Following this question, I would like to understand what is the difference between ramble and excursion? Does ramble and excursion have the same meaning? When should I choose to use each of them?
For such questions, it's best to look at dictionaries to see where the meanings overlap.
But in short, a ramble is typically an unhurried walk over an unplanned route, where the walkers decide as they proceed where they want to go and where/when to stop en route.
An excursion is an outing that can be on foot, on wheels or in a vehicle of some sort. It can be a visit to gardens, a museum, the coast, the mountains or any other attraction that is conducted by any means.
