Lost Friendships

9 days of 「Going around Taiwan.」

18, Aug - 26, Aug 2017 
our last summer vacation as students/ROOMATES

會踏上這個旅程並非經過謹慎地思考,這旅程的開端只是因為在冬天的某天的某個時候,我和室友們一群人坐在一起聊天… 忘了到底在聊什麼,也根本忘了是誰突然開口說:那我們這次暑假可以去環島!!!! 大家也沒有多想什麼就一口同聲地答應,現在想想這個隨口答應也真的很隨意,因為我們沒有想著要存錢也完全沒有任何的計畫。

就這樣過了好幾個月,中間歷經了地獄似的期中期末考、無止盡的開會、趕著永遠趕不上的進度最後七月中完成了心理營。由於被營隊摧慘不堪的身體需要休養以及我們都得賺錢才能支付環島的所有開銷,還有好多零零碎碎的原因,我們選擇在八月底的時候出發。

  • 關於訂房

我是個很懶得把blogger心得文一個一個看過、比較的人,畢竟除了受到現代媒體和電子產品的負面影響,也是因為我本身真的是個很沒有耐心的人。就像前面所述的,我們完全沒有計劃,等我們真的採取行動的時候已經剩一個多禮拜,不到兩個禮拜的時間了。就在凌晨,我們幾個圍坐在客廳,很默契的一些人想路線,先往東走呢?還是往西;另一些人查著可以去哪玩?吃什麼?約班上哪個同學?;再來剩下我,訂房的那位⋯⋯

我用了booking.com和Agoda訂房,懶人如我,將所有的條件篩選過後,只把超高評價、良好地理位置還有最最最重要的「免費取消訂房」的青年旅館挑出來比較。如果你和我們一樣感覺怎麼永遠存不到夠的錢,或者其實你是個很有金錢觀念的人但是想要省點住宿費,我只能說青年旅館會是你最好的選擇,「所謂靠山山倒,靠人人倒,靠hostel最好」

就在那短短的幾個小時,我左右開弓,左手用手機、右手用電腦將房間都一併訂完。然後訂完之後,信誓旦旦的說計劃去哪玩不急,這個我們明天再想就好了!而那個明天⋯⋯就一直拖到出發的前一晚才在想。

從這邊我大概就學到了一件事情:人有無限的可能,不要一直待在你的comfort zone,人只要有點壓力,那個效率是可以用光速來算的

  • 關於路線

要說我們完全沒有計劃也不行,因為我們決定往東走了不是嗎?

要先往西、往東,這其實都沒差,畢竟是「環島」。所以說,雖然我們不管往哪邊先走都沒差,只是我們當初會想先往東走是因為想先放空著走,然後到墾丁(也就是我們的悠閒/緊湊分界點)玩海上設施之後,因為消耗了很多體力所以在西半部可以狂吃東西。理由是自己說服自己的,沒有好理由或壞理由,只有能不能說服自己的理由。如果當時要說服自己從西部出發也可,可能就是洗腦自己說先在西半部狂吃狂玩,然後最後悠悠哉哉的享受旅程,最後回家。 21 more words
