  雅思口语里有个car trip的话题,其实,自驾游不一定非得是“今天天气好晴朗,处处好风光”,有些人就没有那么幸运嘛,可能在路上开进沟里(The car ran off the road into a ditch.),或者半路遇到野狼,再或者遭遇极端的天气,导航突然失灵(GPS stopped working),轮胎突然爆掉(got a flat),或者同行的人有人晕车(carsickness),有人生病,有人水土不服上吐下泻…… 也有“梦想很美好,现实很残酷”的情况,例如,有位小朋友去蒙古之前,在脑海里勾勒出了各种美好的图景:在草原上策马奔腾,蒙古包里喝着奶茶,围在篝火旁烤全羊,夜里仰头看星星…… 但实际的情况是,被蚊子咬的浑身是包,睡觉都要戴口罩,吃不惯当地的美味,加上晕车的折磨,简直是噩梦一场。一路都是戏的经历,不跟考官分享一下,真是可惜了:

  I’d like to talk about the road trip I had to Inner Mongolia with my mom when I was little.

  That was many years ago, but I could still remember it well, ‘cause it was actually a horrible experience.

  First of all, I suffered from serious carsickness. In my memory, I basically puked all the time when I was in the car. I felt terrible.

  While we were there, we stayed in a huge tent, you know, the typical house for Mongolians. That was a complete nightmare. The mosquitos there were this big! And they could bite your legs even when you were wearing pants. If I remember right, I got 25 mosquito bites in less than 5 minutes when I was in the toilet. It was really painful, I couldn’t even sit down, you know. And I had to wear a mask when I was sleeping.

  Besides, I couldn’t get used to the diet there. For example, the milk tea served in Mongolia was salty! The first time I drank it, I thought it was some kind of drink that went bad.

  But… well, on the upside, we could have a barbecue whenever we wanted to. And I had to say, the lamb chops and legs of lamb there were out of this world! It’s something I’d never tasted before. So I guess that made up for the miserable experience.

  语言点解析:

  road trip = (informal, especially NAmE) a trip made in a car over a long distance

  go bad = not safe to eat because it has decayed例如:

  Put the meat in the fridge so it doesn’t go bad.

  on the upside = when the good parts or advantages are considered例如:

  On the upside, the car does have a lot of trunk space.

  make up for something = to do something that corrects a bad situation = compensate例如:

  Nothing can make up for the loss of a child.

  After all the delays, we were anxious to make up for lost time.

  Her enthusiasm makes up for her lack of experience.

  A warm and sunny September made up for a miserable wet August.

  miserable = making you feel very unhappy or uncomfortable = depressing例如:

  miserable housing conditions

  I spent a miserable weekend alone at home.

  What a miserable day! (= cold and wet)

  The play was a miserable failure.
