Serenity Summary

At the end of the week my £31.75 outlay on bus tickets has seen my Megarider and camera travel some 726 miles by Stagecoach bus and some 71,000 steps. (NB the Megarider was a passenger for 28 of the miles with the Day return to Andrews paying!)

I call these my serenity miles and they add up to 753.3 miles.  The cost per bus mile works out a 4.37pence (on average).  What fantastic value for money but more importantly travelling by bus provided:

  • Opportunities to meet new people;
  • Opportunities to know existing acquaintances better;
  • The confidence to not be beaten down by the negative people in my life; and
  • 753.3 miles of extra serenity

I will be editing photos for weeks to come – but not next week because I have gained so much I intend to repeat the experience for the next 7 days and I hope you might like to tag along too?

Weather guru … usual time? usual place? tomorrow … what is the weather forecast?

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
