Happy Christmas.


I have another example without the word recorrer.

The guide took us around of the museum when I went to the Mexican's ruins.

I looked around the Chiapas's cascade when together with my family the last summer.

I don't know if my examples are correct.

Here another ones.


I looked around in winter the Merida city with my family.

I appreciate your support anyhow, if I've mistakes, please you don't hesitate to correcting me in anything.

Have day.

R at the end of a word sounds soft. Try to join this 'r' with the following word (startig with a vowel):

ir a - ira (you don't say 'irra')
pasear en - pasearen (not pasearren).

A 'r' following l,n and s sounds "vibrante":

Alrededor
Enrique
Desrizar.

I hope it helps.

I think that what you are thinking of is this.......
-Voy a darle un recorrido a mi país.

Which would mean that you will be traveling around the country.

-Voy a darle el recorrido al mundo.

Which would mean that you are going to travel around the world.

Is this what you were referring to?

Well, sort of. I looked at the "to travel" part of the definition, and was thinking that I always say "viajar" when I mean "to travel". So I wondered.... But it is starting to make sense to me that "recorrer" has more of a searching/wandering/scouring the earth kind of meaning.....

Interestingly enough, if you know me and that I am rather religious, it occurred to me that there is a verse in the Bible that talks about the eyes of God "moving to and fro throughout the earth", and it occurred to me that it might be that same meaning for "recorrer" in Spanish. So I checked a couple of Spanish Bible translations (2 Chronicles 16:9) and in "La Biblia de las Americas" and in the Nueva Versión Internacional, the word "recorrer" IS used (Yay Lou Ann ... ). It is not, however, used in the Reina Valera (similar to the King James in English). Interesting..... (to me, anyway)...
