Stepping off the train with a backpack, ski poles and rollerskates. Sign Up for Book Launch
I’m stepping from the safety of the train onto a cobbled Italian train station landing. It’s not exactly the glory I had constructed from months of day-dreaming about this moment. Though the replay of Neil Armstrong’s “one small step for man” is in my head, I once again contemplate the stupidity of this adventure. I also hear voices asking “why would anyone travel like that?” Neil Armstrong is a smart man, and I am no Neil Armstrong.
