On the first day of my Christmas-New-Year travel my car was hit while parked along the road. It happened just about when we boarded on the plane. Luckily, I found a note on my car when I returned, so the insurance company handled everything. Aside from the tedious procedures, it surprised me that the car could be considered as totaled with a hit that does not seem that severe.
Now I am with a rental car from the insurance company, but only for two weeks. After that I will mainly be back on public transportation again. Probably a good start for me to explore the city again, instead of planning activities in further and further places around the city.
