Over the years I’ve seen too many times how travel becomes something to be ticked off a bucket list and becomes driven by sites and sights. Slow travel is in danger of becoming part of this, as it becomes more marketing slogan than deep engagements with communities and their landscapes.
It’s time to (re) imagine travel as a deeper engagement with landscapes, their communities and ourselves. I’m a believer that a good way of doing this is within the broad slow travel approach, but with specific ideas related to forms of travel, travellers themselves and the landscapes, waterscapes and neighbourhoods through which we travel. I call this local slow travel or LoST.
