I started the Art of slow Travel as a reaction to the rise of ‘fast food’ travelling so prevalent around the world. I wanted to show how a normal individual, and not just a millionaire, can travel to places for longer than the now-common whirlwind country tours. I also wanted to show that you don’t have to backpack and be on a super-tight budget to do this. In fact, backpackers don’t always travel slowly.
But now I want to hear how you do it. do you have a slow Travel story? whether it’s two weeks in one city, or three months exploring a country, or even one or several years living and working abroad, it would be great if you could share your story with the readers of the Art of slow Travel.
Here’s is how you can do it:
- take a look at What is slow Travel? to see if your story fits the theme of this blog.
- Send me your idea and/or article using the contact form. because of google, it has to be something new and not simply copy pasted from your website. the articles should be well-written, of course. I do place a lot of importance on pretty pictures, so while you’re free to submit photos, I might choose to replace them with flickr creative commons ones instead if they’re not of the necessary quality.
At present, I am looking for 7 slow travel guest posts which fit the above description, and which will be paid 30 US dollars/post. As places are limited, preference will be given to inspirational, well-written posts about places which I haven’t yet travelled to or which haven’t already been written about by guest posters (check out this page and below to see which countries have already been covered). I’ll also give preference to posts which come with beautiful photos. Previously published material will not be accepted.
Articles should be around 1000 words long, and have a section describing your slow travel experience as well as one explaining how other travellers can do the same.
To participate, please follow the steps above plus 1) follow me on twitter 2) retweet this post using @artofslowtravel. if your article is accepted, payment will be made via paypal on the day of publication, which will be sometime during Spring/Summer 2012.
Please help me make this round successful so I can find more sponsors to fund future rounds. It’s a win-win situation.
