Travel: Slow or fast?

When you travel for a vacation do you like the fast paced adventure of seeing as much as you can in the time you have or do you like to stay in one place for a while and see what it’s like to live there?

Reading this post about the Joy of Slow Travel reminded me that I haven’t posted much about my Brasil trip. That’s because I’m still overwhelmed by my massive collection of photos. On the Brasil trip half of the time was spent at a resort doing almost nothing, and the other half touring various sights. I found a nice mixture was perfect.

  1. It depends on where we are, how much time we have there, what’s available to see, and the mode of transportation. Whatever it is though, I insist on going at my pace (fast or slow at that particular moment), not someone elses — as in a guided tour.

  2. While I’m a slow travel convert I agree that sometimes you just have to rush things. One of the additional benefits of slow travel is that if you have a computer with you and an internet connection you can sort and upload your photos as you go… This saves the daunting task of organizing thousands of photos in one shot.

    Thanks for the link!

  3. Wow. CeoBlues. That was probably the very first blog that I ever read some time ago. It’s a great read, and probably one of the most underappreciated (in my opinion) sites out there.

  4. Hey Dan, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. For those that don’t know, Dan is also the President of the Internet.

    Mark, yeah, I know, CEO Blues is like an old standby, you can look it up after a long absence and it’s always there, gleaming in the moonlight.
