Summary
When using test mode in Journey Builder, a "simulation" journey that is not visible in the UI is created. This simulation Journey creates activities on the _JourneyActivity data view. These activities do not correspond to active Journeys in the UI. This leads to VersionIDs being returned in the _JourneyActivity view that do not exist in _Journey view.

Repro
-Use Test Mode on a Journey, select to send emails during testing
-Query _JourneyActivity data view
-Results will be returned from the use of Test Mode (versionID will be associated with a "simulation" journey)

Workaround
N/A. The rows that exist in _JourneyActivity but not in _Journey are from test mode and can be ignored for reporting.
