This book was released on 2016-09-01 with total page 1640 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Taking a global and multidisciplinary approach, The SAGE International Encyclopedia of Travel and Tourism brings together a team of international scholars to examine the travel and tourism industry, which is expected to grow at an annual rate of four percent for the next decade. In more than 500 entries spanning four comprehensive volumes, the Encyclopedia examines the business of tourism around the world paying particular attention to the social, economic, environmental, and policy issues at play. The book examines global, regional, national, and local issues including transportation, infrastructure, the environment, and business promotion. By looking at travel trends and countries large and small, the Encyclopedia analyses a wide variety of challenges and opportunities facing the industry. In taking a comprehensive and global approach, the Encyclopedia approaches the field of travel and tourism through the numerous disciplines it reaches, including the traditional tourism administration curriculum within schools of business and management, economics, public policy, as well as social science disciplines such as the anthropology and sociology. Key features include: More than 500 entries authored and signed by key academics in the field Entries on individual countries that details the health of the tourism industry, policy and planning approaches, promotion efforts, and primary tourism draws. Additional entries look at major cities and popular destinations Coverage of travel trends such as culinary tourism, wine tourism, agritourism, ecotourism, geotourism, slow tourism, heritage and cultural-based tourism, sustainable tourism, and recreation-based tourism Cross-references and further readings A Reader’s Guide grouping articles by disciplinary areas and broad themes

Download or read book Travel and Transformation written by Garth Lean and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-02-24 with total page 252 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Travel and tourism have a long association with the notion of transformation, both in terms of self and social collectives. What is surprising, however, is that this association has, on the whole, remained relatively underexplored and unchallenged, with little in the way of a corpus of academic literature surrounding these themes. Instead, much of the literature to date has focused upon describing and categorising tourism and travel experiences from a supply-side perspective, with travellers themselves defined in terms of their motivations and interests. While the tourism field can lay claim to several significant milestone contributions, there have been few recent attempts at a rigorous re-theorization of the issues arising from the travel/transformation nexus. The opportunity to explore the socio-cultural dimensions of transformation through travel has thus far been missed. Bringing together geographers, sociologists, cultural researchers, philosophers, anthropologists, visual researchers, literary scholars and heritage researchers, this volume explores what it means to transform through travel in a modern, mobile world. In doing so, it draws upon a wide variety of traveller perspectives - including tourists, backpackers, lifestyle travellers, migrants, refugees, nomads, walkers, writers, poets, virtual travellers and cosmetic surgery patients - to unpack a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination since the very first works of Western literature.
Download or read book Travel Tales Monthly written by Michael Brein, Ph.D. and published by Michael Brein, Inc.. This book was released on 2014-10-20 with total page 95 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Michael Brein’s Travel Tales Monthly is a monthly bookazine release of simply incredible travel tales, told 10 at a time. Michael Brein, aka The Travel Psychologist has made it his life’s passion to interview, now more than 1,750 world adventurers and travelers he has met throughout his world travels to more than 125 countries over the last four decades. “You wouldn’t believe the incredible stories people have told me about their travels,” says Michael when he talks about the nearly 10,000 travel tales he has amassed over the years in this way. Stories run the gamut of the good, the wonderful, and the magical, as well as, indeed, the bad, the horrible, and the truly horrific! These are--simply stated--great stories! Stories are told mainly in the present tense by interviewees, but, sadly, some are revealed about travelers who unfortunately did not live to tell their tales. These have often been related by weary, bleary-eyed travelers who felt that these tales should also be told. Into the pages of Travel Tales Monthly and then into the volumes of The Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series ebooks will go the formerly untold tales of close calls, dangers, and great escapes; the mystical, spiritual, and the paranormal; meeting people, making friends, and incredible hospitality; harassment by beggars, hustlers, and con artists of all kinds; formidable characters met and phenomenal experiences had; and much, much more—all in the form of about 200 ebooks covering all sorts of subjects, countries and themes. The intent of Travel Tales Monthly is to present collections of tales each month, introducing you to the stories as they make their way into The Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series in the form of completed standalone ebooks in the series. The telling of travel stories by Michael Brein via his Travel Tales Monthly as well as his travel tales ebook series is travel storytelling par excellence, but with one significant difference: Michael Brein is the world’s first and perhaps only travel psychologist. Thus, he tells the travel stories with a particular, unique psychological bent—there’s a lot of travel psychology behind everyone’s sharing of their