How do they call a trip that you sleep in one place and each day you go to another direction? Is there a name or a slang for this? I want to search for information about that kind of trip and I don't know what should I write in the search engine. (in Hebrew we call it a 'star trip')

    Are you talking about a road trip? Oct 31, 2016 at 13:16

    @KevinWorkman From OP's description of "sleeping in one place and each day going in a new direction", along with bling the trip a "star trip" (as in a shape with a fixed center and lines radiating in all directions), in guessing he means you make camp or get a hotel or whatever in a single, central, location, and each day when you get up you walk towards a new, unexplored, point of the compass. That's a guess, and it's weakened by the fact hats I've never heard of such a trip structure. Though I make a habit of it exploring my city....

It sounds like you're looking to do a series of day trips [TFD]

a journey made to and from a place within one day

At the end of each day, you'd return to your chosen home base [MWD] (not necessarily your home)

the place in which someone or something lives or operates

For examples, you could google "day trips in your destination"

  • But it sounds more like just one of the corner of the star... if you know what i mean :) isn't there another definition for this? maybe i didn't emphasize that it is a trip of several days.

  • I want to search for potential places that fit for day trips each day, not just one day trip.

    For example, searching for "best day trips from Paris" returns day trips to Versailles, Giverny, etc. while staying in Paris.
