But I don't see the need to have one here in Sydney to get around. I live near the train station and the bus stop is practically in front of my door step. Sure, it takes me a while to get to work every morning and driving will most certainly cut the travel time in half but it's costly to maintain a car and petrol isn't exactly cheap. So it isn't that appealing to me.
Then it hit me - what about getting a scooter license? I've always wanted to own a Vespa ever since Italy. Plus it's small, pretty and cute. Upkeep will be cheaper and fuel consumption will definitely be much less than a car. I guess the downside is the weather - I won't be able to ride it when it's raining or during any crap weather Sydney decides to have.
I think it might be a better alternative. Though friends and family are against it. They are convinced it's dangerous and inconvenient. Hmm... what do you think?
