Abstract [en]

This qualitative study "It’s all about catching the possibilities” by Erica Mogel and Josefine Ekenstein investigates the reasons why the respondents continue to travel on backpacker trips and how they experience personal development in connection with travelling. The empirical material was collected through interviews where the interviews were formulated through two questions that were based on the theoretical framework used in the study. The theoretical frameworks used are Pearce’s (2005) Travel Career Ladder and theories of identity creation by Giddens (1997) and Durkheim. Finally, the most frequent driving forces are presented to the repeated backpacking as well as how the individual experiences developing during the trips. The study reveals that personal development in connection with travelling can be manifested in many different ways. The greatest development among the interviewees in this study has taken place socially. The main motives for continued travel were to find a sense of freedom that the interviewees thought could only be experienced when travelling. The interviewee’s premises at home enabled this type of recurring travelling.

Abstract [sv]

Denna kvalitativa studie “Det gäller att passa på när man kan” av Erica Mogel och Josefine Ekenstein undersöker motiven till varför intervjupersonerna fortsätter att åka på backpackerresor samt hur de upplever personlig utveckling i samband med resorna. Det empiriska materialet samlades in genom intervjuer där intervjuguiden tagits fram via två frågeställningar som skapats utifrån de teoretiska ramverk som använts i studien. De teoretiska ramverken som använts är Pearce (2005) Travel Career Ladder samt teorier om identitetsskapande av Giddens (1997) och Durkheim. Avslutningsvis presenteras de mest återkommande drivkrafterna till det upprepande backpackerresandet samt hur individen upplever sig utvecklas under resorna. Studien kommer fram till att den personliga utvecklingen kan visa sig på många olika sätt men att den största utvecklingen sker socialt. De främsta motiven till fortsatt resande var att finna en frihetskänsla som intervjupersonerna menade endast kunde upplevas på resande fot. Intervjupersoneras förutsättningar hemma möjliggjorde denna typ av återkommande resande.
