When you wander around somewhere, it means that you are walking around in a casual way, without really having a destination or plan to go anywhere in particular. Wandering around somewhere you’ve never been before can be a great way to explore it and get to know it better. Of course, wandering takes more time than walking with a purpose, so you need to have enough time to take it easy!

Of course, it doesn’t have to be when you are traveling to a new location. You can wander around your own neighborhood, too. I like to do that when I’m walking my dogs. I usually take the same route, as I know how long it will take and it’s easy to finish our walk during my lunch break. However, on weekends when I have more time, I like to wander around more slowly, and choose different streets to wander down. It’s always a nice change!

How about you, do you ever just wander around your own neighborhood to enjoy where you live?
