Chapter 6 Getting Ready For The Trip

第6章准备出发

 

Dear Mum and Dad, 

as I told you in my last e-mail, tomorrow I'm leaving for the Outer Hebrides. We're going to Inverness by train and then we'll start our bike ride from the Island of Lewis. We aim to land on islands like Taransay, St Kilda and Scarp, which the ferry can't get to. Our transport will be a marine research vessel.

I'm really looking forward to seeing these wild and remote places. It'll be a wonderful experience - you both know how important it is for me to do something for children who haven't been as lucky as me.

 

亲爱的爸爸、妈妈:

就像上次在邮件里和你们说的那样,明天我就要出发去外赫布里底群岛了。我们打算坐火车去因弗内斯,然后从路易斯岛开始改骑自行车。我们计划在塔兰赛,圣基尔达,斯卡普等地上岸,这些岛屿一般的渡船是不能到达的,而我们的交通工具是一艘海洋考察舰。

我一直很期待能到这些荒芜人烟、偏僻遥远的地方去看一看。而那肯定会是一次美妙的体验—— 你们都知道,能为那些不幸的孩子做点儿事,对我来说有多重要。

 

We've found a few well-known sponsors for this event - an English company that produces organic food, a famous chain of supermarkets and a publisher of children's books. This means we're going to raise quite a lot of money! 

I'll try to get in touch with you by phone, because I don't think I'll find many internet cafés on the islands!

I'm waiting for Shanya: she's got a new boyfriend, a boy from Norwich who is studying to become a journalist. She seems very happy and I'm really pleased for her. 

Hugs and kisses to both of you.

Samuel

KNOCK KNOCK

Coming!

 

我们找到了几个愿意为此次活动赞助的知名赞助商,他们是:一家生产有机食品的英国公司,一家著名连锁超市和一个著名儿童读物出版商。这就是说我们会筹到很大一笔钱。

我会用电话和你们联络,因为恐怕在岛上找不到网吧。

我一直在等莎妮雅:她交了新男朋友,他来自诺里奇,现在还在上学,未来想当记者。莎妮雅似乎很幸福,我真为她高兴。

拥抱并亲吻你们。

塞缪尔

背景声:敲门。

就来!

 

Hi, Shanya!

Hi, Sam. How's life?

Well, I'm a bit excited…

Hey, what a mess! Haven't you finished packing yet?

Well, I was waiting for you. I thought you could give me a hand!

 

嗨,莎妮雅!

嗨,萨姆!你好吗?

哎呀,我有点兴奋……

呦,真乱啊!你的行李还没有收拾好吗?

嗯,这个嘛,我正等着你呢。我想你会帮我的!

 

I knew it! OK, let's see… What goes in the rucksack?

Two pairs of trousers, two pullovers, a pair of trainers, some T-shirts and some underwear.

Oh, you were writing an e-mail.

Yes, to Mum and Dad. They were a bit worried.

And the strange thing is that I had a dream last night. I was on one of the islands and I felt as if I'd lived there for a long time… it was really weird.

Oh, come on, Sam. It was just a dream!

 

我就知道嘛!好吧,让我看看…… 应该带些什么呢?

两条裤子,两件套头衫,一双运动鞋,几件T恤还有几件内衣。

哦,你正写邮件啊。

是啊,给爸爸妈妈的。他们有点儿担心。

奇怪的是,我昨晚做了个梦。我在一个小岛上,感觉好像已经在那儿生活了很长时间……真的挺怪的。

噢,塞缪尔,别这样。那不过是个梦!
