It's easy to live without a car.

I've been doing it for 7 months now and I manage to get everywhere I need to be.

There are also advantages linked to this lifestyle:
๐Ÿ˜‡ My mind is more worry-less. No need to think about car maintenance, insurance hassle after an accident, scratches,...
๐Ÿ’ก My train rides allowed me to learn so much by reading and listening to podcasts. All while not having to worry about traffic
๐Ÿ’ฐ The financial benefit of not owning a car is substantial

If you're living in a big city, there's no reason to still have one.

Is that sense of flexibility really worth the huge salary cut? The monthly parking cost? The search for a parking spot? The worries?

Yes, lockdown and homework are decreasing my need for a car. But that'll continue to be the case in this new normal way of living.

A sustainable way of living.
