Graham's World闖蕩世界




  Most of you have probably read the book or seen the movie, "Around the World in 80 Days." The main character is a British bachelor1 named Phileas Fogg, whose objective is to travel the globe2 by only using public transportation. This is all part of a bet, with the condition that Fogg must complete his journey within a limited amount of time. Now, there is a modern-day Fogg on the scene, but his odyssey3 is much more challenging.

  British filmmaker, Graham Hughes, is out to do better than Fogg. He is on a quest to set foot in every country on Earth in just one year. Just like Fogg, this bachelor from Liverpool, England is going to do this all without flying or driving. However, Hughes is not doing this for a bet. Instead, he is trying to raise money for charity. Having only a budget of under US$30,000 and a video camera, he sets out on his 90,000-kilometer journey in Buenos Aires on New Year's Day. National Geographic Channel is there as Hughes takes his love of traveling to the limit in "Graham's World."

中文翻譯 


 
你們大多數人可能都讀過《環遊世界八十天》這本書或看過其電影。當中的主角是一位叫做腓力•霍格的英國單身漢,他的目標是只靠著大眾運輸工具來環遊世界。這全都是一個打賭的內容,而條件包括霍格必須在限定的時間內完成這趟旅行。如今有個現代版的霍格出現了,但他漫長的歷險旅程中卻充滿更多挑戰。

  英國製片家葛拉罕•休斯力圖要超越霍格。他想試著在短短一年之內踏遍地球上的每一個國家。就像霍格一樣,這位來自英國利物浦的單身漢將不靠飛行或駕駛來完成這趟旅行。不過休斯這麼做並非是為了一場賭注。相反地,他是嘗試要為慈善機構募款。他僅帶著不到三萬元美金的預算以及一台攝影機,在新年第一天於布宜諾斯艾利斯展開長達九萬公里的旅程。國家地理頻道《闖蕩世界》的系列節目將跟隨休斯,看他如何將自己對旅行的熱愛發揮到極致。

Grammar Check 


...within a limited amount of time.
(……在限定的時間內……)
a large/small/limited number of + 複數名詞多數的/少數的/有限的……
a large/small/limited amount of + 不可數名詞大量的/少量的/有限的……
注意:
"a large/small/limited number of"以及"a large/small/limited amount of"均視為形容詞,其後分別接複數名詞和不可數名詞,因此作主詞時,其後動詞應隨 of 之後的名詞作變化,也就是說"a large/small/limited number of + 複數名詞"之後要接複數動詞,而"a large/small/limited amount of + 不可數名詞"之後要接單數動詞。
Only a small number of employees are against the new regulation.
(只有少數的員工反對那項新規定。)
A large amount of money was stolen from the bank.
