The extra mile (useful English vocabulary you'll hear in the podcast):

  • to make a reservation = arrange for something such as a table in a restaurant or a room in a hotel to be kept for you
  • to keep [one's] options open = to wait before making a final decision about something to allow for the possibility of having a different choice
  • a good deal = to buy something at a lower price than normal; a bargain

Hey everybody. I hope you're having a lovely month of July and a lovely summer. Maybe you've got some summer vacation. I hope you're enjoying it if you're listening to this on the beach, in the mountains or wherever. Today, I'm here with Matthew. Matthew, how are you doing today? How's your summer going?


Oh, good, good. It's strange when you live in a tropical place, it's always the same weather so the seasons don't really change.




I guess it's good. Good, as always.


It's like, well, what is it? Was it the Beach Boys that put out an album called Endless Summer? It's just like endless summer.


Oh, okay.


Yeah. Right. Okay. Today we're talking about a very, I guess, summery topic related to vacations and traveling and things like that. How do you make reservations when you're going to travel now that people can actually travel? Yeah. How do you, what's your, I guess your habits, your reflexes, when you want to book a vacation?


I think I'm probably a bit different than maybe the traditional way of booking, booking a hotel, booking a flight, picking a place to go. I don't get too particular actually about where I want to go or exactly when I want to go. I like to keep my options open by having more flexibility, then I can find really good deals. I'm really interested in finding good deals.
