wall crawl noun [C]
UK /ˈwɔːl.krɔːl/ US /ˈwɑːl.krɑːl/
a tourist activity involving a visit to different walls in a city, one after the other, to look at graffiti or art painted on them
What do you do when you visit a new city? Try out the local cuisine? Check out the most popular museum on TripAdvisor? If you’re big on Instagram, you might be more interested in walking wall to wall to wall. “Wall crawls” are an incredibly popular tourist activity as murals and street art have long been considered the best backdrop for interesting #holiday pics.

homecation noun [C]
UK /həʊm.ˈkeɪ.ʃᵊn/ US /hoʊm.ˈkeɪ.ʃᵊn/
a holiday spent completely at home
“Our homes have never been more important or served more functions. They are our schools and our workplaces, and that can bring stress to our sanctuaries,” said Zillow home trends expert Amanda Pendleton. “A homecation can bring fun and joy back to our homes and give us some much needed time to unwind, reconnect and recharge.”

nakation noun [C]
a type of holiday where people do not have to wear clothes for most of the time
One of the latest travel trends is all about stripping things down to the basics. The “nakation” — aka clothing-optional tourism — is a fast-growing segment of the travel industry, experts say. Shirking that outer layer at nude beaches and resorts and even on clothing-optional cruises has become the vacation choice du jour for hundreds of thousands of free-spirited Americans.

Sorry you’re having trouble seeing the poll results. We’re looking into this now and hope to have it fixed as soon as we can.
I like homecation. I spent a lot of time on it. Don’t have to go anywhere. Stay the most comfortable, very cheap. Homecation.
I CANNOT SEE THE RESULT OF THE POLL!
“HOMECATION” DEFENITELY IS WELCOMED TO JOIN THE DICTIONARY, THAT’S WHAT WE’RE EXPERENCING AT THE MOMENT. SO CONNECTED TO THE WORD. AND IT’S FUN TO VOTE FOR IT WITH MY KID.
