Di, of Pensitivity101, is our host for Truthful Tuesday. This week, Di asks us:
How do you prefer to travel (plane, car, boat, bike, train, other)?
These days (since 2019, anyway), I haven’t been doing much traveling, other than in and around the San Francisco Bay Area where I live. Thus, most of my limited travel has been via car (or bicycle for short trips into town or for some exercise).
If I had to travel a relatively long distance, my mode of transportation would depend upon whether or not there was a sense of urgency to get me from point A to point B, or if it was a more leisurely, vacation type of trip.
I hate flying anymore after having done it for my job for so many years. So the only way I would get on a plane would be if I had to be at my destination in hours. Otherwise, I’d prefer traveling by car and stopping at interesting sites along the way.
I also enjoy taking the train when time is not of the essence and the destination is reachable by train. As to boats, I have been on a few cruise ships, but I don’t have any interest in going on any more cruises at this point. Almost everyone I know who has been on a cruise in 2021 or 2022 has contracted COVID. So I’ll take a hard pass on travel by boat.
