    NOT A TEACHER.

    To me, "a world away" means very far away. I'm not sure why there's a "just" in the example you provided. Perhaps because the writer was being sarcastic.

    Welcome to the board, Oleg.

    What is the context?

    It might be a sci-fi story and she is on the next planet.

    Don't make us guess, please.
