Slow Travel: Conversation with Martin Hughes

Martin Hughes is the author of two new books that extol the sensory wonders of slow travel. The first two titles from Affirm Press feature Melbourne and Sydney.

Slow Guide Melbourne

Slow Guide Sydney

I learned about the books from Melbournian Tom Walter -- http://www.flickr.com/photos/tomwalter -- who told me about these new books that featured a burro on the cover. I checked out the Slow Guides blog and fell into a slow email chat with Martin who agree to join us in this online conversation.

Martin, I trust you have eaten well and sold some books at the festival!

A follow-up -- How did the Taste of Slow Festival go? Also, is this type of slow event a model for other places?
