Copen Local Base Kamakura ☆ Lifestyle Cafe

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

Copen Local Base Kamakura A HIP LIFESTYLE CAFE Copen Local Base Kamakura is a lovely cafe with a beach vibe. (Kamakura in Japan is near the coast.) Its location is a 4-minute walk from the Kamakura station. To me it is not an ordinary cafe. I find it unique because the cafe provides educational and socializing aspect to visitors whether they share interests in cars or not. Copen Local Base has a Copen convertible displayed for fans as well as those who are regular cafe customers. This showroom type of cafe was created by Daihatsu Car Company. It is a place where locals can hang out and socialize while they are provided with information on Copen. The concept for Copen Local Base is a life style shop that gives roots to the community by educating the people through Copen cars. Not only does Copen Local Base allow automobile fans to […]

There’s no escaping the passion for sport in Melbourne

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

The level of passion the locals have for sport in Melbourne is insane. Read the two major newspapers, listen to any talk back radio, or turn on the TV at pretty much any stage across the weekend, and chances are sport will be front and centre. I love my sport, I worked in professional sport in Melbourne for nine years, and even I get sick of the coverage. If there’s such as a thing as sports poisoning, then almost every Melbournian has a severe dose 12 months a year! If you’re a visitor to Melbourne with an interest in sport, you’ve come to the right place. At any time of the year you can check out some sporting event featuring the world’s best going at it. The number of world-class athletes who call Melbourne home and ply their trade here, plus the world-class athletes who visit with their clubs or for major sporting events is mind-boggling. So to try and cut through the clutter and confusion for you, here’s a comprehensive guide to sport in Melbourne. Australian Rules Football (AFL) Melbourne Cricket Ground With nine teams based in Melbourne and another one an hour away in Geelong, Australian Rules Football [...]

Cherry Blossoms in Washington, D.C. 2017

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

Cherry Blossoms in Washington, D.C. 2017 These are cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C. photographed on March 13, 2017. In the morning I read on the news that a snow storm, Stella, was approaching the northeast coast of the United States and the cold spell could possibly damage the cherry blossoms. I was worried that many cherry blossoms may not bloom this year. I also learned that some have already bloomed, so I decided on a whim to explore a bit around Tidal Basin to check them out with my son. Since my son who is pre-school age is homeschooled this year (this is a whole another topic), it allowed me to do something spontaneous like this. When I approached Tidal Basin, I could tell that it was way before the peak bloom. However, I did see some that have bloomed. These are one of the few cherry blossom trees that […]

7 Things To Know Before Travelling by Overnight Train in Vietnam - Mapping Megan


Mapping Megan

As many a traveler will tell you, taking an overnight train in Asia is quite an adventure, one that I have always found to be enjoyable and something to look forward to.Overnight trains are my favorite means of covering long distances because they're usually friendlier to my budget and more comfortable than taking long road trips being cramped in a small car or bus.The other advantage is that you get to stretch your legs out and get a good night’s sleep in exchange for just a little bit more than you would pay for a hostel or budget hotel.

Modern Rustic Indian Design Home

Modern Rustic Indian Design Home This modern rustic Indian design home was the last home that I got to shoot before leaving Mumbai, India in June, 2016. This gorgeous home belongs to my American friend, Anne and her family, that I had a chance to know in my last year. The photo shoot took place about a month before my departure. I wanted to edit and post these photos on my blog sooner, but the big move took over my life. Then the transitional stage between Mumbai and my current home in Northern Virginia totally dominated my time. I am very excited to be able to present Anne’s home finally on my blog. It has been in my mind for too long. I met Anne shortly after having returned to the school year in 2015 after our second summer break in Mumbai. I remember spotting her because I liked the […]

七月時跟友人決定了去斯里蘭卡旅行,計劃九月出發。由於我沒有南亞旅遊的經驗,只知道斯里蘭卡在印度以南,對飛行距離沒有概念。找尋機票時才發現直航也要大約五小時,而且只有國泰和斯里蘭卡航空提供直航,票價也不便宜。退而求其次,打算乘廉航,在吉隆坡或新加坡轉機,飛斯里蘭卡的廉航有亞航 (Airasia)和 馬印航空 (Malindo Air) 等數間。以全程均乘搭Airasia轉機為例,單程總共要花九至十二小時,會浪費掉一整個下午等轉機或犠牲了零晨的休息時間,來回連稅大約HKD$2300,不包行李。 幸好斯里蘭卡航空 (Sri Lanka Airlines) 剛好推出特價,直航斯里蘭卡,中途停留曼谷上落客,來回連稅只需HKD$3000,包30kg行李。連同在曼谷停留的半小時,飛行時間約六小時。斯航雖然比Airasia貴了七百,但節省很多時間和行李費,還有兩餐飛機餐,不用捱餓或加錢吃廉航飛機餐。如此一來這機票挺划算! 一上機就發現座位上已擺放著小枕頭和毛毯,毛毯 (感覺)乾淨,人人有份永不落空,不用等待空服員派發。這一點很驚喜,因為很多傳統航空都是按要求派發。 第二個驚喜就是機上的娛樂設備,電影選擇很新,特別是Marvel電影系列挺齊全,2016年的 Civil War和 Batman vs Superman都有,還有兩集Captain America、Deadpool、最新荷李活電影。見到個List,作為電影迷的我相當興奮!! 有點可惜是螢幕距離太近了,看久了有點辛苦,可盡量要求坐第一排,螢幕從手柄拉出就不會太近。 飛機餐方面,午餐和晚餐都是斯里蘭卡菜式,早餐則有西式選擇,另有素菜。因為配合南亞各種宗教,餐單不會出現豬和牛,選擇就是咖哩雞或咖哩魚。不過,怕辣的人不用擔心,咖哩不辣而且口味偏淡,不像一般斯里蘭卡菜的重口味和超辣。飛機餐主菜味道不錯,只是咖哩汁偏少,兩次吃頭盤沙律都太酸了,不合我口味。甜品、乳酪和生果都很好吃,還可以點斯里蘭卡錫蘭紅茶,茶的質素中上。 在曼谷短暫停留時,有去曼谷的人下機,然後由曼谷去斯里蘭卡 (去程) 或 香港 (回程)的人上機,上落客中途會機倉清潔和入油,過程順利,大約停半小時。可以趁這時間離開座位伸展一下,但注意不是去曼谷的話,不可下機。 初次乘坐斯里蘭卡航空,整體很滿意,斯里蘭卡餐飲感覺好新奇,空姐制服很有特色。還有兩個加分位,就是很準時和機師降落技術很好。 親身體驗後,斯航絕對值回票價。去斯里蘭卡的話,不防留意一下斯航有沒有做特價,給自己國泰以外多一個選擇,不竟國泰的服務質素近年下滑,還不一定有毛毯提供。兩間航空公司原價機票都差不多,到埗時間都是深夜,國泰早一點,但回程時間就斯航更方便。 去曼谷的話,都可以考慮乘斯航,來回大約HKD$1500,有30kg行李可掃貨。回程時,有很多香港人大包細包從曼谷上機,以價位和服務來說,斯航曼谷這條線好有潛力,值得推薦一試! 斯里蘭卡航空官網: www.srilankan.com 更多關於斯里蘭卡旅行的照片和資訊可follow我的 Facebook page – 慢活女孩 Eatwalkfeel

