It’s late June and Italians have flown the coop for their first vacation of the summer. Vacation one (that’s our name for it) is right after school ends and the prices are still low for flights and lodging – as was explained to us. The main vacation for Italy is the revered August vacation. We tend to avoid vacationing in August. We associate August vacations with crowds of people in places we’d rather not be. Hence this playlist’s name: Unpeopled Space or at least the desire for them.

The playlist name comes from a track by Daniel Rossen from his release You Belong There. The track is “Unpeopled Space”. We added the S.
