Summary/Abstract: The article discusses a hundred names for people who are about to undertake a journey or are currently on the road, either of their own volition or, due to forces beyond their control, compelled to set out for a journey, leave their place of dwelling, or leave their home, country and family behind. Moreover, the author categorizes the various travelers and points to the semantic and value‑judgment metamorphoses which those names have undergone in the past two hundred years.
