Journey, Trip, Tour or just Travel

It's always hard to use them, isn't it? OK, let's see if we can do something to clarify the differences.

Travel: go from one place to another by car, bus, plane, ... It's usually a verb.
      Peter travelled over 100 miles to see the performance.

Journey: when you travel from one place to another.
      Did you have a good journey?

Trip: when you go to a place for a short time and then come back.
      How was your trip to London?

Tour: when you visit lots of places in the same city or country.
      My neighbours are on a tour of Europe.
