Openbaar vervoer

- Public transport -


Subway station ´Wibautstraat´. (for the photography geeks: long exposure! about 20 seconds)

Sometimes I take the tram, and lately the subway because I live near a subway station right now!
I prefer my bike over public transport though, especially when it´s beautiful weather...
Amsterdam is such a nice city to travel from ´A to B´ by bike. But you have to be careful; it´s very easy to get involved in a traffic accident because a lot of bikers (and scooter kids) don´t stop for a red sign!
Today, I almost got driven over by an old man in a Porsche (who is obviously in a midlife crisis). Next time I´m going to throw my bike against the car if he doesn´t stop when I´m walking the crossWALK!
Do you have a bike?

I don't have a bike. I walk everywhere and take buses and the subway. It sucks that I am so freaking scared of tall bikes, but I can't control them!!! Give me the tiny ones and I'll find. Or a scooter. I loooove scooters.

I got a lovely Romain. I think it was my dream to buy a nice crappy bike when I moved to NL. I do not like to use the public transport that often as I do not want to rely on them! But when it rains cats and dogs..then I hate biking.

The transportation is one of the things I miss most about Europe. No subway in Seattle...boo hoo.

Very nice and good idea - public transport is always a good subject - maybe I'll have to go to our "voetgangerstunnel" pretty soon that leads people from the left bank to the right and back - the 300m tunnel is covered in a 300m poem these days ...

i have three bikes :)

when i lived in London i ended up racing London-Brighton. it was so much fun even though i ended up not being able to walk for a day or so.

jamie clare said...

i don't. i do walk to work and such in nice weather though.


i wish we had a decent public transportation system where i live, but it's just some pretty questionable buses and about three taxis.

i do have a bike!
and i live in a beach, so i take long rides around the parks, and the sea shore around my place... but when i want to go to the city... too far to go by it... thou some times i think i would get faster on it... considerating the stupid drivers around!!!

and i have two tattoos
i got one of an escher painting , do you know this great great artists?
i love both my tattos, but i took care of not puting them in very visibles places (for my self) so i dont get bored of them!!


good night
