Take time to enjoy the experience, visit people and savor places.

Slow travel is a breath of fresh air for everyone who has "been there...done that" and wants something deeper. Our suggestion: take a deep breath and slow down.

Get to know the locals and let them share insights and memories about their neighborhood, be it a city park or a rural forest. Slow adventures don't need to be far away.

If you are in a hurry, you're in the wrong place.

Unashamedly, unabashedly we are fans of Slow Travel in the countryside, in the city.

Slow Travel and Planeta.com

Planeta.com has long touted the motto 'think smart, travel slow' as a means of making the most of engaging, experiential tourism. Today the notion of slow travel is more popular than ever. Of course it took some time.

Slow travel allows visitors to enjoy more than the adrenaline kick of racing through a foreign landscape. Slow travel encourages person-to-person contact and a deeper appreciation of people and place. It allows experiences that can be enjoyed rather than running from one destination to another without savoring the journey. If you are seeking experiential tourism, use common sense ... heck, use all of your senses.

For those visiting indigenous communities, giving yourself extra time allows you the chance to appreciate the subtleties that you otherwise miss.

Want to get more for you money? Slow down! The chief expense for most travelers is transportation, so if you slow down, you can go further. Travelers with a limited budget often try to cram in as much as possible. Yes, it's easy to see a lot in a short period of time, but odds are you will run yourself ragged.
Planeta.com siempre ha promocionado el lema de "piensa inteligente, viaja lento" como una forma de aprovechar al máximo la experiencia del turismo, como una vivencia. Hoy en día la noción de viaje lento es más popular que nunca. Por supuesto, tomó algún tiempo.

Slow Travel permite a los visitantes disfrutar más que solo de la adrenalina de las prisas por conocer un paisaje novedoso. Slow Travel alienta el contacto de persona-a-persona y una apreciación más profunda de la gente y el lugar. Permite que las experiencias se puedan disfrutar en lugar de correr de un destino a otro sin saborear el viaje. Si usted está buscando el turismo vivencial, use su sentido común ... mejor aún, utilice todos sus sentidos.

Para aquellos que visitan las comunidades indígenas, dar el tiempo suficiente permite apreciar sutilezas que de lo contrario se pierderian.

¿Quieren aprovechar al máximo su presupuesto? ¡bajen el ritmo! El gasto principal para la mayoría de los viajeros es el transporte, así que si usted reduce la velocidad, puede llegar más lejos. Los viajeros con un presupuesto limitado, a menudo tratan de retacar todo lo posible. Sí, es muy fácil ver mucho en un corto período de tiempo, pero lo más probable es que queden hechos trizas, sin haber conocido su esencia.
Planeta.com propagiert seit langem das Motto "denk nach, reise langsam" als Möglichkeit das meiste aus einem fesselnden und erlebnisreichen Tourismus zu machen. das Beste aus engaging, Erlebnispädagogik Tourismus. Heute ist der Begriff des langsamen Reisens beliebter denn je. Natürlich dauerte das einige Zeit.

Slow Travel ermöglicht es den Besuchern, mehr als den Adrenalin-Kick des Hetzens durch eine fremde Landschaft zu genießen. Slow Travel ermutigt Kontakte zwischen Menschen und ein tieferes Verständni von Mensch und Ort. Es ermöglicht es, Erfahrungen zu genießen anstatt von Reiseziel zu Reiseziel zu rennen ohne die Reise zu genießen. Wenn Sie auf der Suche nach einem erlebnisreichen Tourismus sind, benutzen Sie ihren gesunden Menschenverstand - nutzen Sie alle Ihre Sinne.

Für die Besucher indigener Gemeinschaften: Wenn Sie sich ein ausreichend zusätzliche Zeit einplanen, haben Sie die Möglichkeit, die Feinheiten zu erleben, die Sie sonst verpassen würden.

Möchten Sie mehr bekommen für Ihr Geld? Machen Sie langsam! Der Löwenanteil einer Reise ist meist der Transport. Wenn Sie also langsamer unterwegs sind, kommen Sie weiter. Reisende mit einem begrenzten Budget versuchen häufig, so viel wie möglich unterzubringen. Ja, es ist einfach viel in kurzer Zeit zu sehen, aber Sie laufen Gefahr, sich dabei aufzureiben.
Planeta.com har länge hyllat mottot "Tänk smart, res långsamt" som ett sätt att göra det bästa av engagerande upplevelseturism. Idag är begreppet "Slow Travel" mer populär än någonsin. Naturligtvis, tog det lite tid.

Genom "Slow Travel" kan besökare njuta av mer än adrenalinkicken att rusa genom ett främmande landskap. "Slow Travel" uppmuntrar person-till-person kontakt och en djupare förståelse för människor och plats. Det tillåter att upplevelser kan avnjutas, snarare än att köra ifrån en destination till en annan utan att smaka på resan.
Om du söker upplevelseturism, använd sunt förnuft ... För tusan, använd alla dina sinnen.

För de som besöker lokalbefolkningen, ge dig själv extra tid. Detta ger dig chansen att uppskatta nyanser som du annars missar.

Vill du maximera värdet av dina utgifter? Sakta ner! Den främsta kostnaden för de flesta resenärer är transport, så om du saktar ner kan du resa mer. Resenärer med en begränsad budget försöker ofta att klämma in så mycket som möjligt. Ja, det är lätt att se mycket på kort tid, men oddsen är att du kommer att köra dig själv trasig och missa massor.

Quotes

Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.
- Steven Wright

There’s more to life than increasing its speed.
- Mahatma Gandhi

The journey is more important than the destination because there's so much more in between.
- Bill King, Bill King remembers his years as a tourism operator

A lot of tourists have a consumer attitude -- what can I get, instead of what can I learn. We have to put aside our own cultural biases and learn as much as possible from the people we visit. I find that if you stay long enough, learn the language, you get a sense of who locals are as people.
- Clay Hubbs, publisher of Transitions Abroad, quoted in Rethinking Tourism

Welcome to a calmer world, a place to celebrate pleasure over pressure, quality of quantity and mindfulness over mindlessness - the online equivalent of a long, deep breath.
- Martin Hughes


Translating: I find that if you stay long enough, learn the language, you get a sense of who locals are as people.

Spanish: Me parece que si te quedas el tiempo suficiente, aprender el idioma, consigues una idea de lo quien son la gente local son como personas.
