Notes

Travel and journey have very similar meanings, but travel is normally uncountable. It
is used to talk about traveling in general. We cannot, for example, say ‘a travel’.

Journey, on the other hand, is a countable noun. We can say a journey.

The nouns beans, peas, grapes, lentils and facts are usually countable.

Foods are usually uncountable. Examples are: rice, spaghetti, sugar, salt, wheat etc.
