All booked up | Inglês Todos os Dias #219

Já estamos nos Estados Unidos, no momento aqui em Sea Isle City, NJ, passando algum tempo com meus primos. Quando chegamos em New York, passamos à noite em um hotel. Ainda bem que fizemos uma reserva, porque o hotel estava all booked up. Se fossemos walk-in guests, não teríamos conseguido quartos. Vamos então falar sobre o phrasal verb booked up no mini-podcast de hoje.

Hi there! Great tips today! I had never listened the phrasal verb “walk in” before. Are you going to barbacue some lobsters there, uh?

I don’t think so, Gustavo. My brother is allergic to shell fish.

Hi. That is de bad situation:

Some day I was traveling for Belo Horizonte for my job when I got the first hotel in that city. The clerk asked me: ” Are you a walk-in or a guest? I answerd: Now, I ´ve just came at Belo Horizonte city, please, Do have any bedroom in this hotel? Then he told me: I am sorry man, now we are booked up. But you can another one in the next hotel. Here is the number if you will call it. For my good luck I got one in other hotel.. What a day!
