上次向大家推薦了我個人很喜愛的英倫音樂活動"耳聽英倫"。今天介紹的是完全不同類型"步走英倫",希望你也喜歡。 Last time I recommended some of my favourite music related events, Music in UK. Today I'm going to talk about some totally different, Rambling in UK. Hopefully you will like them as well. 2-1. 很多人喜愛騎腳踏車這有益身心的運動。如果能夠在世界級奧運競技場上騎幾個圈,那不是很棒嗎?座落於倫敦奧林派克公園旁的室內自行車館就可以給你這個難得經驗。自行車館是為2012年倫敦奧運建立的,是世界一級場館。當年英國自行車隊就在這裏贏得九面獎牌,其中有八面還是金牌噢! How does cycling in a world class velodrome sound? If you are an avid cyclist, cycling on the London... Continue Reading →

My old working life 以往職業生涯

A few years ago at work I was assigned to a project and flew to Brussels every week for four months. 幾年前還在英國工作時,我被分派到一個在比利時分公司的項目。連續四個月每星期都要飛去比利時。 I became such an expert at packing that it would only take me ten minutes to pack my case every Sunday evening.  I had Monday morning down to a clockwork from the moment...

Snowdonia 斯諾登山

In 2013, I went to visit a friend in Wales and we went to the Snowdonia National Park. Unfortunately we left home too late that day and didn't have enough time to climb all the way up to the Snowdonia. 在2013年,我到威爾斯探訪朋友,他帶我到斯諾登國家公園遊覽。可惜那天我們太遲出發,只夠時間走一部分路程,未能 登上斯諾登山。 In 2013,  my friend's dog Blodwyn came with us.  Blodwyn means white flower...

Lavender 薰衣草

When people think of lavender fields, they usually think of Provence in France.

In the late 1990’s, a gentleman working in the fragrance department of a large corporation in UK... Continue Reading →

Moving houses 搬家

People in England used to say  moving house is one of the most stressful events in life after the death of a spouse, and divorce.  以前英國人都說搬家會有有很大壓力,只有配偶往生,或離婚才會引致更大的壓力。 That must have been the days when people still had job security, this was still a peaceful world, and there were no mobile phones for us to lose. However,... Continue Reading →

Cracks 裂痕

In my recent post about Bristol, I mentioned Banksy and his work. Last weekend he painted a new mural at Dover in England. 最近我在布里斯托文章裡提過Banksy及他的作品。上週末在英國多佛港剛出現一張他的新壁畫。 The mural is a massive EU flag with its 12 stars, and a worker busy chiselling away one of the stars. If you look closely, you can see cracks across the flag... Continue Reading →
