"The term 'slow travel' is tied to a burgeoning movement to return to a time when life’s pleasures were savored, to a time when people appreciated the going as much as the getting there," writes Nancy Keates. This includes taking long, meandering boat and train rides, and staying for longer at destinations. Slow travel is "reveling in the landscape, culture, people and language rather than just passing over it all in an aluminum sausage," communications executive Ed Gillespie says. "It’s a much richer experience."
