Word of the day!


a strong, innate desire to rove or travel about.
In the first few seconds an aching sadness wrenched his heart, but it soon gave way to a feeling of sweet disquiet, the excitement of gypsy wanderlust. 
— Mikhail Bulgakov, translated by Diana Burgin and Katherine Tiernan O’Connor , The Master and Margarita , 1967 
A person susceptible to ” wanderlust ” is not so much addicted to movement as committed to transformation. 
— Forward by Pico Iyer , “Why We Travel,” Wanderlust , 2000 
Wanderlust is a German loanword that translates literally to “wander desire.” It entered English in the early 1900s.
