Slow travel has been named the way forward and so we’re keen to see what this trend means for everyone travelling. So, what is slow travel? We’ve got you covered with our all you need to know guide!
Slow travel is all about your mindset! It’s all about the quality of your experiences instead of the quantity of them. It’s all about embracing your destination and being present in your surroundings. It’s a great way to learn and interact with new lifestyles and communities.
It can be stressful travelling to lots of different places and trying to squeeze everything in and you might miss something along the way. It can be quite draining, making it an experience that isn’t actually very fun. By travelling slowly, it gives you the opportunity to experience things that you might overlook if you’re just trying to move on to the next destination. It’s all about unplugging, taking time for yourself and really connecting. Whether it’s connecting to the food, culture, or most importantly to the people.
The benefits of slow travel are endless from living like a local to be more respectful towards the environment when travelling. Not only does slow travel give you enough time to unpack and get the most out of your destination but it is also kinder on the environment and your wallet.
