The route less travelled

I take the same route to work everyday. Let that sink in. Everyday. Except when there are diversions or blocakages. Everyday. There’s a reason for it, beyond the fact it’s the easiest – it’s the straightest/shortest.

I know it well; the best side of the lane to avoid the potholes, raised manhole covers, uneven surfaces, etc. The whole 22 miles of the journey. I know the best place to time a safe overtake, and when to back off because of hidden sideroads or driveways.

But every now and then I vary it, take a different route that may take me a minute or two longer, or a mile to two out of my way. It keeps me fresh and interested, I see a different scenery and different, sometimes more rural roads. I’m more awake and more aware, I take more notice.
