The term is a loanword from German: Zeit (cognate with “tide”) meaning “time” and Geist (cognate with “ghost”) meaning “spirit”.

Wanderlust

Wanderlust is a strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world.

A contemporary German equivalent for the English word wanderlust, in the sense of “crave for travel”, is Fernweh (literally meaning “an ache for distant places”).

Fern = far-off , distant ;

< von fern> = from distance.

Kitsch

As a descriptive term, kitsch originated in the art markets of Munich in the 1860s and the 1870s, describing cheap, popular, and marketable pictures and sketches.In Das Buch vom Kitsch (The Book of Kitsch), Hans Reimann defines it as a professional expression “born in a painter’s studio”. Writer Edward Koelwel rejects the suggestion that kitsch derives from the English word sketch, noting how the sketch was not then in vogue, and saying that kitsch art pictures were well-executed, finished paintings rather than sketches.
