Abstract

This paper puts forward a theoretical framework of existential well-being that incorporates the twin human drives towards stability and adventure. Todres & Galvin (2011) were inspired to develop the dwelling/mobility framework by Heidegger’s notion of Gegnet (translation: “abiding expanse”). The paper will employ examples of tourist practices that reveal dwelling and mobility to be simultaneously intertwined. In so doing it will highlight the blurred boundaries between home and away and will demonstrate the continued relevance of existential philosophy to understanding the tourist experience.
