It is quiet convenient not to depend on public transport’s schedule or other people’s plans. Secondly, you may choose to travel in silence, diving into your thoughts, or listen to your own music. Moreover, you can control the temperature in a car in case you need. Generally, possessing a car means having more freedom.
However, when there are good sides, there are also bad ones. People need to stay awake while driving. If it is a long road, a man can strongly lack sleep. It is harder to enjoy landscapes and relax while being a driver than staring into a window in a bus or a train. Looking how fast things appear and disappear is quiet meditating.
