My Italian Vacation

My family and I spent incredible two weeks in Italy - first 5 days in Rome and then moving to Syracuse in Sicily. With my iPhone that monitored distance and steps walked I created simple spreadsheet in Google docs to keep daily distances walked. After I augmented it with main attractions visited each day I decided to recap whole vacation with simple line plot:

Interestingly, we walked the most on our first day. The Rome part of the trip included only one day that we walked less than the top day in Sicily on June 28 in Taormina. There are many reasons why, for example, renting car in Sicily or spending time at the beach or playing tennis definitely reduced time spent walking. Of course, more detailed analysis is possible having I imported real time steps data from my iPhone but it was a vacation after all so I am happy with aggregates and shortcuts instead.
