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 connecting with it. A traveler now can simply stay above the surface, visit a place without getting to know it. But it doesn't have to be that way.

 

Instead of focusing on checking a place off your must-see list, instead focus on connecting with the culture, the people, the natural scenery. This idea is called "slow travel."

 

Which, in its most basic form, is a mindset that focuses on connecting more deeply with the place you are visiting through all of the senses: feeling it, tasting it, smelling it, breathing it.

Backroad Packers in turn focuses on helping guide travelers and explorers to have grand, sustainable & slow adventures.
