I’d like to talk about a time I traveled with my parents. We didn’t get the most out of177 our journey that time. If memory serves correctly, it was last national holiday and I went to Hunan for a trip with my family. Since the city where I live isn’t too far from Hunan, my dad proposed to rent a car and go on a road trip. We had never had a road trip, and it sounded like a total blast to go on a short vacation with a car. So my mom and I both agreed to this proposal right away.
The road trip was terrific on the first day. However, the next day, we were supposed to drive to Yuelu Mountain National Park. The destination was really far from the hotel, so it cost us 4 hours to get there. What was even more terrible was that when we arrived at the entrance, we found the road was closed because of a rainstorm a few days before. So we couldn’t get in for a tour. You know, it was almost dinner time. So it was really a bummer that we had to turn back to the hotel. In the end, we wound up178 spending another four hours to get back to the hotel.
Basically, we spent our whole day on the car driving back and forth179. There was no view, no food, just traffic jams on the road. The whole travel was as fun as watching paint dry180. It’s literally the least interesting experience I’ ve shared with my family.
177 get the most out of:充分利用，在这里指尽情享受
178 wound up:结果…相当于 end up…
179 back and forth：反复，来来回回
180 as fun as watching paint dry：形容无聊，像看着油漆变干一样的无聊
