First day and I miss it. Great start. Here are the subjects. CaH and Bele are also doing it. Anyone else that want honourable mentions?
1) For a long time I was able to say that I had moved on average once a year my entire life, but I lost that bragging right in my late twenties.
2) The longest time I have lived in one house is in excess of five years, but the longest I have lived in the same town is just over seven years. Am I settling down?
3) I often suffer insomnia-related problems. The one place I can always be sure to sleep like a baby is on a bus, train or plane, or sometimes, in a car... Take me for a ride!
4) I love my hermit existance, and have been known to take four week holidays where I make an effort to not have to leave the flat more than once or twice.
5) I also love to travel. I like being on the road. Airports and train stations don't daunt me, even with the crush of people that normally intimidates me so. Just sitting on a train and being going somewhere perks me up no end. Getting there is overrated, however.
6) Turbulence on planes do not scare me, but I get awfully sleepy from it. The reason for this was that for close to two years I was commuting more or less weekly across the Baltic, on a boat. I usually slept in a cabin beneath the car deck, being able to feel the vibration of the engines and hear the roar of the ice in winter.
7) I do not have a driver's license, but I like the idea of being able to drive. At the moment it is coming down to a financial question - if I had someone that could teach me outside of expensive driving school I would go for it.
8) My daily commute is between 75 and 90 minutes each way from door to door. That is 2,5-3h daily. Sometimes I hate it, there are so many better uses for my time, but sometimes it is ok. It depends on if I have something to distract me on the trip - a nice thought, good music, maybe someone to talk to on the phone or the tablet.
9) I go everywhere by public transportation (metro/commuter trains/buses), and walk the rest. I walk far and relatively fast. My stride is naturally long and I have difficulties finding a rhythm which adjusts itself to a slower pace, so I often wind up walking alone even when with a group - ranging ahead, waiting, or even taking detours. Sometimes lagging behind, for instance taking photos of something, only to catch up again.
10) I have never been to Britain. This bothers me. I would like to go.
