Hello All, !!
I am currently working on my dissertation at Bournemouth University, I am currently looking at the focus of identifying some life events from experienced backpackers.
I am conducting some research based on the Coupled Backpackers and whether you feel less at risk when travelling with a companion than if you was travelling alone. When on your travels do you think you are more motivated / confident when travelling with a partner than if you was travelling independently?
I am looking to use your responses to examine the current tourist typologies Cohen and Plog in order to understand its relationship with risk perception. The overall aim of this study is to identify whether the categories within the typologies of Cohen and Plog are irrelevant when considering backpackers travelling with more than one person.
Also looking at finding out what motivates you to travel? If you already have a successful career, and are married? why decide to travel much later in your life?
If you could let me know your thoughts, it would really be a great help for my research!
Thanks a million!
