#1 - "on a trip" #2 - "being on a trip" The extra word "being" that distinguishes #2 from #1 gives #2 a power that #1 does not possess: the power to act as a noun. So, for example, you can say "I love being on a trip" but you cannot say "I love on a trip" to indicate that you love trips. On the other hand, in most situations where #1 is used, you can also use #2. You should not do this though, unnecessarily, because it produces correct, but awkward sentences. For example: "I am currently on a trip" (good sentence) "I am currently being on a trip" (grammatical, but awkward).

Hi Brooke, this is an excellent question. It depends on the sentence but you can use both. Example - I am going on a trip/ I am on a trip. Example two - I love being on a trip with my family/ being on a trip makes me excited. Hope this helps ☺️

The preposition "on" has about 10 different meanings and usages. One usage is: - to indicate a time during which something takes place or happens, e.g., a parade on Sunday, on my birthday, on my trip (something happened) Instead of saying "Being on my trip" you could use "While on my trip..."
