    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

    (

    Capitalise proper nouns and the first word of every sentence.
