I wandered in the desert thirsty.

I thirstily wandered in the desert.

Which one is correct to describe “Being thirsty, I wandered in the desert.”?


“I wandered in the desert thirsty” means “I, a thirsty person, wandered in the desert.”

“I thirstily wandered in the desert” means “I wandered in a thirsty fashion in the desert.”

Both are grammatically correct, but as I do not know how anyone would “wander in a thirsty fashion”, I am guessing you mean the first.
