    How about "proposed going on a trip"?

    Your friend could invite you to go with them.

    "Propose" is a bit formal between friends. "Suggest" or "invite" would be better.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    But you can propose a trip.

    I suppose you can say that. But what context would you use it in? Were you talking about going on a trip somewhere and your friend suggested that you go to Atlanta?

    You can't assume that if a part of a sentence is right, the whole thing is right. I would not phrase this sentence this way- Teechar's suggestion works better.

    Kind of, but he was willing to pay for my trip (In this scenario only. He really didn't but this is what I meant here.).

    Tell me if I'm right. In your imagination your friend offered to take you with him and pay your expenses.
