit.  I mean it took me 5 years of living in LA before I realised they even had a subway system.   

But what I really love about my commute is the people watching – I love to people watch.  Take for example the woman that looks like Anna Wintour’s twin, complete with perfect bob and dark glasses she wears everyday, rain or shine.Then there are the people who talk loudly on their mobiles and I get to hear all the gossip going on in there lives, sometimes more than I ever wanted to know. I have also started reading to pass the time and currently have picked up Toby Young’s ‘How to Lose Friends and Alienate People’.It’s a great read, just be warned – you might become one of those crazy people on the bus that talks to themself and chuckles out loud -I know I certainly have...

I am frequently that person who laughs out loud on the tram! For some reason, I always seem to read the most amusing books on the tram. Better than the sad ones I suppose!

I walk to work so kinda miss the book-reading time riding the bus offers. But I've been that person laughing on the train before, and when i'm at work and my husband emails me something stupidly funny, i'm the one sat laughing at my desk for no apparent reason! hehe!! xx

There is just something so relaxing about reading on the train!

I'm with you! I totally love to people watch! And there's a ton of interesting things to see here in NYC :)

I am a great people watcher too. In fact I am marvelling at how the fella opposite can juggle his coffee (that he brought himself in a thermal cup) and his laptop and I wanna ask who that is playing on his iPod (it's loud enough to hear).
