Personal encounters are what make a stay in a vacation destination special, according to our thesis. The authors of the new Vorarlberg Magazine get to the bottom of the relationship between guests and hosts, present special places for encounters and provide tips and background information for discoveries in all six holiday regions.
An idea of what lies behind the topic was summarized by cultural anthropologist Theresa Frank in her essay “Why we travel”: “The conscious departure into the unknown always contains both opportunities and limits – and the possibility of experiencing enrichment in the encounter with the other. […] To seek encounters is to remain alive and curious.”
