It seems to me that a combination of hCalendar, hCard and possibly
hReview would satisfy the functionality you're imagining.

- Each event would have one location, or at least one general region
with more than one specific location.
- Each specific specific location has an address, or at least a name.
Address, locality, region, and geo provide your "where" information.
- If you want to write notes about the places you visit on the trip,
that is essentially a review, be it a place of business, a concert,
- rel-tag could be used on more than one of these, allowing you to
specify attractions or recreational activities for each day of travel,
location visited, or both.

In general, I believe the main effort behind microformats goes into
defining concrete units of information (people, places, events),
instead of purpose-driven composites.  That's what makes it so easy to
present data that can be "searched for, saved, cross-referenced or
combined" - http://microformats.org/wiki/introduction#What_are_Microformats.3F

Many of the desired behaviors you defined could be accomplished by
relating the standard microformats in a travel-specific manner.
