Tonight I need to cross town for dinner. A half hour journey on public transport in a different city. Not my favourite part of travel, but at least I have time to research the route and the tickets.
Best price was to use one of the local public transport cards. Convenient, but I generally leave town with a few dollars or Euro or whatever still remaining. I put them away in my bulging travel folder and forget about them.
Hmmmm. Maybe I have the card for this city in my collection? I pulled out a selection – as seen above – and yes, I do!
Now to work out if I have enough credit for the trip and to get back to the hotel.
Maybe if I play my cards right someone will drive me home. So to speak.
