wander about

wander about

To walk casually around (some place) without any definite purpose or destination. We had a few hours to kill before we had to catch our train, so we just wandered about downtown for a while. Could you please give me some directions? I've been wandering about for hours with no idea where to go.

to stroll or amble around without any purpose evident; to roam around. We just wandered about downtown all morning, looking at the shop windows. It's fun to wander around in a strange town.
