Who doesn’t love a good travel story? In fact it’s so much fun to be able to strike conversations with travel junkies who have good stories to share. What’s even more fascinating to me is the massive treasure chest of words that can be used to describe travel and the feelings associated with it. As traveling is all about exploring, it gives you wings to express yourself in so many different ways. Here, I’m listing down the travel words used in different languages to relate to the emotions one experiences when traveling. You never know you may make a friend or two using these words whilst traveling.
“Fear of one’s home. A feeling of powerlessness to prevent cataclysmic environmental change, apocalypse, etc.”
“The realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.”
“The restless race of the traveller’s heart before the journey begins.”
“To travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination”
“Wanderlust, a desire to travel, a longing for far-off places.”
“Something lovely discovered by chance; a windfall.”
“Wandering alone : marked by solitary wandering”.
Origin: French, medieval trope
An imaginary land of luxury and idleness
The idea that it is impossible to truly comprehend anything.
The freedom of being alone and having the ability to do what you want.
“Saudade is a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves.”
12. Yoko meshi
The peculiar stress induced by learning and speaking a foreign language.
