A closer look at society’s holiday and leisure time activities can reveal a lot about the desires and dreams that we need our holidays to fulfill. In this respect it is surprising to see that there is a continuing increase of interest in holidays that reflect our day-to-day lives – well organized and predictable. »Welcome to the club« investigates this phenomenon, by examining holiday clubs.
