Vacilando

Vacilando. n. A wanderer. A person for whom the act of traveling is more important than the destination.
The derivation is from the Spanish verb vacilar and is cited by John Steinbeck in his book, “Travels With Charley.”

Spain


Siesta

"A siesta is a short nap taken in the early afternoon, often after the midday meal. Such a period of sleep is a common tradition in some countries, particularly those where the weather is warm. Because the siesta is the traditional daytime sleep of Spain and, through Spanish influence, of many Hispanic American countries and the Philippines, the word siesta also derives from Spanish, originally from the Latin hora sexta "sixth hour" (counting from dawn, hence "midday rest").
