    Smile Last, Take

    Hello,

    In a sentence: My (The?) journey lasted/took five hours by car.


    What is the main difference between these two verbs?

    Thank you very much!!!

    Re: Last, Take

    With 'by car', I wouldn't use 'lasted'- there's an implied comparison there and I would use 'took' for that- it took five hours by car and three by train.
