Taxi …. couldn’t live without them.
When I travel I don’t use taxis that much anymore … I use transfer services, public transport or I walk. Normally I choose restaurants in walking distance for my accommodation, but once in while I use them. I want them to be there … if I need them.
Love taxi drivers … because they can talk about everything. Only once I was lucky to get a less talkable driver. It was in Belfast, he didn’t like to talk while working. I told him he should apply for a job with Metro Bus Company because their drivers don’t talk neither.
A couple of years ago I decided for fun to always capture a taxi sign … on all my destinations, not so easy at times. No artistic thoughts behind it at all, only a fun detail.
“The one thing you shouldn’t do is try to tell
a cab driver how to get somewhere.”
My taxi company in Belfast, superb service. Use them nearly every day (twice) to work during the 10 years I lived there. Superb service! Still use them when I’m in town – April 2014
“Life is like a taxi. The meter just keeps a-ticking
whether you are getting somewhere or just standing still.”

Brighton, UK – February 2015
When living in Brighton … I had the most awaked lock on my front door, needed the key to open it from the inside … and I don’t know how many times I closed the door with key in lock on the outside, so I had to phone Brighton taxi and ask them to come and open the door for me, cost me £3.00 every time – worth every penny.

“I took a cab today, and the driver told he love his job,
he owns the cab, he got his own business, he is his own boss, no one tells him what to do.
I said “turn left”