Tips for Traveling with the Whole Family

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Taking a trip is supposed to be fun, but travelling with the whole family can have challenges of its own, especially if you have children of different ages.

Making sure everyone is having fun means a lot of compromise, while at the same time you have to ensure that you leave time as adults for your own activities and relaxation.

Trip planning is sometimes difficult, but if you take some simple steps and make the right plans, it can be enjoyable for everyone involved. Here are some tips for traveling with the whole family.

15 freelancer jobs to make money on the road

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

Being a freelancer is a recent phenomenon from a mass scale point of view. Once upon a time work and travel were mutually exclusive pastimes for almost everyone. You either worked or you travelled, but 99% of us really couldn’t do both. Of course back when I first travelled overseas I worked as a primary school teacher in London for two years, but that was different. I couldn’t just get up and live somewhere else one day just because I felt like it. I was living in London, in a bricks and mortar building I had to go to Monday to Friday, earning money by teaching little English kids how to read and write. Today things are much, much different. The freelancer community is exploding and the amount of people either leaving their jobs to freelance online, or negotiating with their employer to work from home or on their travels, is in the tens of millions worldwide. For many it doesn’t matter whether you’re in your home office or on a beach in the Bahamas, as long as you have a laptop and an internet connection you can do the exact same job to the exact same standards. Without any qualifications, [...]

