A journey is the travel or passage from one place or condition to another. Journeys depicts some of the different moods that one can have when traveling. On the Road suggests the enthusiasm and high spirits that are found when one begins a long anticipated trip. Day Trip represents the joy of a pleasure trip that is made for an afternoon. Cross Country on Route 66 suggests an open-air drive on course through surroundings of natural terrain on a classic American route. Promenade represents a leisurely, or stately, walk in a public place for pleasure or display. And Jaunt represents a short and energetic excursion, or journey for pleasure.
