This chapter brings together two emerging research fields within the social sciences – on the one hand ‘work-life balance’ and possible conflicts between work obligations and family obligations (Guest, 2002; Hogarth et al., 2000), and on the other hand, the individual and societal implications of human mobility (Cresswell, 2006; Sheller and Urry, 2006). The intersection of these two fields that we will explore here is work-related travel and availability.
