Abstract

Pilgrim journeys are associated with spiritual enlightenment, strong emotional embodiment and transformative experiences. Contemporary pilgrim journeys encompass a range of values-rich journeys that impact on an individual's personal and social identity. One such journey that is often overlooked is the sabbatical journey. Equally, little attention is given to the mode of transport and how this dimension impacts on the journey. Increasingly, pilgrims engage with ways beyond walking or combinations of travel modes, including boat (Braun, 2017), camel (Dauphin et al., 2015) and train (Blake and King, 1972). This chapter brings together the sabbatical journey and train travel to present my lived experiences as a scholar on sabbatical who chose to circumnavigate the USA via train and, in the process, was catapulted into a journey of self-discovery and healing.