experiences. With deft and persistence, Michael hones in on and ferrets out the usually heretofore unexplored and untold truly psychological netherworld that lurks just below the surface of most people’s travel experiences, bringing them into full view. For instance, what led up to a good or wonderful travel experience? How can we experience more of same? What was behind the horrific life-threatening or pickpocketing experience that got you caught up in in that one horrendous moment? Let’s unravel bad experiences piece by piece to see how this might have been avoided in the first place. Let’s unfold wonderful travel experiences to see how these may be repeated. What are some of the philosophical and life-changing insights gained from mystical experiences in one’s travels? What’s it like to experience your roots? How does it feel to be the first white person that others have ever seen? How does it feel like to be touched by a stranger? What is real fear like? On and on, Michael Brein delves into travel experiences from the standpoint of what is interesting, what is to be learned, and what is to be gained? How can this be made to happen again? Or NOT at all? Michael Brein is sure that you will be mesmerized and captivated by the stories you read in his Travel Tales Monthly and in his Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series. In this Issue (No. 4 Oct 2014): Michael Brein’s Travel Tales Monthly Bookazine Issue No. 4 for October 2014 contains among the best travel stories from Michael’s huge collection of about 10,000 travel tales that he has gathered in interviews with nearly 1,750 world travelers and adventurers during his four decades of travel to more than 125 countries throughout the world. The 10 travel tales that are featured for October, as well as each following month, include a fascinating mix of travel stories as well as a few brief vignettes. The October issue features such tales as The Hug, Les Ugly Americains, and The Red Dodge, whereby travelers get themselves into trouble by behaving and acting in ways that make them ‘Persona Non-Grata’ overseas. It is difficult enough to be culturally sensitive back home. But what are the consequences of being insensitive in a strange foreign land? What do you do? And, if that is not enough for you, how about Run! Run!, our featured story for this month about an ’ugly’ American, who, in spite of himself, commits a series of simple cultural faux pas in Kathmandu—contrary to the good advice of a friend—a ‘beautiful’ American this time—which gets out of hand and morphs into a very scary, close call involving his worst nightmare and a possible threat to his life. You are going to consider this month what goes into being the ‘Good, Bad, and the Ugly’ of travel. And you will also see some aspects of travel that you may not ever have considered before. And, once again, you will certainly experience vicariously those odd vagaries of travel-life that can await you and can suddenly appear just around the corner at about any turn along the way. Dr. Loren Ekroth, our guest contributor for this month, revisits us with some very good travel advice and ‘picks.’

Download or read book Time Travel in Popular Media written by Matthew Jones and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2015-03-13 with total page 337 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In recent years numerous films, television series, comic books, graphic novels and video games have featured time travel narratives, with characters jumping backward, forward and laterally through time. No rules govern time travel in these stories. Some characters move by machine, some by magic, others by unexplained means. Sometime travelers can alter the timeline, while others are prevented from causing temporal aberrations. The fluid forms of imagined time travel have fascinated audiences and prompted debate since at least the 19th century. What is behind our fascination with time travel? What does it mean to be out of one's own era? How do different media tell these stories and what does this reveal about the media's relationship to time? This collection of new essays--the first to address time travel across a range of media--answers these questions by locating time travel narratives within their cultural, historical and philosophical contexts. Texts discussed include Doctor Who, The Terminator, The Georgian House, Save the Date, Back to the Future, Inception, Source Code and others.
Download or read book Travel Tourism and Identity written by Gabriel R. Ricci and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-09-29 with total page 308 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Travel, Tourism and Identity addresses the psychological and social adjustments that occur when people make contact with others outside their social, cultural, or linguistic groups. Whether such contact is the result of tourism, seeking exile, or relocating abroad, the volume's contributors demonstrate how one's identity, cultural assumptions, and worldview can be brought into question. In some cases, the traveller finds that bridging the social and cultural gap between himself and the new society is fairly easy. In other cases, the traveller discovers that reorienting himself requires absorbing a new cultural history and traditions. The contributors argue that making these adjustments will surely enhance the traveller's or tourist's experience; otherwise the traveller or tourist will be at risk of becoming a marginalized figure, one disconnected from the society that surrounds him. This latest volume in the Culture & Civilization series features a collection of essays on travel and tourism. The essays cover a range of topics from historical travels to modern social identities. They discuss ancient travels, contemporary travels in Europe, Africa and sustainable eco-tourism, and the politics of tourism. Essays also address experiences of Grenada's "Spice Island" identity, and the effects of globalization and migrations on personal identity.
