Two days of the working week went by so quick. Before I know it, it’s gonna be the weekend again.
As I speak, or better yet, as I was writing this on the train, I come to think of how I am getting accustomed to commuting. Most times I dread it especially today because it was raining cats and dogs almost the entire day. I was dripping wet on the way to the bus stop. Of all the times that I have to forget bringing along my umbrella with me, why does it have to be now???
Anyhow, I survived 🙂
When it’s raining here, it’s like a rather mild drizzle back home. When it’s a heavy downpour, they call it storm 😉
The mode of public transportation in Sydney is only by train and bus.
Going back to my struggles as a commuter, it’s gross when you’re seated next to someone who didn’t even bother to put on a deodorant-if you know what I mean. I simply stop breathing the entire journey! Good thing I didn’t puke! Sorry! LOL!
Commuters at the train station
What’s even more annoying is when you try to get an eye shut but some commuters were simply too inconsiderate talking so loudly on their mobile phones. They forget that they weren’t in the comfort of their own homes!
No! He’s not the culprit. LOL!
Inside the bus
Anzac Bridge is always a sight to behold!
And what about when I have to walk-run-run fast just to be able to catch the earliest train and bus? How I would have loved to wear a decent high heeled footwear to work but I don’t want to sacrifice comfort over fashionable appearance.
Just a few of the commuters very early in the morning

So much for my lamentations!
Let’s focus on the good side this time.
Obviously, I am loving it while on the smooth train travel. No congested traffic to beat. I don’t feel bored at all. I utilize the time getting in touch with friends and lovedones.
I remembered there was one instance when I went past the suburb where I was supposed to get off. I was so engrossed with the chat that I never really noticed I went past it. Lol! That was one lesson learned!
I also get a chance to compose drafts on my blogs via my iphone which I have to proofread prior to publication when I am infront of the lappy. That saved me a helluva lot of time! Talk about making use of the time and the internet data to the hilt! 🙂
One thing significant here too is that commuters come from various walks of life. A lot of the people here commute because it’s hard to find a parking space in the City. And if ever they find one, it will cost them a bomb per hour! It’s not even worth it to pay $40 or more for only 3 hours!
Personally, even if I could drive, I’d still opt to commute. I believe the pros of commuting outweighs all the cons.
