Not all those who wander are lost.

Kiwi Word of the Day #10 – Tramp

We’ve been getting pretty crap weather over the past month, which I’ve come to understand is anything but normal during an Otago summer. On a rare, blissfully sunny morning a few weeks ago, I had the following conversation:

   Katie: it’s nice to finally have a break from the rain.  What are your plans for the day?

   Tim: I was thinking about going for a trampYou interested?

Rest assured Mom & Dad, you don’t need to worry about the recreational activities of my new Kiwi friends. To be honest, I’ve been tramping around both the North and the South Island for over 6 months.

Tramp

Tramp – Kiwi for “hike” or “trek”; can be used as a noun or verb, and neither implies promiscuity
