The Slow Traveller by Jo Tinsley
The Slow Traveller
Discover the secrets to more authentic, meaningful and sustainable travel with this inspirational guide brimming with evocative photographic naturescapes and sage advice. The Slow Traveller is a stunning call to change the way we travel today. Veteran slow traveller JoTinsley of Ernestmagazine invites you to embrace curiosity, make enduring connections with people and places and traverse your inner world by adopting the mindset of slow travel.
Tinsley leads your way by detailing her own experiences of traveling lightly, gently and adventurously - from following to its end a meandering road lined by deep, narrow fjords in the remotest part of Iceland to kayaking around Discovery Islands in British Columbia, encountering seals, moon jellies and a bald eagle, to sunbathing in the green oasis of Assistens Cemetery in Copenhagen's culturally diverse and creative Norrebro district. Each chapter focuses on an element of the slow travel mindset as well as a mode of travelling, type of destination or experience. Along the way, you will learn how to embrace: Spontaneity through meandering, open-ended road trips Human connection through the simple joy of sharing food Connecting deeply with yourself and your surroundings through a long-distance walking tour The unique perspective of roaming by water, in a boat or swimming The romance of the unknown with long-distance rail travel The restorative and reflective experience of chosen solitude in simple shelters The energizing benefit of slow travel through urban environments Stroll through the book at your own pace as you learn how to reconnect with a sense of wonder and enchantment in the world, and yourself.
