Canoeing slows you down

Let’s face it if you wanted to get straight from A to B you wouldn’t be paddling along a meandering river. Sometime you can paddle 10 miles to get 3 miles as the crow flies. And who cares?

If you can have slow food you can certainly have slow travel. You will be using the time to enjoy the countryside around you whilst those in a rush whiz by on those roads you can hardly see across the fields.

With any luck your river will take you far from the crowds and the rush. Even cyclists will appear to be rushing headlong through the world compared to you. Even hikers will leave you far behind as you swan about the river without a care in the world.
