The first question my mother asks me when she calls over the weekend is, which country? Because she knows are daughter is a wanderlust and is often abroad exploring some unknown city somewhere in Europe. I am fortunate to live in England where the rest of Europe is at my finger tip to wander and explore at will. It is easy for me to enjoy holidays in Europe because it is close and affordable compared to other places. For me it’s a true privilege to be able to travel as often as I do but I can’t say all my travels are ‘slow holidays’.

What is are Slow Holidays?

In this day and age, we all seem to be in a hurry in all aspects and sadly holidays too. I am totally guilty of this because in my many weekenders I am often looking to explore as much as possible. The only issue with that is I end up missing out on some ‘lesser-taken’ paths on a destination. Slow Holidays are those where you take the time to enjoy the local life as well as the cuisine. Inntravel is an expert at self-guided holidays; be it a walking holiday or cycling.

At the end of the month I am taking my parents to Tuscany for a much-needed Slow and Relaxed holiday. If there is one thing I love doing whilst on holiday is taking pictures of the destinations and sharing on Instagram. Unfortunately for me my pictures are not the best quality so I invested in a proper camera. The issue with that was now I needed to learn how to operate the camera in more than the automatic mode. When the opportunity arose to attend the Inntravel Master Class run by Steve Davey I was thrilled and quickly applied. I can confidently say I picked up a lot of tips especially when he started giving pointers on our pictures. For the Tuscany holiday I am hoping to apply some the tips I picked up from the master class.

Looking through my pictures and thinking of the best travel photo in Europe that I have, is Kutna Hora. On my recent trip to Prague I took a day trip to Kutna Hora where I captured St. Barbara’s church. This trip is memorable to me because it was absolutely freezing and we walked all around Kutna Hora. It was a trip I feel that encapsulated the spirit of slow holidays exploring the city like a local.
