Italy is crowded on the Autostrada, specially from the half of the boot on up. Best time to move around with a vehicle is from 1PM-4PM (siesta time
)Germany, if you're on the 'bahn and see a speed sign, SLOW DOWN or you'll look at the flash from the corner of your eye. Weather is so-so with rain and clouds but right now it's in the low to mid 40's. Have fun.
