Emerging tendencies like cosmopolitanism and 'lifestyle' migration ambitions are part of a longer continuity of patterns in modern migration which developed and intensified only very gradually. Cosmopolitanism and global citizenship identities, of course, are not an inevitable outcome of frequent mobility, and serial migration has not always sprung from global consciousness. All migrant stories necessarily focus on the individual's life history, expressed in a myriad of different ways. Barbara Ingram-Monk's and Tanya Piejus's stories suggest how less tangible motivations could drive migration decisions; they also illustrate ways in which women's global thinking has influenced and articulated their migration practice. For Barbara the move to New Zealand, although demanding some difficult 'emotional adjustments', was deeply satisfying, but a return trip to England in 2006 prompted a different set of conflicting emotions about the country she had left.
