Welcome to the second of the seven episodes with conversations with seven experienced digital nomads. In this one we dive into the concept of travel pace for digital nomads, exploring fast and slow travel styles.
Throughout the discussion, the benefits and challenges of fast and slow travel are explored. Fast travel is described as an exhilarating experience, filled with adrenaline and the thrill of exploration. On the other hand, slow travel is likened to savouring a fine wine, allowing for deeper immersion in a place and the formation of connections.
The guests also touch on the personal experiences and challenges they have faced with fast travel. They discuss the exhaustion of constantly finding new places to live, navigating unfamiliar environments, and making decisions on the go. They emphasize that slow travel allows for a better balance between work and exploration, as well as a deeper understanding and appreciation of the local culture.
Ultimately, the discussion showcases the varying travel paces of digital nomads and highlights the importance of finding the right balance between fast and slow travel. The episode provides valuable insights for digital nomads seeking to achieve a more fulfilling and sustainable travel lifestyle.
The conversations made me reflect on my own travel pace as a digital nomad, sharing the number of places I’ve visited in 2022 and the average length of stay in each location.
