Slow Travel

Holidays are holidays after all, and why rush about when you can slow it all down and take your time. Don’t feel that you need to embark on an action-packed tour when you can enjoy the slow life. There is nothing quite as relaxing as getting to an amazing hotel and spending the day just enjoying it, rather than feeling you need to be up and about exploring the area, day in, day out. Why spend two nights, when you can spend three or four and blend an element of seeing the culture and plenty of time to sit beside the pool maybe reading an amazing novel about the destination, being brought a chilled glass of wine and letting your shoulders drop. You might be able to cover a huge number of destinations within a country, but just take your time and know that you can always come back to tick off the rest in due course.
