42 M17: //Erm neither do I// cause... well I don't know City car club I don't know what it means- what it is but... car rentals are- I think they're pretty expensive and er if you- if you... there it's- if something happens to the car it- it will... it will cost a //lot, a [inaudible]//
43 M16: //Mm it- it's- ec-// [prd]expensive[/prd] yeah
44 M17: It's //really//
45 M16: //I think// a- a few summers ago er... we were having this sort of... a little road trip... with our family... er... we travelled... Finland... a- across Finland and... and to a few cool places but
46 M17: Yeah
47 M16: and we had to rent a car because we don't have one
48 M17: Yeah
49 M16: and I think it- it worked well... and... everything was great... but... I dunno erm it's a... maybe it depends on the company that... rents the cars.
50 M17: Oh yeah... but I think it's- it's a- it's a bit risky probably.
51 M16: Yeah it might be.
52 M17: Err... what else can be shared?
53 M16: Hmm
54 M17: What //else can be shared?//
55 M16: //Economy// er

67 M16: [inaudible]
68 M17: wife or mother or
69 M16: versus restaurant yeah... well I think it's... definitely... cheaper to... eat at home and... share the food //there but//
70 M17: //Yeah and// er... er I think er... it's... it's healthy for you if you- if you cook... and er you- you share your food with some- somebody, well [fin]no[/fin]... that's not what I mean but er... if you cook with somebody you- you kind of have a hobby
71 M16: //Yeah//
72 M17: //and// er if you... cook er... heal- healthy food it's... it's good for you and er you get something to do and you- you get used to it cause... cooking is er is- is actually a... it's- it's very- it's very useful //for//
73 M16: //Yeah//
74 M17: you when you're- in your life and
75 M16: //Err// definitely.
76 M17: But it's also really nice some- sometimes to go to a restaurant and have a nice meal but
77 M16: Yeah... //I agree//
78 M17: //if you do it// all the time it's really expensive.
79 M16: Mhm... Aa... Get your guide versus official guides... erm... [laugh]... er well... it erm... get your guide... official guides... I dunno what

83 M16: //So you would// get er eh
84 M17: You- you... or you know at... a- a museum if... a museum if er you pay for an official guide or then you... if you get your guide at- I think it means like a... you read from the paintings
85 M16: Yeah
86 M17: or the
87 M16: Er get a small piece of paper that has //the//
88 M17: //Yeah//
89 M16: information on.

91 M16: //Yeah//
92 M17: //I d-// I don't like the... if we have a official guide and... h- he or she always... she er... or he er... his- the- they set the pace and I- I //like to//
93 M16: //Yeah// //that's true//
94 M17: //go on my// own.
95 M16: and it's the same thing about er er when you're being a tourist in new town... and you'd like to see these... places... er I personally like to you know... think about it as a... [inaudible]... er... that I can- I can er decide what to do and //where//
96 M17: //Yeah//
97 M16: to go and... and how long... will I like to be there and
98 M17: Yeah
99 M16: so on, so.
100 M17: Yeah... you have a- kind of //a free timetable//
101 M16: //I'd like to get my// own- own sort of guide myself //in these//
102 M17: //Oh yeah//
103 M16: situations.
104 M17: Me too, me too.
105 M16: And then there's Uber versus taxis, it's the last one.
106 M17: Yeah and er... aah... is- is Uber, I've never used one //cause//
107 M16: //Yeah// me neither.
108 M17: Is- is it er, well it is illegal.
109 M16: It's i- it's illegal in Finland.
110 M17: Is it erm... is it cheaper than a taxi?
111 M16: Yeah... //definitely//
112 M17: //then definit-//
113 M16: a lot of- er it's- it's really she- cheap.
114 M17: Yeah and er I guess it's pretty easy to get also.
115 M16: Yeah
116 M17: Cause well the- then I think er... if Uber was legal... then I'd definitely get a Uber cause if you can get //the same ride//
117 M16: //Yeah but it's- it's// I think it's- it's cheap to us because it's illegal //if it- if it would be//
118 M17: //Well that's true enough.//
119 M16: like... this er sort of... viral thing that's going on, then the prices would go up... //and- and//
120 M17: //Well that's true.//
121 M16: then er... definitely mo- more people would... you know... get into it and start using it... //and tha-//
122 M17: //Yeah then//
123 M16: that would... set the prices a bit higher too
124 M17: Well that's //true.//
125 M16: //also// so.
126 M17: But it's also... if you e- if... you'd get an Uber... and er... you know you wouldn't get er do y- if- if you get caught using an Uber, do you... get a fine?
127 M16: I think //that//
128 M17: //Would the police...//
129 M16: the driver gets a fine
130 M17: But //you don't.//
131 M16: //but you don't// get a fine, //yeah.//
132 M17: //Well// I guess there's //something wrong.//
133 M16: //So the risk is...//
134 M17: It's- it's... pretty //low.//
135 M16: //Is-// yeah.
136 M17: Yeah //I think//
137 M16: //That's true.//
138 M17: er Uber is- it's a good... er //er is a good invention//
139 M16: //I would go for Uber yeah.//
140 M17: cause... you get- you get a cheaper- I think if you get a... er... like... y- you need a ride home from the railway station, it's like er for me it's 25 euros.
141 M16: Yeah
142 M17: It's... if you think it for... the Uber //costs like//
143 M16: //It would be like...//
144 M17: 20, 15
145 M16: //something//
146 M17: //Maybe//
147 M16: like that.
148 M17: That's 10 or 5 euros, it's er
