I used to know this adjective in English, but now I forgot. It describes a person who likes to travel a lot. It's a one-word adjective that, as far as I remember, sounds somewhat similar to the adjective "hypothetical". That adjective would probably fit into this simple sentence:

She is quite __________________ , so she travels a lot.

What is that adjective?

    Usually, someone is peripatetic because they have to be (because of their job), and not because they like to be. Commented Aug 11, 2020 at 13:26

Well you have a few options here depending on the context of travel:

  • peripatetic - which is mostly about job and business travel
  • wayfaring - mostly to refer to travelling on foot
  • errant - more of an adventurous traveller
  • itinerant - someone who goes from place to place

Surely the first option fits as an answer to your question.
