There are as many different points of view regarding slow travel as there are slow travelers. Our friends Monica and Chris Graff are simply excellent examples of people who enjoy slow travel as much as we do, but their interests and approach are very different from ours. We learn something from them with every conversation. So we feel most fortunate that Monica has agreed to work with us to share on MagoGuide some of their travel adventures based on her very entertaining blog Postcards from Polebridge.
This first collaboration begins with an excerpt from one of Monica’s posts about their adventures on New Zealand and a visit to Fantasy Island. You’ll see that Monica has a wicked sense of humor. This is followed by an interview we conducted (over a few glasses of wine) where we quizzed Chris and Monica on the particulars of their trip such as how in the world they found this place, how did they make their travel plans, what was the food really like, would they recommend it to others, etc. The normal questions that Team Mago has for our fellow travelers. We think that you’ll be surprised by the answers.
