Dear Israel. Let me start by saying thank you. Thank you for your heartfelt conversations, your rich history and your equally rich present, your delectable hummus and your contradictions that let me understand how little I really understand. During the week I shared in your presence, I swallowed so many impressions that I will probably spend many more weeks digesting the little Israel-bits stuck in my memory. I thank you for a week of deep insights, but most of all I would like to thank you for these lessons.View Post
Slow travel to me means savouring the moment of the experience. Rather than seeing as much as possible – as quickly as possible -, travelling slow allows us to connect with our surroundings in a deeper and more meaningful way.
Slow travel is spending an afternoon in a local cafe instead of making your way through crowded tourist streets. It is about going off the beaten track and embracing what the local culture has to offer you. It is about seeing the wonders close at home instead of always going far away.
In this section, I share tips on slow travelling, as well as tales from my own mindful travel experiences.
