In this episode of the Rock Your Retirement Show, Edd and Cynthia explore the concept of Slow Travel. They explain that Slow Travel is a movement that encourages travelers to take their time and stay in one place for an extended period of time, rather than cramming in experiences during a short trip. The idea is to explore the area more deeply, eat at local restaurants, and stay in local Airbnbs or B&Bs.
Slow Travel is also cost-effective, as constantly hopping from place to place can add up quickly. Additionally, travelers are encouraged to build in days for rest and relaxation, making for a more rejuvenating travel experience. Kathe, Edd and Cynthia also discuss the concept of a work-ation, where travelers work and vacation at the same time, and Kathe recommends ExecutiveTravel.com as a resource for planning those work-ation trips.
The hosts also touch on the benefits of slow travel, such as having more time to explore the local culture and meet like-minded people. Even if the connections made while traveling are not long-lasting, they can still be enriching experiences. The episode concludes with a recommendation to look into slow travel as a way to make the most of your travel experiences.
