Hello Travelers! I have been running my “Views from the Slow Lane” blog for several years on the Slow Travel website, which I used to own and run. I sold the site to Internet Brands last year. I am still part of the Slow Travel community and like what Internet Brands is doing with the site, but I decided to move my blog to my own site.
Slow Europe is my current project. Steve and I are working on it, but it won’t be ready for several months. Slow Europe is going to be what Slow Travel started out as (but changed as the site grew and the community developed) – a guide to finding vacation rentals in Europe. There will be lists of my recommended vacation rental agencies by country and region. Agencies that I have used or worked with during my Slow Travel days. Agencies that I think we, as travelers, can depend on.
I will also talk about “listings sites” where you can rent directly from owners. Slow Europe will show you all the ways you can find vacation rentals and will describe typical booking procedures and what to expect on your vacation. It will also point to relevant review sites, like Slow Travel, to help you make your decision.
For now, I will write my Europe travel notes on this blog. Please comment if you have something to say or ask about a blog entry.
Now that I am not consumed with running Slow Travel and endlessly talking on the forums, I have more time to keep my blog up to date and interesting. Stay tuned!