[越南] 峴港美食篇

by Queenie @ Eatwalkfeel

好多人去過峴港後,都大讚當地食物又平又好食,我挑選了幾款峴港美食推薦給大家。 (1) 雪糕椰青皇 Kem Ý Trái Dừa 剛到達峴港這個陽光與海灘的天堂,同時也發現她地獄的一面,六月份去時,萬里無雲的天空下是38度的白天。熱到傻吃雪糕就最適合不過,峴港有一款必試甜品,就是塞滿雪糕的椰青 Kem Ý Trái Dừa。話說峴港河岸兩旁酒吧、餐廳都很多,還有很多水準出色的甜品店,我推薦的這家是最受歡迎的。雖然樓高三層,但如果晚上來,還是要大排長龍,皆因樓上雅座可以欣賞180度河景。 甜品方面,這餐廳除了雪糕,還有Smoothies、燉椰皇、Yogurt等等,全部新鮮製作。當中最貴就是我要介紹的雪糕椰青皇,新鮮大椰青,椰青水倒出來後,放入三球自選口味雪糕,配上花生和餅乾,簡直是完美下午茶或飯後甜品。椰青水不會浪費,會另上。說最貴不是想嚇怕大家,只是方便下單,因為餐牌是越南文,點最貴的就是了,店內也有圖片輔助。這麼豐富的甜品,只需要 VND50,000,大約HKD17,點來「呃 like」也不錯。 Dừa Bén Tre 196 地址: 196 Bạch Đằng, Phước Ninh, Đà Nẵng, Vietnam ( https://goo.gl/maps/XS2pMeKRdcv) 就在龍橋的西河岸,由橋開始向北走,還未到 Cafe Highland就會找到   (2) 本土海鮮 峴港沙灘以北一帶有很多海鮮大排檔,不過我不是要推薦大家去那邊,因為那一列排檔都是以遊客生意為主。基本在峴港吃海鮮,毎一家都很新鮮,為遊客以設的餐廳只是把同樣菜色價錢標貴了。 第一次光顧這家餐廳是因為位置鄰近酒店,而且店內坐滿越南人,我就是偏愛這種當地人也會去的餐廳。看到旁邊一家人點了一桌海鮮,我急不及待要點菜,可笑的是這家又是只有越南文餐牌。最後靠越南大媽的幫助下,成功點了一碟燒生蠔和魷魚炒麵。燒生蠔 (Hàu nướng) 即點即開,在越南吃海鮮通常以公斤計算,點一公斤大約有一打,澆上特製醬汁,醬汁貫徹越南風味,酸中帶辣,再灑上大量蔥花和花生碎。 魷魚炒麵 (Mực Xài Mì ),魷魚爽口彈牙,配菜很多。早前在胡志明市試過越南炒麵,覺得不合口味,麵很乾,菜很苦。這家海鮮店的炒麵令我對炒麵挽回很多分數,吃完還想再添。 因為價廉物美,又很喜歡這裡的氣氛,隔天晚上再光顧,發現原來早點來吃晚餐,會有一碟鵪鶉蛋作前菜,很有特式。第二次來除了Encore燒蠔,還點了檸檬葉煮蜆 (Nghêu Hấp ),味道清甜帶香草味。 至於埋單多少錢,已經平到我忘了,大約是HKD120以下兩位,太平便的關係,應該要擔心肚皮可以吃多少比較重要。 Quán Trí hằng  地址: 2 Triệu Việt Vương, Sơn Trà, Đà Nẵng, Vietnam ( https://goo.gl/maps/EEQC9iRe68v) 在東河岸的小社區,所以好有街坊feel,像香港的大排檔。點地也較難找,沿著熱鬧的河岸向北走,看到泰國餐廳後轉右入,晚上開燈的店不多,顯得這家餐廳很突出。   (3) 越南撈檬粉 加 新鮮蔗汁 越南無論河粉、米粉還是檬粉都是大眾美食,南越和北越吃 Pho的文化各有特色,而撈檬粉在越南中部就最流行。在峴港要找一間好吃的越南湯河會有點困難,但撈檬粉就很多,吃厭了湯河不防轉轉撈檬。在酒店早餐,我早已一嘗撈檬的滋味。那天踏單車離開沙灘時,路過一家小檔,雖然是路邊灘有點擔心衛生,但見她生意超好,很多人坐下來吃或外賣,就二話不說坐下。這越南大媽只賣一款撈檬,毎一碗都有火腿和扎肉,只要跟她說要不要辣就可以等食。撈檬口感清爽,配料多令味道很有層次。 這個路邊攤只賣撈檬,有趣的是其他食客都不約而同在喝蔗汁,原來是光顧了旁邊一間賣蔗汁的地舖。蔗汁是即叫即榨,完全無添加,一滴滴黃色汁液倒滿一杯。老闆問我是要現在飲還是外賣,我指一指撈檬檔,他就用了膠杯。這杯蔗汁特別在是黃色的,不是香港常見的綠色,味道清甜,還帶一點香茅味,香茅味是來自甘蔗的,因為我看著製造過程只用了甘蔗。這杯蔗汁還有一個驚人價錢,只賣VND5000,即是兩蚊,兩蚊,無錯只是兩蚊就可以買來清暑解渴。 一家吃,一家喝,互相帶動對方的生意,這種有趣的互動富有人情味。 很可惜,沒有怕下店舖的照片,沒法教大家去,只是從沙灘回酒店的路上遇到,旅行有時就是要看緣份。   (4) 特式咖啡室 其實它同時是咖啡室、酒店和甜品店的合體,在河岸兩旁都有不少酒吧,感覺東面的較多年青人,店舖設計也別出心裁。我去的這間氣氛很好,適合聊天放空。我點了杯 Cookies & cream特飲,沙冰造得很幼滑,曲奇味濃。...

Fun Things to Do in Munich for the Adventurous Soul

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Yes, Munich is home to Oktoberfest, offers tours to Neuschwanstein Castle, has the BMW Museum, and numerous beer gardens, and it's for these attractions the city is most famously known.

But what if you are looking for something new and exciting to do in Munich. This Bavarian city offers many secret activities and adventures that are sure to add some excitement to your next German holiday, and some will most definitely push you outside of your comfort zone!

So once you’re tired of listening to the sounds of a glockenspiel and are done playing dress-up with lederhosen and dirndls, why not try these adventures on for size. Put down that bratwurst or schnitzel, book a Munich taxi, and head to one of these quirky off the beaten path attractions.

The east coast of Tasmania is all about the beaches

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

The east coast of Tasmania is all about the beaches. The sand is a brilliant white and the water a magnificent crystal-clear blue that you usually see on travel brochures and postcards. The big grey rocks with splashes of bright orange act as the beach’s bookends, while the native bushland that often lines the beach’s edge remains virtually untouched. The beaches are not tropical. Instead they are rugged, wild and sometimes isolated. And despite the Great Eastern Drive from Orford in the south to St Helens in the north being famous the world over for its spectacular coastal views, you’ll often have the beach to yourself if you choose to stop for a swim or a walk. Anywhere else on Earth, and a coastline like this would be a magnet for hotel chains, global tourist operators and real estate developers. But for some reason Tasmania’s east coast remains a quiet, charming and relatively undiscovered corner of the world lined with quaint little towns and spectacular national parks. We spent five days exploring the east coast from our rental home in Four Mile Creek, a town consistently of exactly four streets, a children’s playground and a cricket ground. Our balcony overlooked [...]

