7 Tips for the ultimate slow travel experience

7 Tips for the ultimate slow travel experience

Tip 1: do your research in a different way

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.

Tip 5: don’t be a stranger

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

Tip 6: listen to yourself

Choose trips you like, if you don’t like visiting cities don’t do it. Stay longer in one place, who travels slow discovers more.

Tip 7: sharing is caring

Share the experience. When you ‘re back home it’s time to reflect on your holiday and maybe even re-evaluate your lifestyle. Share your experiences with us trough our Instagram page.
