FCE - Word pairs: trip, journey (and travel).
Explanation of how to use trip, journey and travel.
These words are sometimes confusing for students. The first thing to remember is that a journey is one way but a trip is there and back again. We also talk about a journey when we refer to the experience with the transport or what happened to us while we were travelling: a difficult car journey, a tiring journey through the mountains. Travel is usually a verb (and uncommon as a noun except in literature: Travels with my Aunt = name of a book). We use travelling as a gerund or noun and it means the act of travelling: I don't do much travelling.
Fill in the spaces with the correct version of travel, journey or trip. (More than one answer may be possible.)
