Hello there, travelers. I'm Marko. I'm Alex.
And we are the Vagabrothers.
And in this video we are going to share some tips
on how to survive a long flight.
These days there are direct flights half way around the world,
which is great, but it means flights are longer than ever.
So we're going to share with you guys 10 tips on how
to survive a flight, and maybe even enjoy it.
Number 1: Rest before you go.
One of the simplest ways to improve your travel
experience is to make sure you're well rested before you
take off. Even better, the night before you fly
adjust your watch to local time at your destination
to help your body get adjusted.
Number 2: Upgrade your seat.
Now most of us can't afford business class,
but a lot of airlines offer premium economy, which
you can upgrade to using cash or frequent flyer miles.
But it never hurts to go to the gate agent with a smile
and ask if there are any extra seats in the emergency row.
Thank you. Enjoy your flight. Bye.
Number 3: Once you're on board, get comfortable.
Take anything out of your back pack that you might
need, like headphones, water bottle, or a book,
and then store your bag in the overhead compartment,
not down below. Trust me, you'd want the extra leg room.
To get extra comfy, take your shoes off
because cabin pressure affects your circulation.
Number 4: Dress right.
Airplanes get really cold, and a lot of them don't
even give you a blanket.
They left me with no blanket!
So you need to dress warm and wear layers.
Jacket, scarves and wool socks are a great call,
but leave your skinny jeans at home unless you want a
ten hour wedgie. Ten hour wedgie?
No, thank you!
Number 5: Pack good gear.
Little things can make a big difference.
If you plan to sleep, eye shades, neck pillow and ear
plugs are crucial and easy to pack.
Noise cancelling headphones are great, as are Kindles
and tablets. Just make sure you charge everything and
download any videos, podcasts, or ebooks you want
before you fly.
Number 6: Pass the time.
Nowadays, most airlines offer free entertainment,
be it movies, music, or TV.
But sometimes you've got to pay.
Now on a long flight that might be worth it,
but you can always use the time for some
distraction-free reading.
Maybe get a little bit of work done?
Or you could always read that weird little magazine
they put in the seat back pocket.
Number 7: Eat and drink right.
Long flights usually have food included.
So choose carb-rich foods if possible. They're high
in insulin and will help you adjust to jet lag.
Stay hydrated by bringing your own water bottle.
You can get the flight attendants to fill this up
in the galley. Avoid caffeine and alcohol, if possible,
but if you do imbibe, you can use these kits
to turn a well drink into a craft cocktail.
Winning.
Number 8: Befriend the flight crew.
Flight attendants have a tough job dealing with hundreds
of people, and they usually just get bitched at.
So a little bit of kindness can go a long way.
You can chat them up when you're waiting for the
bathroom and remember to always say please and
thank you because chances are they may have a spare
meal or a glass of wine that they'll give you
if you are nice. And if all else fails, you can always
bribe them with chocolate.
Number 9: Move around.
Flying is not natural. It impedes your circulation,
which can lead to deep vein thrombosis.
It doesn't sound fun.
Avoid this by taking a lap around the airplane
or doing some simple exercises.
Number 10: Arrive fresh.
Wash your face, brush your teeth, maybe even change
your shirt. Little things can go long way to helping you
hit the ground running.
Well those are our tips. What are yours?

影片簡介

展開內容
長途飛行聽起來雖然是個有趣的體驗,但有時候把自己塞在小小的座位上長達十幾個小時真的是很痛苦!在沒錢坐商務艙、頭等艙的情況下,有沒有什麼辦法可以讓自己舒服一點呢?這支影片裡分享了一些讓你可以舒適度過長途旅行的小撇步,快點來筆記一下吧。

1take off0:31
飛機的「起飛」與「降落」千萬不能說成 flyfall ,正確的說法是 take offland 才對喔!因此影片中提到的 take off 就是「飛機起飛」的意思了。但有趣的是,這個片語同時也可表示「大受歡迎」或者是「大功告成」。至於 land 後面通常會先加上 at 這個介系詞,再接城市或是機場的名字,所以說 land at N. 指的就是降落在某處。
The plane is about to take off, so you'd better fasten your seatbelt.
飛機即將起飛,你最好繫上安全帶。

The boss decided to give her a bonus for her project really took off.
老闆決定給她額外獎金,因為她的企劃案大成功。

2compartment1:09
這個單字本來的意思是「隔間」,基本上適用於任何儲放東西的空間,像是 freezer compartment 意指冰箱裡的「冷藏空間」,而在這裡提到 overhead compartment
指的是「頭上的隔間」,也就是飛機客艙裡會有的上排行李置物櫃。另外,它同時也可以指火車裡的「車廂」喔!
I suggest you put that backpack in the overhead compartment, or else it's going to be very uncomfortable for the next few hours.
我建議你把背包放到上層的行李置物櫃裡,否則接下來的幾個小時你會非常不舒服。

3jet lag2:28
jet 這個字指的是「飛機」或「噴射機」,而 lag 則表「落後」、「延遲」,但這個字指的可不是「班機延遲」,而是「時差」的意思。
Due to jet lag, I have been waking up at 5 o'clock in the morning for the whole week.
因為時差的關係,我這週每天早上都五點就醒了。


搭飛機還會遇到其他讓人覺得不舒服的症狀,譬如說 airsickness ,也就是「暈機」。同理, carsickness 指的就是「暈車」了。而像這類因為交通工具的快速移動或上下晃動造成的不適則通稱為 motion sickness ,因為 motion 本意之一就是「移動」。
Oh my gosh, I can't bear carsickness. I think I'm going to throw up.
天啊,我沒辦法忍受暈車。我覺得我要吐了。


4bribe3:02
bribe 這個字可以當動詞或名詞用,這裡作動詞,指的是「行賄」或是「收買」。如果是名詞,則常會用到 take a bribe 這個片語,指的是「受賄」。而它還有一個名詞: bribery ,也就是「賄賂」之意。在影片中主持人有提到 bribe them with chocolate ,中譯為「用巧克力來收買他們」,因此片語 bribe A with B 就是「用 B 來收買、賄賂 A 的意思」。
In order to persuade Tom to support my plan, I bribed him with a meal.
為了說服 Tom 支持我的企劃案,我請他吃了一頓飯來收買他。


此外,有另一個字常常跟 bribe 一起出現,它是 corruption ,意思是「貪污」、「腐敗」。兩者意思很像,不過 corruption 的範圍較廣,可以把 bribe 想成是 corruption 的一種。
The news exposed the corruption of the mayor, which was a great shock for all the citizens.
新聞揭發了市長的貪污,而這對市民而言是個很大的衝擊。


5take a lap3:11
我們都知道 take a nap 是「小睡一下」,那 take a lap 又是什麼意思呢? lap 這個字有「一圈」、「一次來回」的意思,因此這個片語指的其實是「四處走動」或是「跑一圈」。有趣的是,當你的朋友做了蠢事或說了白痴的話時,你也可以叫他們 take a lap ,藉此表達自己的無奈或不滿喔!
A: I think Michelle has a crush on me. Do you think she would invite me to her party?
B: Oh come on, go take a lap.
A: 我覺得 Michelle 暗戀我耶,你覺得她會邀請我去參加她的派對嗎?
B: 噢拜託,你醒醒吧!


看完影片,小 V 真的是覺得受益良多。尤其在上飛機之前真的可以問問看空服員有沒有多的 emergency row seat (第一排座位) ,畢竟能在飛機上把腳伸直會舒服超多!你有沒有什麼其他幫助自己度過長途飛行的小撇步呢?也來分享一下吧!
