What an excellent analogy for our current foreign policy! I never do, it's expensive to waste gas, might get lost, and would prefer to stay at home and get some work done on the house...you truly are an analogy genius!
I know instead you have to deal with really efficient and modern public transport and places with bike paths/ walking paths, playing this tiny little violin for you right now mate.I used to when I lived in the states. Then I moved to the EUSSR and started paying $8 a gallon for gas. Now it's just strictly business.
Well, eventually I plan to end up back home. Other than that, not reallySorry, couldn't help myself... The last part of the response is true though. Are there people out there that really just drive aimlessly? Surely you must have some destination in mind...
You don't really learn very much about an area through the windscreen of a car. You learn about it through seeing it up close; smelling it without the scent of Pine Fresh and exhaust fumes; hearing it without the thrum of pistons; and meeting it, talking to its inhabitants and not by seeing it whizz past at 30, 40 or 50 miles an hour.I don't as often as I used to. When I was younger and moved around the country I did it a lot. I like to learn about the area, see what's there, go directions I have never been before, and so on. I have found some really cool places "by accident". Places that I never would have found if I didn't go exploring. I don't do it as much as I used to, though.
