Biking through the jungle..

Sometimes when I am biking to work I get the impression the cars behind me can get impatient. The cars, now, not the drivers. Really.

When I am cruising down a big hill sitting on my brakes, and not moving over because of too many parked cars, I can hear them back there. Waiting, watching. Almost feel the metaphorical tail swish as they huff and pace waiting to blast past me on the narrow stretches. When the narrow spaces open and they are free, the growl of the engine speaks for itself, and I flinch hoping the angry car doesn’t pounce on me for punishment, for making it wait.

Or, I find riding to work both boring and stressful simultaneously, and diesel cars are loud. Either or 🙂



About adventuresunplugged

The world is a really cool place. I moved to Zurich almost three years ago to start my PhD, and have really enjoyed the different opportunites living close to the Swiss alps offered. This blog is about some of my adventures, climbing, mountaineering, rock climbing, traveling... life in general! Wow, haven't updated this bad boy in some time! While the above is still true I have gone on to finish the PhD, so that is Dr Unplugged to you. I also have landed a job in Switzerland and will be shortly moving to Geneva. Clearly I have some adventures ahead left to explore with you guys along for company!
