Travel Tips: Enjoying short trips, the slow travel style

Many people say a picture is worth more than a thousand words. The easiest way to travel while capturing every moment is thru taking the road slowly, enjoying one’s culture, living life to the fullest, and feeling beyond sheer seeing the most wonderful sights even at the shortest time possible.  

slow travel

Several months ago, travelers became acquainted with the infamous “Slow Travel” concept so that they could veer away from the usual sight-seeing peek-a-boo itinerary in the hustle and bustle of the place they’re visiting.  

Slow travel advocates were not adamant in the success of their spiteful proposition: one only needs to travel at a slow pace much like what Armstrong did when he stepped his feet on the Moon way back in 1969. Instead of spending his or her holiday spree around France’s entirety, a faithful follower of the Slow Travel would spend a number of weeks perhaps months, inhabiting random areas, roaming around through cab or train and not thru plane, building a routine, and residing temporarily in selected areas. One could only wish to never let this dream end once getting back into the reality of life.

We list down the best tips so you will have a great time when you decide to visit Istanbul.

Sleeping Where You Party Will Make You Dizzy


If you’re planning to go to where the action is like Taksim but you’re intent on doing some sleeping, go to another place like Cankutaran or Galata. Taksim is indeed a great place to go because it comes alive at night. Just keep in mind that the music in the area doesn’t quiet down even after midnight as the sound systems of the different nightclubs have either been acquired 20 years ago or refurbished. They don’t have acoustic control. Since the local authorities are quite liberal with the noise, expect that your ears will be thumping as the club’s bass go booming into the early daylight.

ADC, Washington, D.C.


People wanting a little more exclusivity in their lounging areas need to get membership with the ADC (Above D.C.) to get into the mix with politicians and co-eds.

Of course, this means that Napa Valley is becoming more and more congested.  The good news is that a handful of advanced wine-making techniques have started in uncommon wine countries like India and even in Tasmania.  This is definitely good news to all wine experts and wine lovers out there because it means that there are now new flavors that are distinct to these wine regions; another reason is that as the wineries in California and France become crowded, we can opt to visit these other wine regions that offer more than just new flavors but also a spectacular scenery and natural charms.
