The distance that is traveled in a journey[2], or the time taken to complete a journey[2]; as, it's a two-day journey from the oasis into Cairo by camel; from Mecca to Samarkand is quite a journey. [PJC] Syn: Tour; excursion; trip; expedition; pilgrimage; jaunt. Usage: Journey, Tour, Excursion, Pilgrimage. The word journey suggests the idea of a somewhat prolonged traveling for a specific object, leading a person to pass directly from one point to another. In a tour, we take a roundabout course from place to place, more commonly for pleasure, though sometimes on business. An excursion is usually a brief tour or trip for pleasure, health, etc. In a pilgrimage we travel to a place hallowed by our religions affections, or by some train of sacred or tender associations. A journey on important business; the tour of Europe; an excursion to the lakes; a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. [1913 Webster]
