來到切斯特之前其實除了城牆跟另外一座大教堂,其餘的我們一點都沒有計畫。隨處走走的感覺真是不錯。話說,十四年沒見的朋友,還能這麼有默契。看見這座教堂,異口同聲的說想進去看看。其實外表看起來好像跟許多教堂大同小異。但每座教堂都要仔細觀察,才能發現其中的大不同。

We had very little plans for our time in Chester.  Basically, all we had planned to see was the Cathedral and the City Walls.  It was nice to stroll around a new city without a plan sometimes.  It was even nicer to have a long lost friend by your side.  It was amazing how much we still have in common, even after all these years.  We walked by the church, and decided to take a look inside almost simultaneously!  If you look at the church from the outside, each one looks pretty similar to one another.  Well, at least, some them may not look special from the outside, but it is usually the interior that is the most breathtaking!

我不知道怎麼告訴自己,逃避的原因是因為我不知道從何開始。說出一句『不知道』一點都不可恥。畢竟就是因為為了要學習才來的。我可以原諒自己的『不知道』,但如果我不試著去做,連我都無法原諒我自己,更何況是別人?

腦子一瞬間飄過好幾千個思緒。但我還是無法找到那個起跑點。這的天氣對我也一點幫助都沒有。早上起來一看見大太陽,對著自己說:『就是今天了!』。但當我這麼一說完,太陽馬上不見了。而且還馬上下起雨來。我的世界開始變得黑暗。一點光線都沒有。

記得剛來的那幾週,跟剛從切斯特大學畢業的同學聊到切斯特時她就提到有個『鐘』。當時聽的霧煞煞。她說得再多、再寫實、再仔細,沒看過就是少了那個感覺。她說,喜歡切斯特的原因是因為所有的人都會聚集在這個東門中下。就像是切斯特的心臟一樣,而這裡的人就像切斯特流著的血液。無論走到哪,最後還是會回到東門來。

Speaking of Chester, I recall one of the first conversations I had with a Chester graduate, who is now my course mate, about the city.  I had little clue, then, to what she was talking about.  No matter how precise her description was, there's always a piece missing from the puzzle when you don't get to see it with your own eyes.  She said to me, that one of the many reasons she loves Chester so much was because there's this clock tower in the center that brings people right back to it, no matter where they go.  I think, the clock is like the heart of the city, and the people are like blood, i.e. no matter where it flows off to, it always returns to the heart.

話說雖然內部都不能拍照,但是羅斯林的禮品部也不是蓋的。到了這個時候,該花的不該花的都花了。所以身上只剩下足夠帶我們回城裡搭車回利物浦的公車錢。看到喜歡的也只能看。整個禮品部都是想敗回家的物品。但我最後只買了一張30p的明信片寄給某人。所以才會拼命的把想要帶回家的東西通通都拍下來。反正,按下快門:免費!

Even though it was a little disappointing that photography was not allowed inside the chapel, the souvenire shop alone was enough a compensation for what my camera had missed out.  I'd already over spent my budget at this point, and had only enough coins for the bus ride back to catch the coach back to Liverpool.  Since I was unable to actually buy anything, I took loads of pictures of the things I might have wanted to take home, if I had more money with me.

軌道上的打工之意,就是在你自己的軌道widget中置頂對方的大聲公。這是一種非常有趣的推薦方式。因為幫人家推薦,也能夠幫自己增加BO幣收入。BO幣越多,就越方便你在軌道上幫自己的部落格做宣傳,以及交友、交流。

生日到了的時候,我想到來試試看用生日來拉人打工,不知道可以拉到幾個人。沒想到後來越玩越兇,拉來的人越來越多。甚至還超越了平時穩坐前三名的小咪焦糖、跟佶也....

謝謝各位長期以來對天仙[Celeste]以及il Giardino Romantico的支持與肯定。去年的這個時候,興高采烈的以為可以如期來到利物浦。沒想到到了七月卻踢到了一個大鐵板。不過還好有大家的鼓勵,讓我當時雖然很難過,但又馬上鼓起勇氣來面對現實才能如願完成夢想。

現在我又多集了一個第一次:第一次沒跟家人 and/or Jason過生日。不過我一點都不寂寞。因為這裡的好友們,都非常的熱情。也都對我非常的支持。寫這篇文章時,雖然台灣時間我的生日已過,但我還有差不多七個小時的時間,我們才要開始來慶祝呢!

也因為長期得到大家的鼓勵與支持,讓我昨天決定在今天一定要把所有的明信片都寫好寄出去。感謝軌道朋友們的熱情支持,讓我順利能夠第一次貼圖紀念踩踩樂。但也同時對老朋友們非常不好意思。因為時間沒抓好,來的太突然,所以沒有來得及事先公告。下次我會在補償。

【天仙提醒:本篇設有自動播放背景音樂】

Rosslyn Chapel was the reason why I went to Edinburgh.  The journey was long, and the weather was absolutely freezing, but I was overjoyed to have finally made it here.  Some of the pictures may be a little blury due to my trembling hands in the cold.  You may not enjoy them as much as I enjoy them myself, but I hope that one day, you will all come and see this impressive building yourselves.

