Moving to Australia seems to be a dream for many Europeans and Israelis, whereas Canadians, Japanese and Australians often dream about moving to Europe; that is, the ideal location is always somewhere far away from one’s country of origin. Within Europe, Ibiza and Italy are the most popular destinations. One could actually define the Westerners in Varanasi to be temporary lifestyle migrants in India who are hoping to become permanent lifestyle migrants somewhere else in the future. A comfortable climate is an important criterion for a ‘dream destination’ but these places are also believed to be tolerant towards people with alternative (here intended to mean countercultural) lifestyles.

However, although the Westerners in Varanasi are privileged in many respects, at a closer look, they are also very vulnerable. The ethos among backpackers is that their experiences are beneficial – giving them a form of cultural capital that, when they return to their home countries, can be used, for example, for finding jobs (Desforges 2000; Noy 2004; Caprioglio O’Reilly 2006, 1013). But what happens when backpacking results in lifestyle migration? The Westerners in Varanasi claim they have made the right choice by leaving the ‘prison’ of the West.
