Share details of a slow travel break – you could win a holiday voucher | Travel

It’s hard to imagine a time when life was generally lived at 3mph – walking pace and the average speed of a horse-drawn boat. When the railways were being built, some critics warned that that the human body was incapable of withstanding speeds of 30mph. Fast forward – literally – 200 years and everything is done at pace; we’re always up against the clock. Which is why slow travel has become something of a movement, bolstered by the trend for mindfulness. We’d like to hear about your favourite ways of slowing things down a bit – whether it be puttering along a stretch of a canal, walking from village to village, camping in the woods, or going out berry picking in the local hedgerows.

If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.
