At the beginning of 2012 I remember contemplating my commitment to be car free for a year and wondering if I'd make it, and if I did indeed make it, would I go back to driving in 2013? Ha! As if.
I'm quite enjoying this non-driving lark, I love bikes, I like buses, I love trains, especially now that I have a bike that fits on them. Of course there are drawbacks and moments when I wish we had a car...generally those moments come when its pouring with rain and a car has just past me by driving through a large murky puddle, thereby covering me with drainage water. Yuk. It happens more often than you would think. That being said, those moments are just that, they are moments. Fleeting and momentary.
I'm immensely proud of this year, I may not have changed a ton about my life, but the things I did change made a ton of difference. I fell in love with bikes, I met some amazing people and I finally found my way home to England, something I'd been wanting to do for 20 years.
What's next? I was thinking of riding my bike some more. Whose with me?
Happy New Year!
