The study presented in this chapter adopts 'meditative mindfulness' as the theoretical foundation to examine if day-to-day leisure activities involved in travel could lead to well-being benefits. It is revealed that the studied Taiwanese backpackers experienced mindful states during their travels in Australia. These experiences occurred during open-ended backpacking journeys, at a range of different types of sites and in unplanned situations. Two main types of triggers facilitate a meditative mindful state: aesthetic appreciation and atmosphere of tranquility. The experiences led the tourists to gain benefits such as peace, mental relaxation, stress release and somatic relaxation.