斯里蘭卡雖然只是島國,面積只有1.8個台灣大,卻擁有六個世界文化遺產,歷史文化主要受鄰國印度影響,成為文明古國。斯里蘭卡人的祖先主要是北印度的僧加羅人和南印度的泰米 獅子岩是我包車旅程的第一個景點,也是最令我印象深刻的一個。出發前看過一些獅子岩的照片,貌似是一個公園裏的岩石,沒有抱太大期望,還有一刻猶豫要不要去看一個石頭,怕是個很商業化的景點。 後來在書上看了獅子岩的介紹,慢慢引起我對這個石頭的好奇心。首先,這不只是一個石頭,是一個如山般大的岩石,高一百米即三十多層樓高,而面積大得可以在岩上建造古城。在四面平原上要形成一個巨型岩石,地球上應該不多,這個天然現象足以令我嘆為觀止。   其次令我好奇的是,獅子岩背後耐人尋味的故事。考古學家認為獅子岩從公元三世紀開始已是佛教重地,是僧侶前往修行的地方,因為在斯里蘭卡人眼中,平地上的突出山和石都是神聖的。直至到公元五世紀,獅子岩見證了一段摩利耶王朝獨特歷史。當時的王子卡薩帕 (Kashyapa) 因母親的平民身分,即使是長子也沒法繼承王位,便弒父奪位。但謀朝篡位後,又怕弟弟復仇,於是把首都由阿努拉德普勒 (Anuradhapura) 遷到錫吉里阿 (Sigiriya),並在獅子岩上建造了城堡。城堡佔盡地理優勢,居高臨下,易守難攻。 Sigiriya是首都,不只有國王住的城堡,所以古蹟還包括外城區,獅子岩的外圍也有零星遺址。買門票的旁邊有一個關於獅子岩的博物館,展覽有介紹獅子岩的歷史和展出一些古物,在攀登獅子岩前可以好好認識歷史,值得一去。 走向獅子岩的路,兩旁是庭園式,有儲水池、噴泉、小屋的遺址等等,格局整齊,這庭園在全盛時代一定更美。 獅子岩除了古城遺址,還有千年壁畫和鏡牆。壁畫雖飽歷風霜,仍然顏色鮮豔,保存完整,這是我意想不到的。作品主題以妃嬪、侍女為主,女性體態畫得豐滿,肚間肥肉更是刻意描繪,反映出古代人的審美觀。有趣的是,相隔千五年,現代的斯里蘭卡人的審美觀似乎沒有變,瘦弱的女生在這國家古今都不吃香,豐滿至腰間有肉才是王道。 不過,這畫廊的位置讓我費解,畫廊位於岩石一半高度左右的內陷位,遊客上落靠一條螺旋樓梯。那麼美的壁畫為何畫在難以到達的位置呢?畫在這地方給誰欣賞呢?有一說法是壁畫是國王卡薩帕為填補弒父的內疚,畫是送給亡父的,不是用來裝飾皇宮。 行過畫廊後,接著就是鏡牆 (Wall of Mirror),鏡牆是一道磨得很平滑的牆,傳聞平滑得可以映照自我(Self-reflection)。可能我修行未夠高或是內心不夠平靜吧,我只見到一道牆。 浴著樓梯繼續爬,會到達一個平台。這平台就是獅子岩的獅子要塞,王城的主入口就在此,門口雕刻成巨型獅子爪,威風凜凜,氣勢足以嚇退敵人。 想要登頂只能走這條樓梯,雖然樓梯已修葺好,但也不是易事,皆因樓梯傍便是數個蜜蜂巢。我從未試過跟蜂巢如此接近,又好奇又恐懼。對懼高的人來說,建在這峭壁的樓梯是另一挑戰。 由樓梯頂踏上獅子岩頂的一刻,第一印象是很像馬丘比丘,不同的是獅子岩不是四面環山,而是可以遠眺平原的叢林和河川,猶如置身宮崎駿動畫裏的「天空之城」。 古城應有盡有,有宮殿、皇座、浴池、儲水池的遺址。因為到訪時正值乾旱季節,水池儲水很少。岩石上只有零星樹木,烈日當空下,無遮無掩。加上身在高處,四面當風,頭髮被吹到亂飛,老實說站久了覺得這環境挺難受,難以想像古代的人如何在此生活。 看著這篇遺址,百思不得其解為何這國王要把宮殿建在岩石上,這裡除左風景超好外,其他條件似乎很惡劣。岩石頂的空間有限,難以畜牧。要是遇上旱季,水儲得不夠的話,難道要從地面運水上去,當年的科技能應付嗎? 獅子岩的軍事優勢是易守難攻,那麼缺點不就是容易被圍困,易缺水缺糧。難怪這古城在建成後的十一年,被卡薩帕國王的弟弟復仇成功了。獅子岩的風光由建造到被攻陷就是那麼短暫,只剩下唏噓。 把宮殿建在岩石上無非都是為了虛榮感,跟住在高層豪宅一樣,生活起來處處不便,還要承受狂風,實在是瘋子所為!

The Ultimate Travel Guide to Stockholm’s Gamla Stan

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

A trip to Stockholm isn’t complete without a trip to Gamla Stan. The city’s Old Town, and one of the largest and best preserved medieval city centers in Europe, this is after all where Stockholm began, all the way back in 1252.

Made up of 4 islands, Gamla Stan is mainly focused on the largest of the group, historically known as Stadsholmen. Stockholm itself means “log island” and as the legend goes, Swedes looking for a new capital that was safe from armed gangs, had filled a log with gold and sent it adrift. When it landed on what is now Gamla Stan, they knew they had found their new capital city.

Gamla Stan is a living museum filled with beautiful churches, narrow winding cobblestone streets, colourful architecture, the finest restaurants, and accommodation to suit all tastes. This is the real Stockholm, and where every Stockholm adventure should begin.

Consider this your ultimate guide to staying, playing, and eating in Gamla Stan.

Move Over Las Vegas; Here are 3 Reasons Why Tourists Prefer Macau

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Thanks to appearances in countless Hollywood movies, Las Vegas has been widely regarded as the gambling capital of the world, with the bright lights of Sin City drawing visitors from around the globe for many decades.

However, the famous Nevada city can no longer claim to be the king of casino culture, and, in truth, hasn’t been for just over a decade now.

Rising to park itself firmly on that particular throne is Macau, which has transformed itself remarkably from what was once a sleepy fishing port to a booming Asian tourist destination at the top of many ‘must visit’ lists. Move over Las Vegas, because Macau is where the action is!

