Amazing travel for the ears and exercise

I recently discovered Untold Italy podcast while doing my morning workout and staying warm inside (today is -36C with a wind chill of -54C) The information and amazing descriptions shared in this podcast by Katy and Josie have me longing to enjoy a glass of Italian wine while soaking up the sights and sun at an outdoor patio restaurant in Italy. The episodes are so interesting that I find myself choosing longer ones so my daily elliptical workout lasts longer.
