A word about “Tramping”

Tramping is a Czech expression that is difficult to translate into English. It’s an activity that is truly it’s own thing, and type of tradition.
The American Wild West is where it takes its inspiration from, with the romantic notion of cowboys sitting around their campfires out on the trails. It’s something like camping in that it’s outdoors and takes place on riverbanks, or in fields or forests. They set up tents, build bonfires, eat and drink. There are always a few people with guitars and there’s music and singing.  It's different than camping, in that it’s not held in designated campgrounds, but areas that are traditionally Tramping settlements. It’s generally a large group of people, usually many families, who meet and spend the weekend together out of the city in the Great Outdoors.
