Our journey to Wales was lovely.
Our travel to Wales was lovely.

Travel is a verb, used to describe any type of movement from one place to another. Journey is the noun, but we also use (take a) trip for having a short journey: We took a trip to the seaside last Sunday. We also use travelling as a noun: Jim lows travelling. We use a possessive pronoun with travels as an idiom: Jenny is off on her travels again.

We use the noun travel in a general sense: She loves travel; in the plural: He has written a book about his travels.
