I haven’t been to Europe for nearly 25 years, but this afternoon the Bacon family will be embarking on a 10-day trip that includes a lengthy stay in a major European city, with a side excursion to Normandy and Paris. There will be plenty of museums to tour, architecture to view, one of the most popular beaches on the continent to visit and great food and wine to devour. My aspiration (assuming my wife and son indulge me) is to roam around and observe how one of the world’s great cities designs its urban space to be walkable and bikable. If we can manage to set up solid Internet connections, I’ll be blogging regularly.
This photo, taken from the Internet, provides a clue of where we’re heading.
