National Geographic Traveler, Smart Traveler section, “Slow Down – We’re Movin’ Too Fast”, by Margaret Loftus, January 2008.
Exerpt from article: “Pauline Kenny was roaming through a roomful of Rubens paintings at Munich’s Alte Pinakothek when it dawned on her. “Must-sees” just weren’t her cup of tea. She and her husband had been traveling through Europe, following the guidebook. “We’d go to a new place and work our way down the list,” she explains. But it wasn’t until that moment in a crowded museum that Kenny knew she’d much prefer to see the world on her own terms and at her own pace. That is, slowly.”
This is the Academy Awards of mentions for me. National Geographic Traveler is one of the top three travel magazines and I am very proud to have them write about the Slow Travel community!
What a nice way to start the new year!
