General Rule
一般规则
Ok, as a general rule, in 95% of the cases, trip is a noun and travel is a verb.
一般规则即95%的情况下,trip是名词而travel是动词。
e.g. I traveled to Germany last weekend.
上周我去德国旅游了。
I took a trip.
我去旅行了。
You can also say "to make a trip," but this is more, it's a shorter trip that has a specific purpose.
你可以说“to make a trip”,但是这通常是短途出行而且有一定目的。
e.g. I made a trip to the grocery store to buy some milk.
我去了杂货店买牛奶。
So, in most cases, trip is a noun and travel is a verb.
所以,大多情况下,trip是名词而travel是动词。
When Is It Different?
区别
Sometimes, you can actually use travel as a noun.
有时候,travel也可以作名词。
e.g. Travel expands your perspective on life.That's a noun.
旅行能增长生活阅历,这时travel就作名词。
Or, if you use with the possessive.   e.g. My travels really expanded my perspective.
或者和所有格形容词连用。例如:我的旅行增加了我的阅历。
This is more like my collective experience of traveling.
作名词时,travel表达的是所有旅行经历这个整体。
And trip, when used as a verb, is to trip over something, when you're walking and something blocks your path, and you fall. That's to trip.
trip同样可以用作动词,用法是“trip over something”,表示走路时有东西挡路,导致你摔倒了。
It's also used when you trip on drugs, like on LSD, or if you have a crazy idea.
trip还可以和药物联用,如“trip on LSD”表示服用迷幻药后产生幻觉,也可以表示你有了一个疯狂的想法。
So trip can be used as a synonym for travel, but this is quite rare, and it's usually used for like a short trip.
所以trip可以作为travel的同义词,但是非常少见,而且一般只用来形容短途出行。
