Impressions of a new country

Tag Archives: Commute

When I first arrived here, it took me some time to get used to the small differences I observed during every day life…

For example – on trams you are expected to ‘punch’ your own ticket in a little machine. Ticket inspectors will randomly hop on board and ask to see a few peoples’ tickets (but this happens very infrequently, I have noticed!)

Another small thing is that you cannot take a bag of shopping from one shop into another shop. You have to put it inside a locker at one end of the shop before you can actually do your shopping. A good way to deter thieves, yes, but a little inconvenient sometimes when there are only so many lockers available…

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
