I just discovered this Esperanto caravan from Seoul (Korea) to Nitra (Slovakia) happening in July. Now that's what I call an international Esperanto immersion experience... check out that map!

You might want to translate "caravan" into something like "group travel arrangement" or "communal travel in Esperanto" or something like that - I'm not sure whether non-Esperantists know this piece of Esperanto jargon.

Interesting... Mirriam Webster defines caravan as "a group of people or animals traveling together on a long journey especially through the desert," so I'd say it works like that in English too. :) I'd be curious if anyone was confused by it. In any case, "group travel arrangement" or "communal travel in Esperanto" wouldn't have fit nicely into the subject line. ;)

Yeah, caravan isn't Esperanto jargon. Anyone should know the word.

Before I started being involved in Esperanto, I only knew it as the desert thing (well, or the trailer that you pull behind a car that has a bed in it) - hearing about a caravan would bring to my mind images of camels and deserts and local Bedouin guides, not trains and fellow travellers.

Agreed, the idiomatic english word now would probably be 'trek' as that has the nuance of a group of probably unrelated people travelling together from one place to annother. Caravan sounds like arabian trade expeditions from previous centuries or camping trailers towed behind cars.
