what is slow travel?
The slow food movement in Italy was born against fast food and everything that was handled with fast food and exaggerated consumption. When this philosophy grew, there was a trend of slow travel.
Along with this, citta slow (slow cities) were created to promote cultural diversity and internal characteristics for homogenization and Americanization.
For a city to be a slow city it must have several requirements such as not being a capital, having less than 5000 people and the old town free of traffic.
who is slow travel?
The slow traveler is that traveler is not intended to be from city to city, or to complete a route to have flags.
Although for many travelers it is a pride to collect countries, the slow traveler is established in a place to get to know it slowly, enjoy being comprehensive and slowly savor the experiences.
we only know that we know nothing:
the smallest city has many things to do. it is not uncommon for people to live forever in them.
It may sound normal to know such a country or continent, but the epithet may be pretentious, as it does not include towns, provinces, municipalities or districts of all lifestyles.
for the brain it is better to associate and group through cliches, stereotypes and generalizations, otherwise it could not process all the information. The reality is when we travel a foreign place in a short time, we test their experiences and give us sketches.
slow travel ideas:
- stay a week in a city.
- take a course abroad
- rent or rent an apartment for a season.
- explore the surroundings on foot or public transport
- bike from one town to another exchange houses
- investigate a cultural topic.
- sleep on trains and meet people.
- volunteer abroad
- teach something
- stay with foreign friends and share
- rural tourism and learning the activities of a farm
- traveling by motorcycle, bike, car, etc.
- go shopping at the local market and prepare your food
- have a picnic
It doesn’t matter, it’s doing it slowly.
