Most foreign countries aren’t as reliant on cars as America is. Growing up in Southern California,
there’s pretty much no option but to get a car if you want to go anywhere, as public transportation
is unreliable and inconvenient, and walking to many places is unrealistic. But when I studied in
France and London (and visited Italy), I walked virtually everywhere or used the bus and/or subway
system. The public transportation in other countries is much more reliable and more widespread. Many
people ride bicycles and mopeds as gas is much more expensive as well. Walking is also common in
other places (which is a great thing, in my opinion). So if you’re not used to walking a few miles
each day, I suggest you start training!
