    Measuring tourists' stress in colombia2021In: Tourism, ISSN 1332-7461, E-ISSN 1849-1545, Vol. 69, no 1, p. 32-46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Th is research aims to examine vacationers' perceived stress in Colombia. Based on the literature review, the following dimensions are examined: (1) transportation at the destination -including the variables lack of control, insecurity, cleanness, noise, temperature and space; (2) the conditions of the accommodation -including the variables lack of sleep, insecurity, distance to sightseeing, cleanness and the perceived quality of the room, the services and the food; and (3) the behavior and culture of the locals at the destination -including the variables language proximity, insecurity, the way the locals prepare the good, litter and noise. A quantitative research was performed, based on 651 foreign travelers in the capital of Colombia. The results show that a second-order model, which includes nine factors and three dimensions, presents the highest goodness-of-fi t indices. As a part of the conclusions, this paper presents the theoretical and managerial implications of the model obtained in this research to measure tourists' stress in Colombia.

    Social Capital and the Life Cycle Model: The Transformation of the Destination of Åre2009In: Tourism, ISSN 1332-7461, E-ISSN 1849-1545, Vol. 57, no 3, p. 259-284Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes the development of the Swedish tourism destination of Åre and its transformation from one of many mountain villages into Scandinavia’s leading alpine ski resort. In reference to Butler’s life cycle model, this evolution is analyzed and some historical turning points in Åre’s development identified. The role of social capital is added to the historical analysis, based on the assumption that there is a link between a destination’s development and its ability to reproduce its social capital. The analysis shows that the social capital at the early stage was, to a large extent, built by and around local actors which predominated the village. The transformation to an international ski resort was possible only by the entrance of new actors, increasingly from the national and international arenas. These new actors have largely come to play leading roles in Åre’s development. At the same time, the new actors’ different values and networks have impacted Åre’s social capital.
