Summary/Abstract: The aim of the paper is to examine the complicated relations between perception in travel, connected with mobility, and media. Travel, is seen here as multidimensional perceptual situation, which is not far from the perceptual experiences connected with the participation in social media and with the reception of mass media. Our perceptual modes of media activity have in fact the strong impact on the ways we see the surrounding while traveling. The dominating oculocentric paradigm of perception, characteristic for Western culture, is in new media strengthened by the experience of tactility and is transforming in travel into the experience which is multisensorial in a deep sense.
