    Default trip or journey

    My friend is going to travel to another country
    for few days and he will come back.
    Is better to say for him:


    1-Have a nice trip.
    or
    2-Have a nice journey.

    They are equally good.

    For me, "Have a nice trip" means "Enjoy your holiday/vacation". "Have a nice journey" means "Enjoy travelling to your destination" but it doesn't necessarily wish the person a happy holiday/vacation.

    You take a journey in order to arrive at the destination for your trip.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
