Hi ..My favourite transport is the car..In fact you can travel by car anywhere and it's also more comfortable than the bus.I always walk to work and some times use the underground to get central London.And about bus i have to say i prefer to seat upstairs on double-decker buses.

Hello I Live in Buenos Aires and today I took the train, got off at Retiro station (main frame of steel manufactered 100 years ago in Liverpool), then I took the underground and finally I reached my final point.
Thanks a lot for your site
Best regards

In fact, the double-decker bus is the most famous and the most common transport in London. I think the bus is a kind of symbolfor London. You know, Netherlands has bikes, Japan has subways, and London has buses. I've never been to London, but I wish one day, I can visit the city and meet you, Rob and Adam! Maybe I'll see Tess and Ravi too. Who can guess the future?

Hello Mohammed,

I'm afraid that our House Rules don't allow users to share personal information such as phone numbers, email addresses or Skype IDs. We plan to introduce a way for users to contact each other in the future, but for now I'm afraid this is not possible.

My favourite transport is..... my feet!! :)
I always walk to get to work, even if it's raining. Luckily, it takes only ten minutes from home to work.
In Italy, we have some specials transports for tourists: in Rome, you can take an horse carriage, called "carrozzella", riding the city centre. If you visit Venice, you can get on (is the preposition correct??) a gondola and ride through the channels of the lagoon: an amazing experience! In Naples, you can take a cable railway called "funicolare".
I visited London twice, but I've never riddden on the big red buses... I always prefer to walk! :D

Buongiorno! That's my first comment here and I'd like to thank you for the podcast series. They are a great way to improve.

I live in a little area in south Italy and buses are quite often used by people who don't own a car. I enjoyed very much getting busses in my childhood but now I have to take two buses to get to the university five days a week, so the experience is much less fun! I really like driving cars. Perhaps that's because I don't have one of mine and I can't drive it everyday!

could that be necessity?
