The Advantage Of Not Having A Car

The Gorgeous Views You Don’t Get To Experience With A Car

 

I woke up today, window was half-open, and there was a crisp fresh air in the apartment. I used my hand grinder and made a cup of fresh organic Brazil coffee. I used a mug that my friend Sari got me for the first time… what a thoughtful gift.

I journaled for a bit and looked up some hostels in Europe… no actual plans in mind just wanted to see what’s out there. I planned out my day and got up and showered. Then went to a new coffee shop just 2 blocks from my house for my second cup of the day and to read a new book I got from the library.

I walked back to my apartment, grabbed my bike and off to work. And here is the best part, a 19 mile commute in beautiful 60 degree weather, sun barely poking through from behind the clouds, gentle wind, fresh air and only a few cars on the road at 10am.

These views are what make my bike commute totally worth it. The decision to get rid of my car was a fantastic one.

Gorgeous mountain in the back, hawks flying overhead fishing the Columbia river and the Marine Dr bike path. The bridge in the view is the 205 bridge that I bike across.
