Penny Watson's Slow Travel

It can be challenging to travel in the modern world, easily lured by the temptations of fast planes, cheap airlines, last-minute tickets, quick fix travel apps and overzealous tour operators. Slow Travel is the antithesis of these overcrowded tourist hot spots and tired checklist experiences; rather, it emerges from our longing to seek connection with ourselves and our lives in more intense and meaningful ways.

Penny Watson's Slow Travel is a beautifully designed and practical compendium of places, activities, tours and experiences that will inspire you to get on the road in your own time and on your own terms. Watson explores slow travel as a physical and philosophical endeavour, taking readers off the beaten track and through nature, and unveils journeys that will nurture talent and ignite the inner-self.

Inside you'll discover incredible walks and epic hikes that will take you to mountain peaks, through jungles and across deserts under starlit skies. You will find islands, boltholes and remotes escapes alongside ways and means of finding calm in big bustling cities. You could decide to cruise slowmo down Egypt's Nile on a 19th-century steamship, visit ancient dzongs and temples in Bhutan or learn the art of pizza-making in Italy. In this fast-paced world, it's worth adjusting your vacation time to a pace we can all strive to keep up with.
