Day Hike: Seven Sisters

England can feel claustrophobic: it’s dense, laced with gray highways and aging malls and hulking supermarkets, and too often straddled by gray skies. The air, even in the suburbs, can be acrid. 516 more words

英國旅行 | 多佛 Dover

#Dover 多佛之旅

剛在臉書專頁分享完承重的職場生活,來分享這個週末我們去Dover玩 :)

 

📍Dover

從倫敦St. Pancras車站出發,只需要一小時多一點點的火車車程

這是英國東南方濱海城市之一,每天有非常頻繁的渡輪往來法國加萊Calais

 

📍Dover景點

🔹多佛城堡 #Dovercastle 是全英格蘭最大的城堡,從12世紀開始興建,這個城堡不是公主住的那種城堡,而是具有軍事戰略意義的城堡,城堡本人裡面(The Great Hall)保留了很多中世紀的樣貌,即使是當時的國王住的房間也十分簡單而且還很冷,很難想像當時的人怎麼生活

進城堡區後第一個參觀景點不是城堡本人,而是戰爭時期的地下秘密軍事總部,它扮演非常重要的角色,二戰時的Dunkirk敦克爾克大撤退就是在這裏研擬計畫的,我們有體驗了當時的總理廣播與王者之聲的國王廣播,也看了二戰的紀錄片,戰爭畫面看起來真的非常殘酷,世界和平絕對不是只有口號,必須落實

城堡腹地超大,我們去的時候天氣超好又溫暖,覺得城堡超級舒服,綠地又多,隨時躺下來做日光浴都可以,也可以看得到繁忙的多佛港

參觀完城堡後,我們像賣票的人詢問能不能走到白色峭壁White Cliffs,她告訴我們怎麼走以後我們就出發了

那段路其實不太好走,如果有開車會方便許多

🔸白色峭壁 #whitecliffsofdover

這是敦克爾克大撤退英國士兵看到英國陸地的第一印象,非常壯觀

來到峭壁以前的路不太好走,因為有幾段要人車並行完全沒有人行道(山路怎麼會有人行道呢?),就算過了白色峭壁的入口後,這裡有些步道也不好走 6 more words

The White cliffs of Dover, England

There’ll be love and laughter

And peace ever after.

Tomorrow, when the world is free. 

– The White Cliffs of Dover by Vera Lynn

It is not hard to imagine the look of ecstasy on the faces of homeward bound WWII British soldiers on seeing the old and familiar White Cliffs from their sailing vessels in the English channel. 410 more words

Success or Failure

As this is my first blog post I’m just going to keep it short until I get into the swing of things. In the grand scheme of things I am very new to the world of photography and even newer still to the world of landscape photography. 245 more words
