This paper highlights the tensions and challenges in current thinking about mobilities, migration and lifestyle. Moving is now influenced by, to name but a few, transnational ties, new knowledge and information technologies, expanding modes of transport as well as changing socio-cultural outlooks that illustrate the increasingly complex (re)formation of the everyday. We offer the term ‘lifestyle mobilities’ as a conceptual lens through which to confront academic thought on the intersections between tourism, migration, mobilities and lifestyle. Whilst contemporary research on lifestyle migration tends to address permanent and seasonal lifestyle relocation, it fails in understanding the temporal and spatial complexities and ambiguities that can be found in the experience of lifestyle mobilities. This paper will utilise the mobilities paradigm to begin to explore some of the ways in which lifestyle mobilities subsumes binaries of work/leisure, home/away and here/there.