Why Sri Lanka Inspires for a Second Trip

Since I started travelling four years ago, I have been lucky enough to experience truly varied cultures and places, many of which I hold dear. Sri Lanka, however, has always had a special place in my heart and I’ve made it my mission to convince everyone else of its merits.

Despite a troubled past, Sri Lanka and its people are well on their way to a full recovery. More than that, they are very welcoming to people who wish to experience the beauty of their country and perhaps contribute a bit to stimulating the local economy.

I had such a great experience in Sri Lanka that I even decided to start my own blog about the country and inspire as many people as possible to visit! You can find the blog at takemetosrilanka.com.

With friendly people, incredible food, and stunning locations throughout the country, there are plenty of reasons to choose Sri Lanka as your holiday destination. You’ll love Sri Lanka for the following reasons, and it’s for these reasons that the country will inspire a second trip!

Dear Female Travelers: Reasons Knixwear Is the Greatest Travel Underwear You’ll Ever Own!

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Forget your passport, when it comes to travel, appropriate underwear is one of the most essential things. (Don’t actually forget your passport, but I’m sure you get what I meant!)

But traditional cotton underwear isn’t always the best option for travel – they’re slow drying and they absorb moisture meaning cotton isn’t the most comfortable or hygienic thing to wear for extended periods of time.

Underwear might be one of those things you don’t think twice about, but purchasing a pair for the practicalities of travel can make or break a trip. There are plenty of options out there for travel-specific underwear, but when it comes to being specifically designed for women, Knixwear is a Canadian based brand you should know.

The following are seven reasons why Knixwear is the greatest travel underwear you’ll own. But the biggest reason? The amount of confidence you gain from wearing them, for all the reasons below.

Things You Need to Know About the Mount Everest Base Camp Trek

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Are you looking for an extreme trekking challenge? Then you’ll love Nepal’s epic 62-kilometer trek to Everest Base Camp which lies 5,365 meters above sea level.

The Mount Everest base camp trek will take you through tiny mountain villages and pine forests, alongside topaz rivers and across staggeringly-high suspension bridges to the foot of the world’s highest mountain. However, with sub-zero temperatures and altitude sickness to contend with this isn’t a challenge for the faint-hearted.

Having completed the trek myself, here are some important tips on how to survive the journey to Everest Base Camp.

[越南] 新咖啡巴士攻略

by Queenie @ Eatwalkfeel

三星期的Grad trip我撥了十一天的時間在越南,總共去了五個城市,關於越南我遊記在我的Blog也著墨不少,陸續也有網友問我怎樣去我介紹的城市。所以小妹就大膽出一個越南交通攻略給大家參考,如有錯誤,請指教! 越南的版圖是長型的,兩個大城市,胡志明市和河內分別位於南北兩端。計劃路線時可選由南至北或由北至南,如果由中部 (例如峴港)入境的話,建議向南或向北取捨,避免走回頭路。 小妹的上一站是暹粒,我從陸路入境到胡志明市,由於時間關係,只能北上至越南中部,然後從峴港飛回香港。我的路線如下: 胡志明市>美奈>大叻>(芽莊)>會安>峴港 越南國內穿梭各大城市的交通,有三種主要交通工具。 (一) 飛機  沒有選擇的原因 :內陸線主要是越南航空,查一下官網發現大叻飛峴港要2000多港元,便打消念頭。貴得太不合理,而且不是毎個機場都接近市區,的士錢或許足夠在越南吃法國菜。 (二) 火車  沒有選擇的原因 :不是毎一個城市都有鐵路連接,像美奈只有巴士連接,而且火車相比巴士貴很多。 (三) 巴士  最後選擇:連接市區到市區,如果酒店訂在附近的話就更方便,走一個街口就到巴士站,不用額外花的士錢。價錢平到難以置信,六小時的車程只需20港元。 越南本地巴士公司很多,其中新咖啡 (舊名:The Sinh Cafe,新名:The Sinh Tourist) 在遊客中口碑不錯。新咖啡來回的城市很多,經常有越南人同車,小妹來往五個城市全是乘新咖啡。 近年有不少新的巴士公司務起,小妹未乘過就不予辦論。我總共乘了五次新咖啡的巴士,真心推薦給大家。新咖啡毎一次都準時出車,到達時間也準時,由大叻下山更提早了半小時到達芽莊。而且,毎一程車都會派支裝水和濕紙巾,服務合格。 新咖啡使用說明書 買票: 車票分兩種,Open bus和單程票。Open bus可以一次過購買將會用的車票,我不建議使用,因為購買時就要選擇毎一程的出發時間,出發前一天又要去確認位置,太麻煩了!單程票可以上官網訂購或直接去各城市門市購票,官網可以用信用卡付款,門市只收現金。根據我的觀察,除了芽莊、會安兩個中轉站乘客較多,其他路線乘客都不多,出發前一天購票就能確保位置。我建議到門市才購票,令行程保留彈性。 時間表:可以上官網看看,不是毎一個城市都有直接來回,例如想從峴港去美奈就一定要經會安和芽莊。 巴士型號:有分Sitting和Sleeping兩種,跟車程長短沒有關係。Sitting那種像香港的小巴,可坐 6-12人。Sleeping就等於Sleeper bus,座位是上下床舖,上車要除鞋,腳底有空間可以放隨身行李 (有多少空間視乎你的身高!),這種Sleeper bus睡著比坐著舒服。 溫馨提示:巴士準時出發,所以一定不可以遲到。坐Sitting bus的話提早15分鐘到車站,建議問一問職員巴士到達了沒有,早到可以先選位置。坐Sleeping bus的話則要提早30分鐘到車站,因為需要劃位,不能自選位置。 膳食安排:乘長途巴士難免會肚餓或人有三急,司機也不例外。司機會在路上餐廳或補給站停車,餐牌上有什麼就吃什麼,有飯或越式法包或咖啡。由於司機多數不發一言,自行下車就買他需要的,如果擔心停留時間的話,可以先問問他要何時上車才點餐,最好坐司機附近,看看他眼色就不用太擔心。即使不想吃東西,也要全部人下車休息,這習慣只適用於Sitting bus。 希望大家覺得資料有用,下次分享乘新咖啡過夜巴士的經驗!    [越南] 過夜巴士 (芽莊->會安)

An Overview of Different Travel Bags: Why it’s so Important to Choose the Right Bag for Your Trip

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

I’m sure every traveler at some stage has found themselves in the situation where they’re stuck traveling with the wrong kind of bag.

