Ever return from your travels needing another vacation? Clearly something’s amiss. Enter minimalist travel.
The minimalist travel revolution is sweeping through independent travel circles—don’t forget you saw it here first!—and has become the cure-all for the all-too rampant malady of traveller burnout. Often misunderstood, minimalist travel does not mean travelling less, rather travelling with less: less baggage, less technology, and most of all, less planning.
Like minimalism itself, minimalist travel is more about abundance than scarcity; it’s about doing more with less, and enriching the travel experience by focusing on what really matters. The best travel memories rarely recollect how many museums you’ve crammed in, or how many countries you managed to zip through, but rather focus on the people and places you’ve connected with, the smells, the sounds, the taste—this is the heart of independent travel, and what renders travel so exciting!
Whether you’re seeking tips on how to pack lighter, avoid over-planning, or even how to simplify your life beyond travel, you’ll find the inspiration you seek with all of our latest minimalist travel articles.
