Another day, another way!

What I love about Sydney is the countless ways I can get into the CBD. There are so many wharfs! Today I decided to get the ferry from one of the countless terminals dotted around Sydney’s coastline.

Today’s journey, Neutral Bay (centre of image) to Circular Quay.

Because there are so many, the demand doesn’t seem to be so great. There was an exception to this recently during a very busy and warm weekend trying to get the ferry from Circular Quay to Manly, a very popular beach town (top right of the map). It was rammed, so much so that I had to wait for a second ferry as the first was at full capacity. This doesn’t seem to be commonplace though, each of my journeys has resulted in me finding a seat very easily and not having to give it up for someone that needs it more. The service reminds me more of a bus service with stops just down from streets and residential areas, one of the three stops today picked up a family. How cool is it that a ferry can stop solely to pick you up?

As I have said before, I recommend taking a different route to work if possible. It takes the boring, repeated routine out of life and spices the day up a little. Even if we can mix our day up a tiny bit in some way, we loosen those shackles that society and employment place us in that little bit more. By changing the daily routine, we gain a little more control.

To infinity!
