“Local slow travel, or LoST as I call it, is focused on leaving positive impacts locally. It’s an approach to slow travel which is focused on engagements with the places we visit, and how we might enhance both our engagements and those places.
Local Slow Travel (LoST)
I really like slow travel, as both a concept and an action – the thinking and the doing. For me, the ‘thinking’ bit is really important as our understanding of slow travel, why we do it and what we mean by it, becomes the foundation for our journeys. The ‘doing’ bit is, of course, about how we travel and where we travel – guided by our ‘thinking’ and our understanding.
Local slow travel, or LoST as I call it, is the thinking and the doing which is focused on leaving positive impacts locally. It’s an approach to slow travel which is focused on engagements with the places we visit, and how we might enhance both our engagements and those places.
This website introduces you to both thinking and doing – approaches and locations. We are all actively engaged with locations through our slow travels and this site explores this in some more detail.
So here you’ll find advice and information. You might be someone who is interested in this to provide foundations for, or components to, your own travels. Or you might be someone who is interested in getting in touch to discuss ways in which we can collaborate on the development of local slow travel opportunities in your region. There’s information and advice here for you all, no matter what brings you to the site.
Information on local slow travel can be found at the ‘Lost’ page by clicking the tab above or here. Information on becoming a lost traveler as well as ways of travelling, especially by foot, cycling or paddling, can be found at the ‘Becoming lost’ page above or by clicking here.
Ideas and experiences for locations to become lost in can be found at the ‘Getting lost’ page above or here. This page gets updated regularly so come back often. It’s a mix of my own experiences from many great landscapes as well as summaries of articles or books I’ve seen which you might find interesting.
At ‘Brian’ (above or here) you can find out a bit more about me. If you want to look at ways we can collaborate in my professional consultancy/advising work, check out the ‘Specialist services’ option on the ‘Brian’ page above or go to it directly here.
I hope you find plenty of things of interest – and get in touch or stay in touch. It’ll be great to hear from you.
