4. Houses of Parliament (1) 國會大廈

最近懶人二號的友人想造訪倫敦,詢問我的意見。其實我也僅去過倫敦5次,每次逗留2-3天,所以這篇文章只是簡單提供意見以供有興趣的人概括性了解。

The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge 

For this trip to Northern Ireland, it cost me 117 pounds in total including the transportation, accommodation in the hotel and food.  I suggest you take National Express to get there.  If you buy the ticket one week earlier, it should cost you only 39 pounds (well, from Preston to Belfast).   I bought the ticket on the same day I went to Belfast, so it cost me 54 pounds... =.=" Bloody expensive.  (Updated: now 57 pounds, including 3-pound booking fee.)  Anyway, you can go to the website of national express to find out the timetable and bus fares.

Susan Boyle [蘇珊大嬸]相信大家都知道Susan Boyle這個原本名不經傳、參加Britain's Got Talent才一砲而紅的蘇珊大嬸,但是可能比價少有人會注意到她來自英國哪個小鎮。她在第一次上節目說過她來自哪裡,一個接近West Lothian叫Blackburn的小村莊


 


Blackburn (West Lothian) 事實上,我沒去過那地方。但是,早在我人還在英國也是一個叫Blackburn小鎮時,有回Emily愛牡蠣寫信跟我說:她的英國顧客問她,我是住在英國哪一個Blackburn?我這才知道原來英國有三個叫Blackburn的地方呀!當時我人在網咖,我在寫信問我英國朋友時,剛好網咖工作人員路過看到我寫的內容(他視力真好、、、有夠可怕的啦,我寫啥他們都看得一清二楚。
),直接就給我答案了。




3 Blackburns [三個布來克本]

我今天要講的就是我在英國待的Blackburn、應該也是比較有名的Blackburn。在我還沒去過Blackurn之前,我總是覺得這地名很好笑,怎麼會叫「黑燒」呢?哈哈!

A friend of mine Tony wrote an entry about me on his blog, which really surprised me!  If you want to read it, go to:

Thank you, Tony.  I will never forget your friendship and kindness.

I've been back to Taiwan for about one week.  I arrived in Taiwan on 15 July - safely and eventually.  When I went to Manchester Airport on 14 July, the staff at British Airways told me that my flight from Hong Kong to Taiwan was canceled... They said that my flight was canceled on 2 July because I didn't confirm it.  (I had no idea that I had to confirm it.)  Anyway, they requested two flights (Dragon Air)  for me, and they didn't charge me for the "flight changing fee". :) 
 
There are two embarrassing things...
