Slow travel is not so much a particular mode of transportation as it is a mindset. Rather than attempting to squeeze as many sights or cities as possible into each trip, the slow traveler takes the time to explore each destination thoroughly and to experience the local culture. Per the slow travel philosophy, it’s more important to get to know one small area well than it is to see only a little bit of many different areas — that way you’ll have something left to see on the next trip.But no matter how you do it, the key is slowing down — and making the most of each moment of your vacation.
One thing to keep in mind: While the pace of slow travel may be leisurely and laid-back, getting up close and personal with a new culture is much more challenging than just breezing through the major tourist sites. Part of the reward of slow travel is overcoming language barriers, differences in customs and other potential stumbling blocks to make connections with the new people you meet.
Slow Travel is a mindset - not a destination. It´s the feelings you take with you from your holiday but not the amount of Selfies you take or social media likes you gather. Enjoy the moment.