此篇為大家由歷史的角度介紹Rosslyn Chapel與聖殿騎士的密切關連。英文部份載至於Frances A. Yates所著之 The Knights Templar in Britian.  由此可得知,Dan Brown所著的『達文西密碼』並不是完完全全天馬行空。有非常多的靈感都是來自於可靠的資料來源。[最主要的:Holy Blood, Holy Grail]而哪些是虛構,哪些是真實的,就讓有興趣的讀者自己去慢慢察覺囉!

This is a historical background introduction to the Chapel.  The English extracts are from the book The Knights Templar in Britian, by Frances A. Yates.  From this, we can see that Dan Brown wasn't completely making things up on his own.  Many of his sources were extremely reliable and thoroughly researched, most notably - Holy Blood, Holy Grail.  As for which parts are fiction and which are actual historical facts, that is for you, the reader, to find out on your own.  That is, if you are interested.



"Roslin Chapel and the Templar legends are inexorably mixed, even though the chapel was founded over a hundred years after the Order’s suppression. It figures largely in many theories about the Templars, their purpose and survival."1

之前的 Egg Café一文中介紹的是店家的素食早餐。從第一次到那常過超美味的素食餐點之後至今大概還去過了四五次。這話說來也很奇怪。他的量都非常的多。每一次我都吃不完[除了早餐那次我有全部吃完之外],但只要每次去吃完以後的那兩三天,我的肚子都會像無底洞一樣怎麼吃都吃不飽。

朋友來訪不能不一起吃個飯。雖然在切斯特時已經一起用過餐,但Egg Café在利物浦的名聲真的不小。這可是連熱愛葷食的都會愛上的素食餐廳!來利物浦玩,我當然要大力推薦給好友來嚐嚐囉!

感謝大家的支持!原本以為還要好一陣子才會破二十萬,沒想到今天看完球賽回來就發現差幾個就要破了!因為來不及辦踩踩樂,所以只好求軌道的朋友們幫忙抓圖。在沒有軌道以前,抓抓樂每次都是不了了之。這次利用軌道,一下子就這麼多人出來幫忙踩二十萬+抓圖。真是太感激各位了!

利物浦是一個不大也不小的城市。如果你想要去哪裡,靠雙腿都走的到。Albert Dock離校園差不多45-50分鐘的步行距離。我來這的次數五根手指頭還數得清。Beatles Story也是在這個區域裡。這天是陪老朋友來閒晃。陪他來這找找紀念品。順便也看看之前都還沒機會看到的地方。

今天跟大家分享的是在碼頭看到的帆船。我看到時突然想到:這是我第一次看到帆船嘛?我忘了之前有沒有看過。但我只知道,我那天跟帆船的距離,非常近。

University Ranking by Subject <<English>>

今天才發現可以以科系去查詢自己學校的排行。不過還是要在此提醒大家,排名是一回事。最主要還是要看你選的學校所提供的課程是不是符合你的需求比較重要。

此篇文章為英文科之排行。

Chester是個什麼樣的地方?我來英國前沒聽說過這地方。但同學中竟然有三位在此混過大學三年。除了他們之外,每個去過的人也都說讚!不過因為我不了解,所以之前想去的慾望就大打折扣。這次其實是託了一位14年沒見面的法籍友人的福,才又得到了這難得的出遊機會。

What kind of a place is Chester?  I've never heard of the place prior to my arrival in the UK.  Interestingly enough, there are three mates in my MA who were Chester fellows.  On top of that, every single person who had been there had had only good things to say about the place.  Because I didn't 'know', it lessened my desire to visit before.  However, when a friend you had not seen in 14 years comes to visit you, you're bound to pick up surprises wherever you go!

國家蘇格蘭博物館也是在我們住的youth hostel附近而已。位於Grey Friars正對面。最棒的是:免費入場!來到愛丁堡一定要來這逛逛。因為這一整棟樓一共有八層的展覽可以讓你看個夠!不過這次來真的沒什麼時間慢慢晃。對蘇格蘭歷史文化有興趣的話,一定要抽出至少半天的時間仔細的品嚐每一層樓的展覽。絕對不會讓你失望的!

National Museum of Scotland is located near our youth hostel.  It's right across from Grey Friars.  Best of all, admission is FREE!  If you come to Edinburgh, you must spend some time here.  There are eight stories all together, and you are bound to love everything in the museum.  However, because of our limited time, we could only have a quick glance at everything.  If you happen to be interested in the history and/or culture of Scotland, you must spare at least half a day's time to slowly savor each and every floor.  Satisfaction is guaranteed!

在hostel跟我們住同一間房間的兩個女生說他們前一天去找哈利波特。他們找到了作者J.K. Rowling開始起筆的那家coffee shop,還說許多裡面角色的名字靈感都是從這裡來的。其實我跟我朋友早就預計要來好好參觀一下這個『墓地公園』。不過一聽到他們這麼一說,還真想來看看是不是真的有書本裡頭的角色的名字。

The two girls that shared the same room in the hostel told us that they went on a sort-of Harry Potter tour the day before.  They found the coffee shop in which the author J.K. Rowling first started writing the story on napkins.  When my friend and I passed by the day before, we had already made plans to come and take a closer look at this graveyard the next day.  But having heard them say that Rowling had allegedly taken names from here, it made us want to visit it even more.
