Yesterday me and Gine went on quite the tour. First my parents, then her mother then a friend of hers and back home again. Since getting from my parents to her mother is a bitch1, we decided to get a cheap rental car and drive instead of relying on public transportation.

Going directly from Oslo to my parents or her mother is not a problem, we can travel directly by bus or by train respectively, but if we’re going to my parents or her mother first, a rental is a better choice. Yes, I know it’s not as environmentally friendly as it should be, but as long as it’s the same price as going with public transportation and a lot more convenient, people will still go for it. We need to be forced to think more environmentally friendly.
