    Helsinki these days
    About 70 minutes door to door, often longer at Edinburgh festival time or, like now, when they’ve shut off roads to film a Fast & Furious film for the next ten days

    I don’t mind it, I just listen to podcasts, learn languages and enjoy the only times during the day nobody is asking me for stuff

    About 35 mins. Been offered something else that I think will add 15-20 mins to that and I’m not sure I’ll take it based on that.

    Preferably id like a job I could walk to and work 3 days a week. That’s my plan at 55 when I can access the pension!

    Quite surprised at some of these responses. Always thought mine was quite long at 40 minutes in London!

    A few seconds for 2 days per week when I work from home. But for the other three I’m normally somewhere between London, Birmingham and Glasgow. Thankfully the clock starts ticking once I get on the train.

    25 mins drive, non motorway against the traffic. Happy with that.
