Update: Vespa Goal
I’m doing my best to save $$ for my goal of a Vespa by Sept. 2014. In addition to my automatic savings, this winter I walked when I could and put the saved fare in a jar. And surprisingly, I rarely took taxis.
But now that spring has sprung, I will be able to fully realize my new year’s resolution…I have not bought a metro card.
I am planning on walking everywhere, otherwise I will pay each public transit fare in $$. Sounds like a pain in the ass, right? I want it to be, so I force myself to walk and put that saved $$ towards my Vespa.
See you on the sidewalk!
