每日英語跟讀 Ep.K027: UK company sells ‘bottles of air’ for homesick people

新冠肺炎爆發後,全球各地都深受疫情影響,近期英國出現2019冠狀病毒疾病新變種病毒,超過40國對英國祭出交通禁令,導致目前許多英國人無法返回家鄉。

The recent outbreak of new variants of the coronavirus in the U.K. has led to more than 40 countries imposing a travel ban on the nation, resulting in many British nationals being unable to return home.

英國國際行李搬家服務公司My Baggage近日推出「空氣罐」,讓英國人透過呼吸家鄉空氣,一解鄉愁。

In light of this observation, My Baggage, a relocation company based in the U.K., has recently launched the “bottled air” which allows customers to relieve their nostalgia by breathing in the air of their home country.

根據CNN報導,My Baggage推出新產品,販賣「真正」來自英國、蘇格蘭、威爾斯和北愛爾蘭的空氣,讓身在海外的英國人能聞到家鄉的味道。

According to CNN, My Baggage is currently selling “authentic” air from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, to provide Brits overseas to enjoy the scent of home.

空氣罐要價不斐,每瓶500毫升定價25英鎊(約新台幣942元)。購買空氣瓶的買家會收到附贈的軟木塞,方便隨時可開啟,慢慢享受家鄉的氣味。

Each 500 ml air bottle is priced at £25 (about NT$942). A bottle will come with a cork stopper so that people can enjoy the scent of home at any time.

除了英國之外,這家搬運公司還有提供客製化服務,顧客可提出地點,公司會前往指定地點裝滿空氣瓶再送到顧客手中。

What’s more? The company also offers a customized service that people can request a location and the company will go to the specified location to fill the bottles and deliver them to you.

My Baggage表示,他們曾經遇到一位來自威爾斯的顧客,指定要位在北威爾斯史諾多尼亞山區的空氣。

My Baggage said that they once met a customer from Wales who requested a sample of air from the mountainous region of Snowdonia Mountains in northern Wales.

此外,這系列產品還有推出限量版空氣,包括裝有倫敦地鐵、以及一間位於諾福克炸魚薯條店的空氣罐。

Also, special limited edition bottles featuring air taken from the London Underground or a fish and chip shop in Norfolk are also available.
