I’m so impressed with public transit in Italy. Nothing like this exists in America. Cities are designed with train stations in mind, subways and trams are used everywhere. I dream of this in America, where we can take fast, reliable rail instead of flying.

Off to Italy this weekend for a much needed vacation. Hoping I don’t gain too much weight and that I fall in love with walkable cities.

About a month until my wife and I take a trip to Italy. Will be my first trip to Europe!
