Our recent trip to Burgundy has cemented our desires for slow holidays! Rather than rushing from place to place, we planned to have ‘at home’ days in amongst the day trips we made. It gave us a sense of belonging in the Village. Still plenty of activity but time to rest, sleep, talk and enjoy the sunshine.
In the height of summer in France, it can be tiring to try to zoom from one place to another. So on this visit, we rarely pre-booked any activities, and just let ourselves be guided by how we were feeling, how tired or hot we were. There were days we did very little except enjoy the company of friends and eat great food.
Allowing yourself permission to not have to ‘do’ everything is simply wonderful.
