Welcome to the Slow Travel Forums!

Slow Travel Forums

Slow Travel Forums are for the Slow Travel website and community. Everyone is welcome on our forums, but the focus is travel - slow travel. We might be able to answer questions about tours and hotels, but as a community we focus on staying in vacation rentals (apartments and houses that you rent by the week) and doing a slower type of travel. Come on in and join the conversations!

How to Use the Forums

You can lurk on these forums: You do not have to join to read messages on the forums, but you must join to post messages. Joining makes it easier for you because you have less information to enter each time you post and the program lets you know which forums and topics have new posts since your last visit.

You must give us a "real" email address: You must join with a valid email address. When you join, the forums email you with a link to complete the process (this is to be sure the email address is valid).

But you can hide your email address on the forums: When you join, you decide if your email address will be accessible to anyone on the forums.

Screen snap

See what is new since your last visit: In each forum, light bulbs show which threads have new posts since your last visit. Or you can look at the list across all forums. On the forums main page, click the FIND button and select either "New Since your Last Visit" or "Today's Active Topics".

Have the forums notify you when someone replies to your post: When you post a new topic, you can check a box asking to be emailed when someone posts a reply. The forums knows your email address from your profile and it automatically sends you a message. Or you can click on the Notify button at the top of the page in any thread to be notified if anyone posts in that thread. This way you can be sure not to miss out on any threads you are following.
