Doing without a car

Goodbye to my four wheels
   This time last year I sold my trusty old Honda: it had never given me much trouble but the alloy wheels had a tendency to eat into the tyres and I became frustrated by trips to the garage and the overall cost of running a car - over two and a half thousand pounds a year. I'd had my Antique Person's Bus Pass for a long time already and decided to rely on it for almost all travel. In doing so, I discovered fun, friends and health on the local Monmouthshire buses. All that money saved pays for a lot of retail therapy and reduces my carbon footprint to tiny.
