Lesson 254: Travel words in Spanish – Why do we travel?


Travel words in Spanish

Why do we travel?


This is mainly a thematic lesson to learn Spanish vocabulary. Since we will be talking about traveling, I will list some of the most frequent reasons why we travel in the first place:

  • viajamos por diversión – we travel for fun
  • viajamos por ocio – we travel for leisure
  • viajamos para descansar – we travel to rest (to relax)
  • para aprender – to learn
  • para conocer otros pueblos – to know other people
  • por trabajo – for work
  • para visitar familia – to visit family / relatives
  • para visitar amigos – to visit friends
  • por negocios – for business
  • para asistir a algún congreso o conferencia  -to attend some congress or lecture
  • para hacer comopras – to go shopping
  • para estudiar / por estudios – to study / for studying


In a future lesson we will learn some more travel words in Spanish, or Spanish vocabulary that may become useful when we are traveling.
