  • Hi, guys! And welcome to English Mania! My name is Antonia Romaker

  • and today we're going to talk about a very confusing set of words:

  • travel, traveling, trip, journey, tour, voyage and cruise. OMG!

  • So let's get to the bottom of this and try to understand the difference.

  • First of all let's talk about the word travel, it is mostly used as a verb

  • and it means to go from one place to another, to move from one place to another.

  • In other words it means to make a journey usually over a long distance.

  • After graduating I am planning to travel across Europe.

  • You can use expressions like to travel first class, to travel light,

  • that is having almost no luggage or to travel abroad.

  • Travel can also be used as an adjective,

  • that's why you can use expressions like a travel agency, a travel agent, travel expenses, and things like that.

  • When travel is used as a noun it presupposes an act of traveling, going from one place to another.

  • My husband and I share a love of literature, food and travel.

  • They offer a 10% discount on rail travel for students.

  • You can also say on air travel, on foreign travel.

  • Traveling is also a general term and it refers to the activity of travel.

  • I love the work but I hate the travelling involved. The job involves a great deal of traveling.

  • Traveling is also used as a participle and you can use expressions like a traveling exhibit.

  • And now let's move on to the second word - trip.

  • It can be used as a noun, mostly it is used as a noun

  • and it means a journey in which you go to another place,

  • and usually this journey takes a rather short period of time.

  • It's a short journey and you definitely come back.

  • So you go to some place and you come back, you take a trip.

  • The most frustrating thing about these words is that when you try to find the definition of a certain word

  • in a dictionary you find the other word, like a journey, inside this definition.

  • The trip from York to New Castle takes about an hour by train.

  • We are going on a trip to Norway this summer. Summer? Really?

  • You can use expressions like a round trip, a business trip, a shopping trip, a school trip, a trip abroad.

  • The trip went well. So you can take a trip for business or for pleasure.

  • Which one do you prefer? Can you do both at the same time?

  • Be careful, if you use trip as a verb, it has a slightly different meaning.

  • It means to lose your balance after knocking your foot against something.

  • She tripped and fell down.

  • Now let's move on to the word journey. As a noun journey means the act of traveling

  • from one place to another especially in a vehicle.

  • And here we usually mean the time and the distance you cover when you move from one place to another.

  • I love going on long journeys.

  • How long did your journey take?

  • You can use 'journey' a figurative meaning and say something like this:

  • A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. Wise!

  • There's also a very popular set expression - have a safe journey, have a comfortable journey.

  • As for the word tour it means visiting many places on a trip.

  • We went on a tour to Spain last summer, it was magical! Have you ever been on a tour?

  • This word can also be used as a verb. I toured Europe with my friends.

  • Now when we talk about the word voyage it is a long journey on a ship.

  • His second voyage led to the discovery of several Caribbean islands.

  • We are talking about Christopher Columbus here, right?

  • And this word, voyage, can also be used as a verb.

  • And finally cruise, it is a tour on a ship. This word can also be used as a verb.

  • We cruised all around Bodensee last summer. Okay that's it! let's quickly refresh our memory.

  • Travel is a general term, means going from one place to another usually for a long time.

  • It can be used as a verb too. Traveling is also a very general term

  • and it presupposes the activity of traveling.

  • Trip is a short journey, you go somewhere and you come back, a short trip.

  • Journey is the time and distance you cover when you travel somewhere.

  • Voyage is a long journey on a ship. Tour is a trip on which you visit many places.

  • Cruise is a tour on a ship. Okay that's it! I hope that today we have cleared things out

  • and now you understand the difference between all these words a little bit better.

  • If you have any questions write a comment, write your own examples in comments

  • it will help you remember the material much better.
