place lag

(名詞/不可數) 地差 - 搭機長途飛行到一個全新的陌生地點後所遭受的驚奇與略微困惑感。這個名詞衍生自 jet lag (時差)。

The pilot and writer Mark Vanhoenacker has coined the expression "place lag" to describe the wonder of arriving at new locales after a long flight. Parallel to jet lag and its time difference, the temporary spatial disjuncture between the familiarity of home and the unfamiliarity of elsewhere, enabled through the speed of air travel, can reset one's perspective on the world.
