People who peregrinate are constantly on the move, traveling from one location to another. You might peregrinate from Italy to Spain to France during your European backpacking trip.

The most common way to peregrinate is on foot, wandering from place to place, as when you decide to peregrinate around your city's various neighborhoods pretending you're a tourist. The word is a bit old fashioned these days, and it was first used in the late 16th century, taken from the Latin peregrinatus, "traveled abroad," or figuratively "wandered or roamed," from peregrinus, "foreign."
