There’s a debate among travelers about method, approach and style. Is it better to travel “fast” or “slow”? Fast travel is common. Most often, it involves jumping on a plane, seeing the sights on the other end and returning within given time constraints. Occasionally, it is helpful where there is “a lot” to see and an overview suffices. The yearly two-week vacation many of us take has made this the norm. Slow travel, in contrast, has a different focus. By taking time, it is possible to experience new places and people. It is possible to take part, feel and share, gain understanding and have fun. What are some challenges of these kinds of traveling? How can adventure be found in unexpected places? Is it possible to make a positive impact while traveling? Upcoming posts will look at this issue further, so stay tuned.