Whether it’s trying to lug a suitcase through the jungle and beating the crap out of your wheels (been there), or throwing everything into a hiking pack for a stay at a luxury hotel, a travel experience is often about choosing the right kind of bag.

And there are many different types of bags, which will be suitable for different types of trips. So don’t fall into the trap of thinking any bag will do, because you just need something which will transport your things.

Bags are not sacks. They are not meant to be used as sacks. Bags are painstakingly blueprinted to strike a perfect balance between design and utility, for specific types of trips.

So to avoid committing ‘bags faux pas’, consider the following types of bags, and which will be most suitable for your upcoming trip.

My Top 5 Movies of 2017

by noreply@blogger.com (Bex) @ Double Skinny Macchiato

The flip side of all the travel I've been doing this year is that I've had only limited time (and money) to spend on movies. Some of long-haul flights I took did allow me to catch up on films that I wanted to see at the cinema this year, but I only managed 18 cinema visits, and saw a further 18 films (some of which were re-watches) at home or on planes or buses. I did my best to see as many of this year's major releases as I could and also caught a few indie films, especially when prompted my free (preview screening) or cheap (Peckhamplex) tickets. Next year, I'm going to try to do better.

1. Moonlight. I went to see Barry Jenkins' remarkable film — which chronicles in a clever triptych structure the youth of a gay, African-American male growing up in the projects in Miami — at New York's iconic Angelika Film Center not quite knowing what to expect. Or, rather, I thought I knew exactly what to expect, but Jenkins confounded my expectations with its beautiful, melancholy and utterly moving coming-of-age tale. The performances are powerful, the three distinct sections fit together perfectly and this genre-defying film stayed with me for days. By turns heart-breaking, uplifting, intimate and all-encompassing, Moonlight gripped me throughout its 1h50 running time and left me wanting to spend more time with the central character in Jenkins' harsh but sensual world.

2. Dunkirk. Like Moonlight, Christoper Nolan's Dunkirk is also a story in three parts, but this time they are intricately interwoven and — because this is Nolan — they also take place over different timescales that range from one hour to one week. The central story is the odds-defying evacuation of trapped Allied soldiers during the titular World War II battle. Owing in part to the fact that World War II was covered in neither my GCSE history nor A-level (early-modern) history syllabuses, it wasn't a story I knew much about before watching the film, but I think that made Nolan's storytelling even more dramatic. There are some fantastic performances, including from RAF pilot Tom Hardy's sole visible eye, shellshocked soldier Cillian Murphy and especially Mark Rylance who, as usual, steals every scene in the most understated of ways as the skipper of one of the hundreds of civilian boats that were crucial in the rescue operation. Visually stunning and with a haunting score from Hans Zimmer, Dunkirk was rather overwhelming and definitely the kind of film you should watch on as big a screen as possible (I saw it at the Gloucester Cinema in Massachusetts, a rather low-tech venue where I also happened to see Jurassic Park, some 24 years earlier).

3. Call Me By Your Name. I had hoped to watch Luca Guadagnino's Italy-based coming-of-age story at the London Film Festival, partly because I was so impressed with Armie Hammer's performances in the two films I saw him in during last year's festival, Free Fire and Nocturnal Animals but I couldn't get a ticket. Instead, I finally caught up last week at a packed screening at the Peckhamplex. In the film, 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) is spending another summer with his academic parents at their villa in a small northern Italian town. Each summer, Elio's father (Michael Stuhlbarg) hosts a graduate student at the villa as a research assistant and this year, it is the turn of tall, handsome, confident Oliver (Hammer). Over the course of the summer, the friendship between Elio and Oliver grows, as does Elio's own confidence and sense of self, gently encouraged by his cultured, liberal parents. Call Me By Your Name is beautifully shot and perfectly captures those lazy dog day afternoons of the southern European summer. It's a slow-burner, for sure, but builds up momentum without you noticing, and by the time it reached its crushing conclusion, I was completely captivated. Both Hammer and Chalamet were very good, and there's a certain monologue during the final act that Stuhlbarg nails.

4. The Death of Stalin. Armando Iannucci's darkest of dark comedies, The Death of Stalin, was just what the world needed in 2017. The film offers a depiction of Stalin's final days and the chaotic aftermath of his death, as his advisors circle, posture, plot and betray. It is a funny film, and there is a cracking script that crackles with energy, as well as some top-notch performances (Isaacs and Buscemi were particularly good) from the ensemble cast, most of whom seem have impeccable comic timing. Of course, many of the laughs are more nervous chuckles at the absurdity of what is happening, and at times, you do wonder whether it's even appropriate for you to be laughing (which is precisely the point Iannucci is trying to make, I'm sure).

