Irene Lidia here, reporting from a calm village in the Canary Islands! 🇮🇨
This week, I’ve been thinking a lot about how we, as digital nomads, move around. You've probably heard the buzzword “Slowmad” floating around, right?
At first, I was all about moving fast - jumping from one city to the next, always on the go. Sure, it was exciting. But soon, I felt like I was missing something. I was visiting places but not really experiencing them.
Being a Slowmad isn't just staying in one spot for longer. It's about digging deeper, making local friends, understanding traditions, and letting a place touch your heart. It's about living a place, not just visiting it.
Traveling slow lets you travel deep.
And hey, there are real perks! Reliable Wi-Fi, less packing stress, getting into a rhythm, and saving some cash when you aren't always hopping from one spot to the next.
Some of my best workdays, closest friendships, and unforgettable memories came from those times I decided to slow down. Remember: it's not a race.
So, to all my fellow nomads:
It's not about how many places you see, but how deeply you feel them.
Maybe give slow travel a try. Let places become more than just pins on a map.
Catch you soon,
Irene Lidia ✨
