Walk to work #BEDM

There are a few different routes I can take to get to work. If I take the most direct route, it's pretty short; less than a mile (0.7) and only takes ~10-15 minutes. It's not the most interesting; I walk along a pretty main road. Although, now prompted to think about it, there are a few things I pass. A shopping centre, two hotels, a student halls of residence, a pub, an old church and two parks. Some of the best things to look at mind are the people. I'm quite the fan of people-watching.

There is one constant, though. No matter which route I opt for, I have to cross one of the many bridges that straddle the River Avon. This one (along the most direct route) is essentially the last thing I see before I enter my work building. And on lovely, sunny mornings like today, it doesn't half perk me up. It's pretty, no? Cold, rainy, windy mornings are of course a different story.



The route home depends both on what I feel like and whether I need to make a supermarket stop. On sunny days, I particular enjoy this route across another bridge. The sun helps, obviously.


This month, I'm taking part in Blog Every Day in May (BEDM) and this is day 17.

  2. Wow! What a way to get to work. I decided not to use this topic; I drive to work and it didn't seem very safe to snap pictures while on the freeway, lol!

    1. It's not bad is it?! The view is very different if it's raining mind. : ( No, that doesn't seem like such a good idea!
