Do you ever confuse the words “trip” and “travel”?
- Travel = verb
- Trip = noun
A: Have you travelled lately? (verb)
B: Yes I have. This summer I took a trip to London. (noun)
- To travel – the act of travelling
- Trip – a specific visit to a certain destiation (countable noun)
- I love travelling!
- We should take a trip to the beach. The weather is going to be great this weekend!
We can see in Example 2 that trip is actually a countable noun, using “a” before it!
Bad: I have to do a travel to Peru. Good: I have to take a trip to Peru.
