Want to travel again in the post-Covid new normal on a budget?

Imagine meandering through the markets of Istanbul while sipping endless cups of cay...

Imagine floating down the Nile exploring sites of ritual, power, and mysticism of ancient Egypt...

Imagine being mesmerized by the setting sun casting its glow on the old city of Jerusalem...

Many people dream of experiencing the beauty of the difference in language, culture, and geography around the globe. But fears, doubts, and myths hold them back.

Such as:

It costs a fortune to travel and you need to be retired or a millionaire.

It's dangerous to travel especially as a solo woman.

It's impossible to return to your career upon return.

Traveling solo is lonely.

I am too old for this and so on...

In The Art of Slow Travel, seasoned slow world traveler Bhavana Gesota, who has lived in nine countries, worked in seven, and traveled to twenty-two more over five continents, addresses all of these concerns and more.
