Austin Motel I love the description in the culture section of this historic motel in Austin Texas that was recently acquired by a new owner. The story is an American Dream and a real slow kind of cool. The History of the Austin Motel The history of the Austin Motel and the land on which it stands is not a story of corporate success with multi-million dollar profits, high end stocks, explosive growth into franchises, and financial wizards at the helm. It is nevertheless a success story. It is a success story of ordinary human beings—average everyday folks with normal... Continue reading

We are approaching holiday season and here is a guest post from the talented writer Amanda Kohr on The Joy of Slow Cooking Eating—and preparing—slowly is better for your body and your soul. By Amanda Kohr In our fast-paced world, we’re always racing toward the next thing. This may make us feel productive, but when we live in chaos we sacrifice the blissful benefits of slowing down. This idea isn’t new to yogis. Most yogis carve out a few hours every week to find patience, take things slow, and relish the here and now. The ability to be truly present,... Continue reading

New Agency | New Ideas on The New Traveler Wendy Abrams Editor On Slow Life New Traveler | New Ideas Most people don’t want to be labeled or categorized, but let’s face it, there seems to be two kinds of travelers. There is the tourist – the person that arrives in a new destination with the checklist of must-see attractions, and more often than not, stays at franchise hotels with predictable features no matter where they go. The tourist doesn’t get too far off the beaten path without a guidebook or a guide. What’s not to love about the salt... Continue reading

MY ACCIDENTAL GLAMP OUT I found myself having a great time in my own city. I spent the night at my sister's house and am allergic to her cats. I woke up scratching my eyes and I was having trouble wheezing and sneezing. I forgot the benadryl! She lives in the Santa Monica Mountains above Malibu and it was pitch black out. I couldn't leave and drive back to the city. Too tired so I snuck out of her house in the dark, coyotes lurking. I brought my flashlight and walked across the garden down the creepy dark driveway with... Continue reading
