About Solivagant

Not everyone likes to travel in groups, and so it is with solivagants. If you've ever had the urge to wander around, whether in your own neighborhood or on the other side of the globe, you too may be a solivagant without even realizing it.

Did you Know?

Solivagant combines two Latin words — soli (alone) and vagus (wandering) — to create a term that isn't as strange as it initially appears.
