Just to give you an idea of how quiet Brisbane traffic is compared to most other places. Influenced heavily by where we live at Mt Nebo, 20+ minutes from the nearest traffic light, and the fact that I’m on a scooter.

This morning, I left at 8.34, and didn’t stop (ie. put my foot down for balance) until 9.08, when I stopped for a few seconds. Five minutes later, I’d arrived, with no further stops. Yeah, there’s a clock on the dash, I’m not quite that much of a nerd.

I’m glad the commute isn’t killing me as I had expected it to. There’s a sense of peace you get driving up and being at the mountain that’s valuable, and time has stopped whizzing past like the cartoon clock that drove life in London.
