The Great North Welsh Railway Journey: 3– Ffestiniog

Ffestiniog Railway to Blaenau Ffestiniog: what is quite possibly the most beautiful grey town, with the oldest railway company in the United Kingdom.

北威爾斯・鐵道遊:2.高原鐵路

上回遊過Caernarfon城堡,本日正式開始蒸汽火車之旅。 英國是蒸汽火車的發明地,但自六十年代後已絕跡於日常用的網絡內。要坐它們,需要找保存鐵路。所謂保存鐵路 (Preserved Railways),指的是由發燒友或是以慈善形式運作,作為旅遊景點的鐵路。它們大多是被淘汰廢棄的舊線,被志願者接收後再煥發第二春。 在這熱愛舊事的國度,保存鐵路愈發的受歡迎,英國南北大大小小的路線有上百個。 北威爾斯是個蝕錢保存鐵路滿佈的區域:這裡以往是採石礦的重鎮,有很多被保存下來的舊石礦鐵路等著遊人一坐。今天先坐的是威爾斯高原鐵路(Welsh Highland Railway)。 又或其威爾斯語名字:”Rheilffordd Eryri”。不要問我怎樣讀。 威爾斯高原鐵路,是發燒友數十年的努力而成的一條路線,穿過Snowdonia國家公園,連接Caernarfon和本日第一目的地Porthmadog,一個寧靜的港口城市。

The Great North Welsh Railway Journey – 2. Highland Railway to Porthmadog

At over 25 miles in length and almost two hours in duration, it is no fairground ride either. It is a proper working railway going through some of the most spectacular landscape of Snowdonia, propelled by steam.

北威爾斯・鐵道遊-1.加拿分城 (Caernarfon)

背著背包,來趟無故而隨興的鐵路旅行。 大概因國際交通不便,北威爾斯不是遊英國的大路選擇。但對一個鐵道迷來說,這角落立時變成旅遊熱點:由世上第一條保存鐵路到數條蒸汽觀光線,北威爾斯是個我一直想到的地方。 某天被困圖書館時,在網上看見兩條響往已久的路線快將重開,看看時間剛好是較空閒的週末。於是便像旅遊廣告一樣,沒太多考慮的便訂了票。

飛越泰唔士河-倫敦吊車

遊倫敦要過泰唔士河,可以經橋步行駕車坐巴士,也可以坐地鐵橫渡,更可以遊船河。不過現在還有個新選擇:坐在一個懸掛於河上九十米高空的鐵箱裡。坐吊車!

Cross the Thames Up in the Air: Emirates Air Line

There are many ways you can cross the Thames in London. Besides walking, roads, trains and tubes, you can also chose to cross via a rope hanging ninety metres above the water.

The Great North Welsh Railway Journey – 1. Caernarfon

North Wales. The idea began on a facebook scroll. The image was stereotypically grey. I was, fittingly, in a library...

英式詞彙記:放假去旅行

英國人最響往放假,開口閉口的不是天氣就是最近旅行的地點情節,英文也自然的有一堆形容不同假期和旅程的詞語。最例牌指放假的字,當然就是Holiday。

HONG KONG MONOPOLY… with Current prices

Perhaps in acknowledgement that nobody would ever be able to afford the properties anyway, Hong Kong editions love to include places where nobody lives: good luck if your lifelong dream is to relocate to Chek Lap Kok. Hong Kong monopoly, with current prices.
