An inspiring read for future commuters too. I live in Wellington NZ. In our current place in Miramar, the beach is 5 minutes away, a bike lane gets me to work in 25. With Weta Digital literally around the corner our little burb has great food as well.
I’m about to move a little place an hour away with cheaper housing but better beaches. Your article’s a cheering one when I think about how I’ll enjoy the change.
