  • Analysis

    The formal word ‘peregrination’ expresses travelling extensively or wandering from place to place for an extended period of time. It also implies that a lot of the journey is done on foot. Therefore you would not refer to a weekend away somewhere as a peregrination, but backpacking around Asia most certainly would be.
