Viaje

Is there any difference between 'journey' and 'trip'?

Thanks.

BrE answer: yes. A trip is short, a journey is long.

A trip to the coast (in England, never a long way)
A journey to Africa (from England, a long way)

An AmE answer would be different.

Thanks . I'll try to remember (the word 'journey' is longer than 'trip')

Pienso que ya existe un hilo sobre eso , pero no lo encontré

Como los otros dicen,

A trip is shorter than a journey

It must be why there isn't a rock band named Trip...

Thanks.
Journey is more used in the books and definitions of the a travel.
Trip is more used when you go to a short or long travel some place.

Here any examples.

The journey to the marvelous human mind.
I will do a little trip to England.

Have a good day.

I think if you went to England, that woult be a journey, not a trip, since England is far from Mexico.
