    end is simply finished. The end of a story, the end of a romance, the end of a piece of wood etc.

    end up means that you were doing something or going somewhere.
    eg. You know that a friend was going out for the evening, but had not decided where to go. When you see him again, you could ask "Where did you end up last night?" or "What did you end up doing with the fruit that you picked?"
