(...just going to get some prosciutto, but I'll be back by dinner time.) A more useful phrase would be 'Ich wandere in den Bergen' (I hike in the mountains) or 'Ich fahre nach Italien' (I am driving to Italy), the latter if you want users to practise the preposition 'nach' + certain countries like 'Italian'.
There seems to be 3 variants of the 1st person singular form of wandern: wander, wandere and wandre. Which one is the most common?
Hi, I study german and i would like to point out that "I am walking to italy" should also be correct because wandere can also mean to walk
Duo said it means to ramble to Italy. that is silly. Even hiking is silly in the context of a country as the destination (vs a town or a point of interest)
In the Alps it's perfectly possible to hike across international borders, including to Italy. I tried, but only made it as far as Austria!
To "ramble" was probably shown as it's also in the database, due to being the preferred term in some parts of the world. You're of course welcome to keep using "hike" if you like.
