    Wanderlust, whimsy, I don't think these words are enough strong because they can be describing a lot of "communities" worldwide.. The majority of people around the world use this word without a second thought so, being proud when called with this word would be a solution...

    Disney used this word multiple times in “Bells of Notre Dame” to describe Esmeralda. I didn’t even know what it meant till I watched this video. Thank you for letting me know.
