By adopting two naturalistic data collection techniques, in-depth participant observation and interviewing, it explores antinomians' specific travel patterns, motivations, activities, norms, beliefs, appearance and forms of social interaction. The main findings include that antinomians place an emphasis on independently organized, long-term and flexible travel schedules, non-mainstream activities, rejection of materialism and intense social interactions. The aforementioned attributes distinguish antinomians not only from institutionalized travel, but also from other forms of alternative budget traveling||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/6689||ISSN:||0160-7383||DOI:||http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.annals.2012.08.002||Rights:||© 2012 Elsevier Ltd||Type:||Article|
