carrotcake, this is truly funny. I always feel virtuous when I park as far away from my destination as possible. But the importance of even getting in 10 minutes a day of movement when travelling is not to be discounted.
Whenever possible, I book a hotel with an indoor pool, one that I know is warm enough, and spend an hour there instead of having dinner … if I can get away with it. Otherwise, 530am in I go. Americans are notoriously stingy about properly heating a pool, not like the British, whose pools are sublime.
