Examples of Hodophile in a sentence
"A total hodophile, she spent her free time seeing as much of the world as she could."
"The odometer on a hodophile's car may shock you — the miles add up when you're constantly on the road."
If you've got wanderlust, you also qualify as a hodophile. Many words define different aspects of travel, but few come as close to capturing the love of it quite like this one — not least because, in terms of vocabulary, it's a bit off the beaten path.
Did you Know?
Derived from an ancient Greek word (οὐδός) pertaining to roads and journeys, hodophile is a lesser-known travel term. That's oddly fitting, given that those who exhibit it are known to travel to lesser-known destinations.
