WE NEED TO CHANGE THE WAY WE TRAVEL
In today's modern age of travel, you can practically go anywhere. The world has become smaller, closer, more attainable. But in a way, it has also become easier to see a place without actually connecting with it. A traveler can now simply stay above the surface and visit a place without getting to know it. But it doesn't have to be that way.
Instead of focusing on simply checking a place off your must-see list, try to connect with the culture, the people, the natural scenery. Spend time learning about its history, its cuisine, its little quirks that make it so special. This idea of breaking through the surface is what we call "slow travel."
Backroad Packers is about inspiring fellow travelers to take the time to visit a place and explore it more deeply. To adventure within its bounds, sustainably & slowly. We do this through in-depth travel guides, insightful stories and tips, beautiful photography and videography, and even curated, personalized slow travel consulting.
If you are curious to learn more about slow travel, as well as sustainable and adventure travel overall, then you have come to the right place. So with that, welcome!
