Why Vacilando?

Travel diary writing in Mongolia (Asia at Dawn, 1994)

Website Vacilando.org represents a broad metaphor of travel in all senses of the term.

My choice of the domain name has been inspired by a few lines found in a book by Steinbeck.

In Spanish there is a word for which I can't find a counterword in English. It is the verb vacilar, present participle vacilando. It does not mean vacillating at all. If one is vacilando, he is going somewhere but doesn't greatly care whether or not he gets there, although he has direction.

John Steinbeck (1962)
