frequently asked questions
What is slow travel?
Slow travel is a mindset that rejects traditional ideas of tourism. Instead it encourages you to soak in your surroundings and keep yourself open to new experiences. Quite literally, taking things slowly. Instead of trying to pack as much into a trip as possible, it’s about enjoying living in that moment and seeing where life takes you.
how can we work together?
I'd love to hear from you on any potential collaborations you feel would be a good fit. Please get in touch and I'll respond to you as soon as possible. Possible collaborations could include: travel and tourism campaigns, press trips, hotel reviews, Instagram takeovers.
do you accept pre-written content?
To ensure that the content featured on The Slow Travels is consistent with both my honest views and tone of voice, I do not accept pre-written content of any kind.
what are your sponsored rates?
Rates for collaborations will be considered on a case by case basis, as a fair representation of how much time and effort is spent bringing each and every creation to life, in line with a brands vision.
