Hello LearnEnglish Team,
I would like to ask you what is the difference between a "stopover" and a "pit stop". If you say that "you broke your journey" does it mean that you made a stopover, a pit stop or something else? Thank you in advance.

Hello DoraX,

In the context of air travel, we speak of a 'stopover' or 'layover' when we land in one airport and wait for another later flight there.

A pit stop comes from the world of car racing, but people sometimes use it informally to refer to a stop in a journey. Usually it's a car journey and usually people decide to stop to use the bathroom.

All the best,
Kirk

I've made a mistake... I had to post my questions under the "car" category for I was interested in that context. Can I repost it there or can I continue here my questions?

Hello DoraX,

Don't worry. Please just ask any new questions on the page that deals with cars.

Best wishes,
Kirk

I have already flown two times in a year. The longest flight I have taken was 1 hour from Sai Gon to Hue in Vietnam and the next flight was from Sai Gon to Phu Quoc has just took 35 minutes. All of the two flights were so exciting and interesting!!

I discovered this website in my love-laptop last night, and it was the best thing happened to me in the last few years. This this is giant and huge effort made by masters. I hope this opportunity will eventually result in me taking the ielts and getting a fine score band. I thank the management team of this web.

The lessons, the practice, tests and everything is very fine.
