Agreed on slow travel; the only way to truly see and experience a place is in its quieter corners and (yes) even the mundane moments that come with ‘living’ rather than ‘traveling’. Rushing through a place to tick the proverbial boxes is no way to really immerse onself in it.
As far as #2 hunting for good WiFi & workspaces, Workfrom.co has built a search engine that I’ve used on multiple continents — their connection speed listing and other important details (dog-friendly or outlets, anyone?) have taken the guesswork out of finding good spots for my remote work and meetings. They’ve got a Slack community that seems pretty enthusiastic; I’ve found folks to interview for blog posts on there and plenty of helpful travel advice, too. :)
