Travel Tips for Slow Travelers
What is Slow Travel?
That's how we define Slow Travel:
Places & Attractions for Slow Travelers
The best way of slow travel is to focus on specific places or attractions and take your time. Which places are particularly suitable for this? Which sights are worthwhile? These tips will help you to find such excursion and travel destinations.
Roadtrips to Savor
Individual travel by car is perfect for slow travelers. You can take your time and explore a region in detail. By car you are independent, can stop wherever you want. You can also continue driving, if a destination is not to your liking. You can make trips from a fixed location, follow an itinerary or take a roundtrip within a region.
Boat and boat trips
Cruises, trips by houseboat, river cruises or even boat trips on rivers and lakes - all are perfect for slow travelers. What could be more relaxing than letting a landscape slowly pass by while sitting comfortably on deck or cruising along a river?
Traveling by motorhome exudes the taste of freedom and independence. Is that correct? What should be taken into account on motorhome trips? The answers to these questions and more can be found in this article collection.
Experience Customs and the Local Way of Life
The characteristics of a region can be experienced by its local traditions and customs and in the way of life of its people. The cattle drives in the Alps are an expression of everyday life as well as the Tintamarre in the French-speaking regions of Canada, where the Acadians celebrate their culture. A North American Powwow expresses this as well as a wine festival in the Austrian Wine Quarter.
Enjoy Art and Culture
Art and culture of a region offer a similar experience. This concerns both high art and folk art. Both can express regionality. Just think about how the images of the Canadian Group of Seven in the National Gallery in Ottawa differ from the paintings of Dutch masters hanging in the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum. Or how the masks of African woodcarvers differ from the folk art of Nova Scotia.
Experience Creativity and Design in Hands-On Workshops
How people shape their personal environment in certain regions is an expression of their culture and way of life. It's exciting to look for these differences. The cozy cottages on New England's shores are immediately placed in this region because they only occur there. The same applies to Scandinavian design, which can be recognized at first glance, or to colorful African patterns that are immediately interpreted as such. It's a lot of fun to be creative yourself.