5. The Handmaiden. Not to be confused with The Handmaid's Tale, Chan-Wook Park's film The Handmaiden is based on a novel by Sarah Waters called Fingersmith, although I only found this out after watching the film. Park's most famous film Oldboy is an all-time favourite of mine and I also enjoyed his English-language film Stoker. Based on these past experiences, I was expecting The Handmaiden to be both twisty and violent and it certainly delivered. It's hard to say too much about the plot without spoiling the film, but it centres around two young women in 1930s Japan-occupied Korea. One woman is a wealthy heiress, who is kept in isolation by her uncle on her large estate. The other is hired as her handmaiden, but has other intentions and plans for the heiress too. At almost 2h30 long, The Handmaiden kept me gripped throughout with its clever, unexpected volte-faces, leaving the viewer in a constant state of uncertainty about whom to trust and with whom to sympathise. Park is a master storyteller and this film is well worth seeking out.

NB: I did later read Waters' novel, but enjoyed it somewhat less than the film — perhaps because I knew what was coming.

The complete list of films I watched this year is as follows (re-watches are in italics:

- Silence
- Children of Men (home)
- Sing Street (home)
- Hidden Figures
- Boys Don't Cry (TV)

[越南] 過夜巴士 (芽莊->會安)

by Queenie @ Eatwalkfeel

過夜巴士不是毎一個人都適合,睡覺時怕吵、怕陌生人或在車上沒法入睡的人,和一定要洗澡的人,都不適合。乘過夜巴士即使能入睡,也是一件很累的事,所以沒法在車上入睡的人還是可免則免。 當然過夜巴士 (Sleeper bus/Overnight bus) 有大派用場的時候,當目的地太遠,車程需要8小時以上,過夜巴不會浪費日天觀光的時間,更可以節省了一晚住宿,黑夜裡趕路,隔天醒來就繼續玩樂。 (想知道我的越南行程和如何利用巴士穿梭越南各城市,可看看 [越南] 新咖啡巴士攻略 。) 由於我毎到一個城市才買去下一站的車票,在高海拔的山城大叻,我問了兩家巴士公司都沒有直接去會安和峴港的車。經過我仔細格價後,我買了新咖啡的車票先下山到芽莊,停留數小時再乘過夜巴士去會安古城。幸好地,我下山的車遇上了「越南藤原拓海」,竟然比原定時間早了半小時到達芽莊,距離過夜巴士出發還有兩個半小時,吃晚餐和休息的時間充裕! 轉車等待的時間,我想把行李寄存在新咖啡辦公室,起初職員拒絕,因為地上已堆滿其他乘客的行李。我告訴他,賣票員答應了可以寄存,那職員才讓我寄存。如果乘新咖啡的巴士可以嘗試寄存行李,不過他們不會負責任何損失。我覺得新咖啡的職員挺可靠,我在會安的早上也有寄存,他們把行李放進一間職員房間。 約兩小時的轉車時間,我先好奇的看看芽莊沙灘,人超多! 芽莊交通很混亂,電單車亂走,靠著交通警才勉強過了馬路。填飽了好奇心,就找了一家餐廳填飽肚子,點了百吃不厭的牛河! 吃飽上路,睡得更好! 去會安的過夜巴士將於傍晚七時出發,出發前半小時要到辦公室劃位,職員會把同行的盡量安排一起。隨票附送一張字條,提醒我小心財物,因為這程車很多小偷。 我只帶了一件外套和隨身袋進車廂,行李就一定要放車底行李箱。一入車廂司機就會要求除鞋,他會給一個膠袋放鞋子,附送水和濕紙巾。我提著鞋進內找位置,發現地板很清楚,應該是限制不得穿鞋的好處。 去會安過夜巴士用的是Sleeper bus,有上下床舖,床舖不是安全平坦的,輕微傾斜像按摩椅。毎個床舖上都放了一張被子,有膠袋入起,我不會期望被子毎次都有清洗,但打開挺乾淨的,沒有異味。床舖不硬,頭的位置有軟枕,我試倘一下覺得意外地舒服。以前在歐洲也乘過過夜巴士,都只是椅子,睡得很辛苦。反而新咖啡這設計不錯,而且一排三張床,上下舖共六張床,車廂能容納很多人。我睡中間的下舖位,我覺得這位置最方便,因為要上洗手間的話,兩邊走廊都可以用,下舖又不用爬樓梯。 腳的下方有一個空間,三面密封,只有腳伸進去的一面可以拿到東西。隨身行李只能放這裡,因為車廂沒有行李架。我只有155cm高,雙腳伸直後,腳底空間充裕,足夠放一雙鞋和我個隨身袋,如果是背包應該不太可能。我看其他人都把東西藏得好好,所以即使高一點也能容納,安全一點還是不要帶太多東西上車。東西藏在腳底,我覺得挺安心,如果別人要偷一定會把我弄醒,如果這都可能被偷我就無話可說了。 由芽莊晚上七點出發,預計明早六點就會到會安。車出發後,大約兩小時多就有休息,有洗手間。洗手間時間有點混亂,要小心財物。後來到了零晨時分,我發現司機平均毎一小時停一次休息,有一次直接在路上停了,沒有洗手間的。我懷疑是司機累了,毎小時都要休息一次,或是公司規定零晨巴士要休息。我是車一停我就會醒過來的人,弄得我毎小時醒一次,不過車上大部分都睡得很甜。 早上六時準時到達會安! 這是我乘過最舒服的過夜巴士,下車不會感到腰酸背痛,只是有點睏,還有精力去找早餐吃和逛會安古城。 總結這一程越南過夜巴士,還是值得推薦的,準時又好睡,車廂整潔,最重要是十一個小時的車程才80多港元,實在沒有埋怨了。車上有很多外國背包客作伴,可以放心乘搭,獨遊也可以趕快交個朋友互相照料。

