5 Classic Journeys To Replicate (PHOTOS)

Here at Black Tomato we've coined the phrase 'slowtopia travel' for the trips that remove you far from the immediacy of the modern world. We like to travel slowly because it means we're not in a rush or facing any kind of deadline; we're wandering through unknown places at a slow enough pace to catch sight of incredible new things as we go. And, simply to experience the joy that the freedom of traveling brings.

Here are our favorite classic journeys of all time. Each one is a testament to human curiosity.
