I recently read a term that I think describes how I like to travel – slow travel. I like to stay in one place for a period of time, get to know the city, meet locals, and learn the language. And from what I’ve read out in the blog-o-sphere, I’m not the only one.
A great way to find out what’s going on in a city or region is to attend local markets. Markets are an especially great way to discover regional foods and art. And people are there to sell stuff, crafts, food, wine, clothing, so they are going to talk to you. At least that’s been my experience. You never know, you might go home with treasures untold, which could be friendship, honey, radishes, or big a canine kiss.
