Other words for go - synonyms for go

You can say it that way, or in this case even more aptly: That's how it works! Because going is not going to be the same. Sometimes you walk slowly, sometimes quickly, sometimes you run. And how is the movement? How the posture? What are the intentions and goals of moving around? How do you feel about it? What is the surface like on which you walk and what are the shoes you wear?

We can get around on foot in an incredible number of ways, and the German vocabulary gives us plenty of opportunities to express all these subtleties.
