I want to ask someone that how was his journey but the drive is too short to be considered as journey. What other word I can use instead of it?

    A common way to ask would be to name the mode of transportation .. "how was your walk?" "how was your flight?" "how was your bus-ride?" "how was the drive" - the suggestion 'trip' below certainly a good answer akin to journey's broadness, but naming the manner of locomotion has a certain extra something to it ...but I'm unsure why. – Tom22 Jul 3 '17 at 2:18

Trip, usually.

Occasionally I've heard "short hop", but that generally refers to short airplane trips (which are no longer very short at all, thanks to the security lines).


An alternative answer could be a jaunt - Noun: A short excursion or journey for pleasure.

Usage - "The store is just a quick jaunt down the road."


You could ask

How was your trip?

However, if the person is simply arriving at your location from some other place, and drove to your location, you could also ask:

How was your drive?

Hope this helps.
