Walking home

I walked home from work today. All the way. I normally catch a train, and it takes about half an hour. The train does take a rather roundabout route, though, so it’s not beyond reason to try walking it. I thought it would probably take a bit over an hour. It turned out to take a bit over 1.5 hours.

The route is shown on this Google Map.

I decided to try it today because it was a coolish afternoon, rather than a hot summer one, with a lot of cloud around, so I wouldn’t be walking all the way in the sun. Unfortunately it decided to rain on me. It was 26°C and basically 100% humidity. And the route is fairly hilly, so I was rather drenched in sweat by the time I got home. Still, it was a good exercise and I feel good for having done it!

    I note that you haven’t given your exact home address on the Map. That seems wise.

    The weather was similar here in Wellington yesterday: hot, humid, and drizzle.

    Oh, and sorry to repeat a post, but I noticed you live near Wollstonecraft. Is that area made of large cube blocks?

  3. Heh, no. It’s actually named after a cousin of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, who was the first person to settle in the area.
