If you’re reading my blog, you are probably one too. No, it’s not someone yelling “hold the door!” It’s a person who loves the road, loves to travel.
I enjoy learning new words almost as much as I love to travel, so I was excited to see a fascinating article on Hopscotch the Globe listing 25 words every traveller should have in their vocabulary, several I wasn’t familiar with (they haven’t shown up in any crossword puzzles lately).
I already knew I suffered from wanderlust, but now I can say that I frequently experience fernweh, a craving to perigrinate. I love the feeling of resfeber as I prepare for the next trip. I look forward to the selcouth feelings I derive from a dérive.
No sooner am I home than I begin planning the next trip, hopefully one to the northeastern states of the US this fall. We have already booked two cruises for next year: the Panama Canal with Crystal Cruises and the Mississippi River with American Cruise Lines. We especially enjoy river cruises, as we learn so much of the history and culture of the lands we slowly pass by. It’s hard to wait!
