ESL learning: Travel idioms


Today, we’re going to talk about idioms related to travel.

Travel is something that gives us a lot inspiration, and allows us to learn about the world and ourselves. Travel also helps us to experience more beauty.

As the old saying goes, a flower becomes more beautiful when we say that it is beautiful.

And this is true for travelling the world as well. So let’s get started.

Let’s hit the road

This phrase means to start a journey, to leave a place, or to go away from one’s home.

  • Our bags are packed, and my cousin is here to look after the house. It’s time to hit the road!

  • We want to be at the beach by tomorrow afternoon, so we should hit the road tomorrow morning about 10 am.

Off the beaten track

This is an idiom used to describe a place that is not visited very often.

  • Even though Namhae is off the beaten track for most foreigners, it is a beautiful part of South Korea!

  • It takes courage to travel off the beaten track, but as Robert Frost wrote, “I took the road less travelled by, and that has made all the difference.”

On the road again

This phrase means that we are travelling another time, looking for more adventure, experience, fun, and beauty.

  • We’re on the road again, and we’re having so much fun!

  • I can’t wait to get on the road again!


Do you want to hit the road, get off the beaten track or get out on the road again? There are opportunities for you to work from so many beautiful parts of the world. Use English as your vehicle to get there!
