Slow Travel: A Movementis a beautiful, practical compendium of places, activities, tours and experiences that will inspire you to travel thoughfully.
It can be hard to travel at your own pace in the modern world without falling for the temptations of cheap airlines, last-minute tickets, and overzealous tour operators. Slow Travel explores slow travel as a physical and philosophical endeavour, showcasing journeys that nurture the soul.
You could decide to cruise slow-mo down Egypt's Nile on a 19th-century steam ship, visit ancient dzongs and temples in Bhutan or learn the art of sourdough baking in Venice. The book has features on the world's best wellness escapes, digital detox destinations and 'slo-tels' (hotels where long minimum stays and remote locations ensure full immersion). Slow Travel will inspire you and help you plan your travels.
Along with compelling information and interviews and gorgeous photography, you'll find a how-to guide of helpful tips, from planning for slow travel to what music to listen to in the slow zone. In this fast-paced world, Slow Travel helps you adjust your holiday time to a human pace.
