It'd take about 4:45 hours to go from my work to home by foot. I always knew that I'd #walk
it one day, just never thought that day would be today!
The distance between my work to the closest SkyTrain station is about 5km. I walk it almost everyday (rather than take the bus) in 50 minutes or less.
Today during my walk, I received an alert from the transit system that due to a medical emergency at one of the stations, the service towards my home was interrupted. So I had to take the train going the opposite direction all the way to the end of the line, then take a special bus towards another station to catch the train there.
Rather than being stranded with 200-300 people at a time waiting for hours for the special bus, and transferring trains multiple times, I decided to walk it home instead!
Today was just the DAY for it! The weather was gorgeous and the temperature perfect!
I took over 30,000 steps & got to enjoy some #beautiful #scenery
along the way.
Bonus 1: before reaching home, I realized that I was thirsty and starving! So I bought some nuts, water and 2 baby guavas on my way. When I walked out of the store, I saw a young homeless person. I asked him if he'd be interested in one of my guavas as I had no cash or change on me. He told me that he'd never had a guava before, so we chatted a bit about how he should proceed with eating it! He then wished for me to have a great day & to be safe 😊 that made my day!
Bonus 2: I got home about 50mins ago. I'm beyond exhausted, but I'm really happy - because I'm sure I'll sleep like a baby tonight. It's been months since I've had any proper sleep. 😪😴
Bonus 3: this was more or less the bike route I'll be taking when I start biking to work! So I'm now totally ready to begin biking as soon as the proper bike season finally decides to show up 😂😑
Final note: I hope whoever it was that had the medical emergency at the station is doing okay! 🌸
