Small travel in the time of COVID has become incredibly important. Alexander Lobrano has written a beautiful piece published in The New York Times on 21 July 2021 and available here. The piece, ‘Making discovery, not distance, travel’s point’ is a celebration of travel in general, of small travel in particular and of the joy of discovering place. There is one line which sums up so much:
‘This kind of small-brush-stroke travel is intimately valuable, too, because it teaches us where we live and who we are. ‘
Enjoy this wonderful piece. You can also read some more ideas of the essence of local slow travel here and more about people and place here.
