What exactly is slow travel and why is it a growing travel trend? In this episode, we take a deep dive into slow travel with Cat Jones, the founder and CEO of Byway, which offers flight-free holidays. We discuss how slow travel is an immersive approach to more sustainable and reflective travel. It's a type of travel that emphasizes connection to a destination through people, cultures, food and leisurely journeys.
We also chat about how slow travel is an emerging travel trend, how companies can avoid greenwashing and how we as travellers can take small steps to become more mindful and eco-friendly in our adventures.
