Two months ago, not only did we move into our new home, but Simpleform moved into its new office on 2nd Street. As we were living only three blocks from the 16th St. Mission BART station, and I was working only two blocks from the Montgomery St. Station, I became a subway commuter for the first time in my life.
After a few weeks, the novelty of being whisked to and fro by mass transit wore off, and I started to miss walking to work. I’ve never been big into gyms, so in the past I’ve tried to integrate walking into my daily routine as much as possible. But now with work just over two and a half miles away, it was a little too far to hoof it twice a day. So I decided to split the difference. I’d BART to work and walk home. The walk only takes about 45 minutes (which is less than my previous walking commute of 30-35 minutes, one way), but I experience so much more of the city, and it gives me an opportunity to take some photos en route.
