A good friend of mine convinced me a while back that I should start a travel blog to record my experiences during my journeys and to showcase the photos I took along the way. I considered myself a writer for the first thirty years of my life but the last decade has been a dry spell for me so bear with me as I work at finding my words again. Hopefully I can use this forum to get back into what I always figured would be a lifelong passion.
I was looking for a creative title and roving or rovin’ seemed to be a fitting word:
noun: roving; plural noun: rovings
another term for rove3.
gerund or present participle: roving
travel constantly without a fixed destination; wander.“a quarter of a million refugees roved around the country”
synonyms: wander, roam, ramble, drift, meander; More
wander over or through (a place) without a destination.“children roving the streets”
travel for one’s work, having no fixed base.“he trained as a roving reporter”
(of eyes) look in changing directions in order to see something thoroughly.“the policeman’s eyes roved around the bar”
late 15th century (originally a term in archery in the sense ‘shoot at a casual mark of undetermined range’): perhaps from dialect rave ‘to stray,’ probably of Scandinavian origin.
