Title of proceedings Meaningful Spaces


In this paper it is demonstrated how combinations of multiple spaces are responsible for the perceived images and experiences of a contemporary traveller and how the geographic spaces interfere with the mental spaces and vice versa in the course of a journey. The paper is based on the data derived from field studies by the author, mainly gained through observant participation and semi-structured interviews, as well as by the findings of scholars in the field of pilgrimage and tourism studies.
