This article examines travel as a form of consumption behaviour. It begins by presenting some of the ideas outlined in Gilles Lipovetsky’s Le bonheur paradoxal. Then, using tourism statistics and statements of young people recorded in a qualitative study, it looks at how much Lipovetsky’s ideas can be inspirational for interpreting the attitudes of young Czechs towards travel.
