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


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.


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.


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.


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