Slow travel - sounds like a trip on Amtrak, but it's actually a different approach to travel related to the Slow Food movement. Instead of trying to hit every sight in the country - 14 cities in 14 days - you stay in one place for a week or so. Get to know the neighborhood, shop for groceries in the same store, have coffee at the little cafe down the street, meet the neighbors, then start exploring in concentric circles, ranging a little farther from "home". It sounds relaxing and peaceful, but what about those other 13 cities that you never get to? Has anyone tried traveling slow-style?
