Truthful Tuesday — From Here to There

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.

    I’ve never been on a cruise. I am claustrophobic. I too know of vaccinated people who went on a cruise and contracted Covid. No thanks to purposefully putting myself in danger.

    I was going to tell a joke about the last person I know who went on a cruise (and got seriously sick while it wasn’t a contagious disease), but it’s not only too soon but still happening… this covid stuff. There was a medical specialist, on MSNBC, who was almost playing down vaccinations yesterday and emphasizing masks putting you (statistically overall royal you) at 54% protection when sitting next to someone on a plane who is infected. Turns out, that’s about where a booster puts ya’ too (for a couple months).

      Oh, and that’s if it’s only you wearing a mask; nothing dependent on the fella near you.

    I am hopefully taking a train trip this year. I know my one flight was not that fun, too much turbulence.
