Slow Travel

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.

 

 

Review: Hotel Los Castaños (Cartajima, Spain)

Earlier this month I traveled to Spain to attend a friend's wedding in Malaga. To make the trip worth it, my boyfriend and I decided to spend an extra few days in the Andalusian mountains. We wanted to explore the beautiful countryside and include a trip to Ronda, which my parents had recommended to us. When looking for hotels, we were disappointed at the prices of accommodations in Ronda itself. So we decided to look a little further and found this charming little hotel not too far from Ronda. I had no real expectations for this place but was absolutely blown away by its charm, comfort and the friendliness of the owners. I also did not plan to do a review of this hotel. But after my stay there, I was itching to share this little gem with the world.
