August 22 – journey

☆  journey 旅


A journey is a trip, an excursion, an expedition, or tour. Generally, we talk about the difference between a trip somewhere and a journey somewhere as being that the trip is more lighthearted and fun, whereas a journey implies that the person is going on a journey and changing or developing themselves at the same time.

So, we can talk about a “journey of discovery” or an “inner journey” but we wouldn’t say, “trip of discovery” or “inner travel/trip”. You can also use journey when the trip you are taking is long or more difficult. For example, you might plan to take a journey across America. On the other hand, you might take a trip from LA to San Francisco, rather than a journey from LA to SF.
