The case for slow travel

Travel can often feel like a sprint. Slowing down helped us see places in a different light.

After refraining from traveling because of the pandemic, I’m starting to exercise those muscles again. This time around, my boyfriend and I decided to approach it in a different way. We wanted to come back from a trip feeling relaxed and well-rested. We decided to take it slow, rather than being on the move all day. In the end, we realized that this is a way of traveling that really appeals to us, and it left us feeling excited for future trips.
