TRAVEL / TRIP / JOURNEY - what's the difference?

Publicado por Inglés con Diana

Hello students,

Let's clear up the difference between TRAVEL, TRIP and JOURNEY and start using it correctly when speaking about your plans for holidays. Below you can find short explanation and some exercises to practise. As always, feel free to write me if you have any further doubts. 

 

TRIP

It is a noun and we use it for short holidays.

e.g. I took a three-day trip to Seville or I go on a trip next weekend. 

We use the verbs “take” and “go on” with trip.

 

TRAVEL 

It is a verb or a general noun to describe the act of travelling. We do not use it for personal experiences. 

e.g.I really like to travel or World travel gives you a new perspective 

 

JOURNEY

It is a noun and we use it for longer holidays.

e.g. The journey takes 5 hours by plane or 30 hours by bus.
