Translation:Each journey lasts a very long time.
Agree. In addition, "... lasts very long" is not very natural-sounding English.
I would say we generally only use "take much time" in questions and negatives, e.g. "Does the journey take much time?" and "The journey doesn't take much time". In positive sentences it'd be more natural to say, "The journey takes a lot of time" or "The journey takes a long time".
You can't say "quite much". :)
So you can't say "quite much" in English? It sounded all right to me, but I am /quite:)/ not a native speaker. :)
