    Re: travel?journy?

    'Travel', uncountable, means 'travelling in general'.
    'Journey', countable' is one specific act of travelling.
    We have similar differences between work and job, poetry and poem, accommodation and apartment/flat/house/etc, news and piece of news/news item

    (
    Of course I know 'our travel' is wrong but I don't know why. ???) It's not a question and we don't use question marks in threes anyway.

    Thanks in advance._I am learning English now.)Unnecessary.
    Capitalise proper nouns and the first word of every sentence.
