Canterbury had always been one of the must-visit places on my list. My curiosity of the place rose from Chaucer's 'Canterbury Tales'. It was not until I arrived, did I realise that it is also home to Christopher Marlowe. When I found out that my dear friend lived in Canterbury, I knew that there was absolutely no reason why I should not visit the place. In this article, you will see glimpses of this adorable little city. This is a place in which the old merged with the new. More importantly, though, it is a place where the old outlives the new, unlike many other cities.
坎特伯里一直是我想來的地方。起因當然是因為Chaucer著作的'Canterbury Tales'。不過直到我來到這裡才發現原來他也是Christopher Marlowe（『浮士德』作家）的家鄉。又在我得知我多年好友居住於此，讓我更沒有理由不來拜訪一下。這篇所分享的圖片僅是一些零零碎碎捕捉到的鏡頭。與大家分享一下這可愛的小城市。有趣的是，他跟許多城市一樣，你可以看見古老文化以及新文化的交融。但不同於其他城市的是，這個地方似乎是古老文化的生命力比較強。

The best thing that happened to me during my trip to Canterbury, was being able to spend a couple of days with one of my best friends in high school. Before reuniting in the UK, we had not seen each other for 14 solid years.

This is the other LFC Store. It's smaller, but sometimes you can find things that may have been sold out in the other store or something like that. The other one is located in Liverpool 1, and this is located in Clayton Square.
這就是另外一間專賣店。有時候另外一間賣完的或許可以在這裡找到。另外一間位於Liverpool 1購物中心。這間則是位於Clayton Square.

It all started because of the Alumni Reunion Luncheon held by Tunghai University. A few friends decided to take this opportunity to have our own class reunion the night before the luncheon, where we could enjoy good food, good beer, and good company. And it happened to be the Halloween weekend.

I had waited for many years for a chance to visit the Lin Family Mansion and Garden. I had heard about its beauty, seen pictures that people had taken, and longed for a chance to visit the place myself. Finally, on this day, I got a chance to see the beauty of Chinese traditional architecture with my own eyes.

Summer is not hotpot season. But somehow we both craved a nice pot of veggies and hot soup. The night before my friend and I had too much fun chatting the night away. She had come to Taipei to attend an event. When she woke up with a hangover (we both did), she called to let them know that she would not be attending. Only then had she been informed that the event had been postponed. This saved her from the guilt of skipping the event, and as for me, the guilt of seducing my friend to skip the event.

I'm so hard behind my posting schedule because of the Paddington series. But, I think it was well worth it. Anyway, this was a small get together between a few friends, apparently to celebrate my relocation (back) to Taipei. At the time, two of my friends were only in the process of preparing for their wedding, but by the time I manage to actually publish this article, they are already married! Woopie! Congrats to them!

The best thing about traveling on your own, is the amount of freedom you have over everything. As I wasn't on any kind of schedule, and because I grew so fond of this little city, I was so reluctant to just walk back to the station and leave. So I took the opportunity to take a walk around Parade Park, and here are some shots I took during my stroll.

For some reason, after spending a whole day in Bath, I felt a craving for Thai food. I remember thinking how I must find Thai food, while strolling around looking for a restaurant. Then, I stumbled upon Thai Balcony, and thought I should give it a try. No surprise can ever be a disappointment, since you don't know what to expect.

Oxford University Press Bookshop
After Cambridge, it was inevitable to visit its rival city, Oxford. There are also many tourists here. This bookshop is one of our favourite places in Oxford. So many books, but so little money to buy them all!
