Nerdy Words for the Motorcycle Travel Blogger

The Grandiloquent Word of the Day features lovely and sometimes funny sounding little-used words or antiquated slang. I thought this particular word was appropriate as we head off into the weekend.

And for the other hodophile word-nerds among you, this post of 25 Words Every Traveller Should Have in Their Vocabulary may tickle your fancy, too.

Fernweh (n.)

Origin: German
Definition: A craving for travel. Being homesick for a place you’ve never been.
