Being mobile in today’s world is influenced by many aspects including transnational ties, increased ease of access to transport, growing accessibility to technology, knowledge and information and changing socio-cultural outlooks and values. These factors can all engender a (re)formation of our everyday and as such, moving as and for lifestyle has, in many ways, become both easier and much more complex. Whilst mobility is not new in the social sciences (Cresswell 2010), the mobilities ‘paradigm’ (Sheller & Urry, 2006) or mobilities ‘turn’ (Hannam, Sheller & Urry, 2006) has gained considerable currency over the last decade. At the same time there has been a refocus on ideas of lifestyle within the social sciences. Mobility has become central to many lifestyle choices and for some, albeit still dominated by those in developed countries and elites in developing countries (Hall, 2005), travel and mobility is increasingly an everyday practice (Edensor, 2007; Hannam, 2008). Benson and O’Reilly (2009) suggest that the complexity of this movement, whether for lifestyle, leisure, retirement or amenity seeking reasons is not captured through such bounded terms and so the challenge becomes in ‘keeping up’ with the ever changing and pervasive nature of new forms of (im)mobility (see Sheller and Urry 2006). Using a lens of lifestyle mobility which aims to challenge current thinking on the intersections between tourism, migration and lifestyle, the seventeen chapters in this publication begin to grapple with the temporal and spatial complexities and ambiguities often associated with experiences of mobility.
