    Default can i get any help with usage of expressions

    Hey, would you please help me with this problem?

    1. I just wonder if ''worth'' can be used to describe '' a person'' like below.

    - I think you are worth a trip by air after finishing off the heavy project.

    I know normally '' deserve'' is used in casese as above, but what I want to know is if using ''worth'' in above context could be a possiblity.

    2. ''brisk'' - You look so brisk

    is this sentence is fine?

    You will be appreicated to give me a quick response.


    Thanks

    No, it isn't. You could say "You are worthy of a holiday"

    No. What do you mean by it?
