   schema:description "What feeds the impulse to explore new horizons? What makes travel meaningful? Julia Harrison explores the motivations of a large group of middle-class travellers to find out why people invest their financial, emotional, psychological and physical resources in this activity. She suggests that they are fuelled by several desires: to find intimacy and connection; to express a personal aesthetic; to explore the idea of "home" and to make sense of an increasingly globalized world.
