The focus of this book is the emotional relationship that individuals and groups have with travel. Emphasis is placed upon the experience of travel itself and attention is given to a variety of travel experiences. Adopting innovative approaches to valuable material ranging from personal experience to empirical research, Gendered Journeys, Mobile Emotions opens up and illuminates an interdisciplinary debate about the gendered nature of travelling.I had to go from being materialist to minimalist in a very short time: if I didna#39;t use it, I didna#39;t need it, a very strange attitude for me to take. ... This was not as bad as it sounds: if you buy an HGV parking ticket you get a free meal, use of the washing facilities (including a shower) and the security is excellent. ... Overcoming the waterproofs dilemma was quite easy, a hook next to the door used as an entrance.
