WHAT’S THE HURRY?
Slow travel is gathering speed. To compensate for our often hectic, stressful lives, we are beginning to seek out holidays where we can ease back on the throttle. Maybe we should choose to travel by train rather than plane, or by foot rather than car. Perhaps the focus is on a small region where we can feel a sense of place rather than tackling frenetic If It’s Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium schedules. We want to take time, to smell the roses, the lavender and the frangipani. So this month, follow travel editor David Wickers as he departs the fast lane for something a little more leisurely, then join him for GH’S annual round-up of inspirational holiday ideas from across the globe.
