    difference in meaning

    1. The three friends continued on their journey.

    2. The three friends continued their journey.

    What is the difference in meaning between the two sentences?

    Thank you very much.

    Best regards

    Not much, but I would be more likely to use the preoposition for a longer journey.

    I think `continued on' is a phrasal verb which is used for a longer journey.
