10 Beautiful Travel Words To Add To Your Vocabulary

Travel words. There’s nothing more satisfying than finding new words that perfectly embody an emotion I am trying to convey.  Are you a lover of rain? Pluviophile. Are you a woman who emphasizes a life of passion? Quaintrelle. Being a traveller and a self proclaimed writer I always find myself searching for new and beautiful words. I mean that’s how Fernweh came to be! I went on the hunt for the perfect word to describe my love of travel; that word that would grasp that ache I feel for places I haven’t even been too. I can always thank lovely Pinterest for helping me in my search for beauty but it never hurts to have all my favourites compiled into one post! Let’s start with my favourite!
