M: And then you can say something about like international airports and we have different airlines and you can say that, okay, my city is not a major transport hub. So hub is a nice word. Hub. For example, like London is an international hub, because planes from all over the world go to London and from London, they go somewhere else. So it's a hub. Like transport hub. And Moscow also could be a hub because from different cities in Russia, if, for example, you need to go to the States, then you kind of first go from your city to Moscow and then from Moscow to somewhere else. So it's a it's a hub.\
R: That's if we were talking about cities. Here, it's a country, but it's the same thing like some countries are... Have lots and lots of airports. But you could use the same thing to talk about a city as well.
M: And then we have a ridiculous question. Have you ever flown anywhere? Well, but maybe there are some people who have never flown anywhere, even in their own country. What do you think Rory? Are there many people like that?
R: I don't know, it's a good question. I wonder what percentage of the population has been on a plane. Let's have a look.
M: But do you have any friends who have never flown? Who have never been on a plane? Yeah, I don't know.
M: Yeah. Because if you don't go abroad, you can just you usually fly in your own country. I don't know. So dear listener, have you ever flown anywhere?
R: Oh my god.
M: Okay. Give us the statistics. The stats.
R: Well, okay. So, here it says 11.1% is the share of the world population that flew in 2018. That's 845 million people, but that's just in one year.
M: Okay. Yeah. So if you have flown somewhere, you can say, oh, yeah, I have traveled all over the world, you know, and I've flown to such destinations as New York, as Africa, Madagascar, India. Yeah. Hello, Indian listeners. So yeah. And Rory said that I prefer the places over the flying. You see, so he prefers the places the destinations over the flying. So he enjoys the places, but not the flying so much. Or you can say for example, I used to fly more often, but now because of the restrictions I don't. Or I used to fly somewhere every month, but now I fly somewhere once a year or twice a year. Yeah. And then that Rory talked about gliding. So what is gliding? It's like paragliding, yeah? It's when you have this huge parachute?
R: It's when you're in a plane that doesn't have an engine, it just glides.
M: And the question was like where would you like to fly and Rory goes okay, I want to go paragliding. So that's flying pretty much.
R: No, no, it's not paragliding. Paragliding is when you have a frame. But gliding is when you have a plane around you. So it's like you're inside it whereas paragliding is when you're outside.
M: Ah, okay. Gliding. Oh, dear listener, I'm googling gliding, so you can google gliding together with me. Just put gliding in Google and go Google Images and check out the pictures. Ah, right, okay, okay. Interesting. Oh, Rory, you're so extreme. You're a daredevil. Look at you. He jumped with a parachute. He wants to go gliding over the mountains. Again. Yeah. Again.
