Definition
indirect — while traveling somewhere, or in saying or doing something
  • I had planned the journey here to Salisbury with considerable care, avoiding almost entirely the major roads; the route might have seemed necessarily circuitous to some, but then it was one that enabled me to take in a fair number of the sights recommended by Mrs J. Symons in her excellent volumes, and I must say I was well pleased with it.
