Students Often Confuse These …. !
Journey, travel, trip, way
If we asked you to arrange these travel-related words based on their long and short duration, how would you answer?
Correct order: travel, journey, trip, way
Last summer I went on one of the journeys to Istanbul. During the day I sat around the lobby and played billiards with my friends, and we were very lazy. Then we made a trip to the mountains, which was about an hour from the hotel. On the way back to the hotel, we saw a snake right on the road. Oh! It was very scary.
Shortly, I think one of the best things to remember about foreign travel is to see different places and people.
- Journey: travel from one place to another
- Trip: a journey from one place to another for a short time
- Way: a route that you take to get from one place to another
- Travel: general word for the activity of long visits

- on the way to the hotel, we stopped and bought something.
- I have booked a journey to Athens with my classmates.
- In a business trip, you have a chance to see other businessmen.

- Can you tell me the way to the hospital, please?
- I hope you have a good trip to London; see you a few days later.
