Bloganuary prompt – Jan 14

What is your preferred mode of travel?

Sometimes I think I’m indecisive because I don’t have a ready answer for this (see also: favorite song). I think part of the reality is that I don’t think too much about modes of travel, and I am ready to be delighted by any of them.

For really far distances, I prefer flying. Or if flying makes the travel more convenient in some way (like, I prefer to fly to NYC, because I don’t want to park the car in NYC; we live 6 or so hours from the city). However! I want to prefer trains! We just don’t have enough locally for me to use them. I think what I really want is to be on the Orient Express while a murder mystery is happening (but not be the murderer or the murderee). Or the snowpiercer train WITHOUT the class system and human abuse stuff.

For medium trips, car works for me. I like listening to music. I can’t listen to podcasts while driving, because then all I focus on is the podcast and not driving. I’d prefer if we had good light rail, though. Both for the environment and for the podcast problem.

For stuff around town, I try to walk, and I prefer to walk, but if I’m running late or it’s VERY cold, I drive instead.

I’m re-reading the Wheel of Time series and they take horses everywhere, and I guess that’s also the dream.
