Verbs of Motion + the prefixes О- / ОБ- / ОБО-

Let the letter "O" be a hint here. These prefixes are all about circling, moving around the object:

Они обошли озеро и устроились на пикник на уютной полянке. (They went around the lake and stopped for a picnic in a cosy clearing.)

It also suggests moving thoroughly around and throughout the whole place:

Она уже объездила весь мир. (She has already travelled all around the world.)

Мы объехали весь город, но не нашли кафе, о котором писал Майк. (We drove all around the town, but didn't find the cafe Mike wrote about.)

В ближайшее время придётся тебе обходиться без сахара и даже без кофе. (In the nearest future you will have to do without sugar and even without coffee.)
