Get inspired by Trafalco’s Instagram page, books and films set in your destination while planning your journey. It gives you a head start and it will strengthen your connection with the country and its people.
Tip 2: enjoy the journey
Choose transportation which makes it possible to enjoy the scenery such as hiking, taking a train or a boat. From taking a sailboat and discover the different islands in the Bahamas to railing across Spain and witness Moorish palaces and Baroque squares in Andalucia slow traveling will make your journey more fascinating.
Tip 3: nothing better than a digital detox
Unplug and reconnect with the real life and start enjoying the moment. Without a WI-FI connection you can really make the most of living in the moment.
Tip 4: local, local, local
Consume local. Trafalco.com offers you small local stays with character where you can submerge yourself in the local culture. Visit local bars and markets and talk to locals to find hidden gems away from mass tourism.

Meet new people and make friends. Slow travel gives you the opportunity to meet new people and share wonderful experiences.
