    four day trip

    Hi teachers,

    I would like to know the difference of these two sentences, if there is any.

    A four day trip

    A trip of four days

    Thanks

    Re: four day trip

    The second - 'a trip of four days' - is possible but in most situations is very unlikely to be used by a native speaker. It feels awkward and uncomfortable.
