First, let me just say that the town of Guildford here in Surrey, part of the Greater London Built-Up Areas, is lovely and charming. But I have to admit, after a little bit of auto-snooping around, I’m saddened and confused because the car-scape of this place is so aggressively, relentlessly boring. I’ll back this up with photographic evidence.
Now, I don’t want to seem ungrateful; I’m absurdly lucky that my job involves travel, and one of the best parts about going somewhere new is experiencing what the overall car-scape is like. I’ve done in this in several cities already, and usually even a short walk can expose some hidden treasures, or at least quirky cars that capture the character of the area.
