Dana: "Now we're off to Spain! We're leaving now!"

Dana: The first part...
Mirai: "Nu bär det av till"
Dana: ...is an expression used when you are about to depart. It's most commonly used when leaving for a destination far away, such as another country or city. Listen again. "Now we're off to Spain!" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Nu bär det av till Spanien! (REGULAR) Nu bär det av till Spanien!
Dana: Then comes the phrase, "We're leaving now!"
Mirai: Nu sticker vi! In which "att sticka" actually means "to sting."
Dana: ...but it's also a slang expression meaning “we're leaving.”
Mirai: Nu sticker jag!
Dana: “I'm leaving now!” Listen to the expression again. "We're leaving now!" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Nu sticker vi! (REGULAR) Nu sticker vi!
Dana: All together, it's "Now we're off to Spain! We're leaving now!"
Mirai: Nu bär det av till Spanien! Nu sticker vi!
