Do you recall the first time you ever went on a bus or train by yourself?
Where did you go and why, and did you feel excited, anxious, terrified or something else.
Yes, 1956, I was 8, Harlow, to Broxbourne, on British Rail Steamer, to go swimming at |Hoddesden pool. Yes, I was excited, not at travelling by myself for the first time, I've always had plenty of self confidence, but being on this massive steam engine.
The summer 0f 1960, best I recall, when I was about 11 or 12. Took the bus with my little sister from Wichita Falls, Texas, to Rule, Texas, a trip of about 2.5-3 hours to spend a week or so with cousins. Excited to be going on my own and a touch anxious about being in charge of my sister away from home.
Yes, When I was around 10 on a bus to visit relatives in up state Virginia.
I was studying in Ireland and took the bus from Galway to Cork by myself for the Jazz Festival. Met a woman on the bus who took me in for the weekend and showed me around town. brilliant fun! :0)
No, because that time has not occured yet. And I hate to think of the day when it does. I'll be so confused...
Well my first journey on a bus by myself was when I was approximately 10 years old. I was travelling to visit a friend to spend the day at her house.
I was anxious not to miss my stop on the bus, going and coming back. Looking back I'm surprised I was so anxious as I had been taking myself back and forth to school and doing local errands to shops since the age of about 4. Perhaps it was the fact that if I missed my stop the bus might take me to somewhere I didn't recognise and I would have difficulty in getting back. That said, the journey was only about 5 or 6 stops away from my house and I could have walked it anyway! Anyhow, afterwards I was quite proud of myself for journeying without mishap.
Yeah, the 1st time i sit on public bus, i had encounter a molester. I was on the way to work, in the early 18 years old. The molester used his leg to stroke my lower part of my leg. I stared at him and told him to buzz off. He pretended nothing happened and continued doing so until i couldn''t stand anymore. I left the bus and catch another bus instead. A bad experience for me.
Yes, I can I was 11 years old and had won a place at the local Grammar School which was some 5 miles from home and involved me getting on the bus.
That bus ride was to become my daily routine for the next five years. I can remember standing out doors in the snow and the rain waiting for the bus that was always late. My parents moved when I was in the 6th form and at least I could walk to school
One of the first times I got a train by myself was in France. I was soo nervous and luckily had someone at either end putting me on and taking me off the train however, I made a big mistake and got off at the wrong stop!!!
It was quite funny actually... I was stood up on the train because I was too nervous to leave my suitcase and go look for a seat. The train was quite old so there were no announcements saying what stops we were at and usually there are signposts when you arrive into the station. I am quite tall and when we can to the stop I shouldn't have got off at there was a sign to Le Mans which is where I had to get off. Despite being told the station was huge and lots of people will be getting off I panicked, picked my suitcase up and jumped off. It was as I looked up at the sign I realised that above it was an arrow pointing down the train track and the station was tiny with no one on it!!! I turned to get back on but the train was already moving on!! HA I rang my mum like soooo i might have made a mistake!!
Since then I have been sure to double check the signs!!!