[越南] 峴港 – 世界六大最美的海灘

by Queenie @ Eatwalkfeel

老實說,當初選擇峴港做 Grad trip最後一站,純粹是因為 HKExpress 開了直航。計劃峴港行程時也沒有什麼景點特別吸引,美山遺址跟吳哥窟是占婆文化兄弟,爬了三天吳哥窟後我有點審美疲勞就不去了,而巴拿山和纜車跟大叻法式山城相比,吸引力也不高。旅程還有數天便要完結,不想跑太遠的景點,只想放鬆心情享受越南的慢半拍。 關於如何利用越南巴士網絡由峴港來回各城市,可看看  [越南] 新咖啡巴士攻略。 峴港能吸引我的只有美溪沙灘 (My Khe Beach),看看地圖,沙灘位於峴港市東面,由山茶半島向南廷伸長達一公里。美溪沙灘很長,向著一望無際的東越南海,曾入選福布斯世界六大最美的海灘之一,這美譽令我超期待。 由於我不是住近沙灘的resort,我租了單車從市區踏過去,踏十五分鐘左右就到沙灘入口了。聽說越向南走,沙灘更美,水更清,真的越南越愛。所以我沒有下車,一直踏單車至到大型渡假村,渡假村都把沙灘最美的一帶私有化了,一家接一家用牆圍起來,只有住客可以進入,很可惜。 附近有一間士多可以付錢沖洗和租借Locker,不過設備太簡陋就沒有光顧。最後我找到一家酒店營運的沙灘酒吧,即使不是住客,不點飲品,也可以租借沙灘傘和沙灘椅。酒吧對出海灘有一個大型浮台,像 T字型的碼頭。 中午過後熱得要死,沙灘南邊一帶較少人,大膽放下物品在沙灘椅後,便衝進水裡。美溪沙灘的水溫剛剛好,泡在水中很清涼,沙軟又幼不會刺腳。 我跟一群越南孩子一起在浮台跳水,玩了一個下午。旁邊還有一堆越南大媽扶著浮波泡著消暑。有些人說美溪大浪,不宜游水,其實要看位置的,近通往市區主要道路的北邊較大浪,近渡期村的南邊就平靜一點,就看你想玩水上活動還是游水。 快到傍晚,我踏單車回去的路上發現這個時間是最多人的,一批一批的遊客由旅行車送到,也有很多本地人趁著太陽下山前來游水。沿著沙灘,看到有人玩水上拖傘、沙灘排球等。美溪沙灘真的很適合游水和各種水上活動,比想像中更美,而且清潔得令我驚訝,無論水中或沙上都沒有垃圾,至少我記不起有碰到。 話說要被福布斯選上,要看交通是否便利、沙灘是否免費開放、長度、平坦度、是否適合水上活動、陽光、安全和旅遊配套等,親自體驗過後,我覺得美溪沙灘條件都能符合,加上望里無雲,水清沙幼,還有椰林樹影,配得上「全球最美六大海灘」的美譽。 峴港除了美景,還集合了南北美食,下次再寫。

An Unintended Trip to Sula Vineyards: Discovering India’s Napa Valley in Nasik

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

A 3 to 4 hour drive from Mumbai, Sula Vineyards is the oldest winery in India. It is a fabulous way to unwind from the hectic bustle of city life, where you can discover the place where Indians first experienced wine.

In 1996, Rajeev Samant planted the first wine grapes in Nashik and today this region is India’s premier wine-growing region, producing 80% of the country’s total wine.

Spread over a total of over 3000 acres, Sula’s vineyards are home to some of India’s finest grapes, so if you’re looking for a place for your next wine tour, you should visit Nashik, in Maharashtra state.

This is India’s Napa Valley; after Sula Vineyards was established in 1999, 35 other wineries followed suit in the region over the next decade. It’s quite incredible how one man paved the way for the emergence of India’s Wine Capital.

After having visited the Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors Exhibit at Hirshhorn Museum in person, I would say that it was out of this world experience to me. I found very helpful to know about the Kusama exhibit before going there because it is a very different museum experience from the usual ones. My two friends who had already gone to the exhibit and inspired me to go helped me prepare by teaching me some facts and details about the exhibit before I headed to the museum. About Yayoi Kusama The avant-garde artist and writer, Yayoi Kusama, was born in Nagano, Japan. She was born to an affluent family, but had a traumatic childhood due to her father’s extra-marital relationships and her mother’s abusive behavior […]

My Favorite Places in Kamakura ☆ Japan

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

Kamakura City ☆ Japan Kamakura is a city South West of Tokyo with many temples and shrines, and a beach vibe. This lovely coastal city has become my children’s favorite destination during our trip back to Japan in the summer. In Kamakura you see traditional Japanese architecture coexist with modern stylish buildings. The city lies on the coast facing the Pacific Ocean and many of its beaches are surfers’ hangouts. It is a great place for a short get away from Tokyo since it only takes about an hour from the central Tokyo by train, Shonan Shinjuku Line. You will find Kamakura much more relaxing, lush, and traditional than it is in Tokyo. The photos I have taken and posted on this post were all taken and edited with a VSCO Cam on my iPhone.

斯里蘭卡 – Mackwoods Labookellie Tea Centre 高山茶園

by Queenie @ Eatwalkfeel

斯里蘭卡屬於南亞地區,位於印度以南,給人的印象是炎熱。友人聽說我準備帶外套和長褲時,表現驚訝。其實,斯里蘭卡的中南部是高山,氣候清涼,盛產世界知名的鍚蘭紅茶,山上出產的茶葉更是供應給國際茶葉品牌,例如立頓Lipton。由斯里蘭卡第二大城市,聖城康提 (Kandy) 駕車上山至英國小鎮 努沃勒埃利耶 (Nuwara Eliya),需時約3.5小時,沿途的山區就是茶園最集中的地方,大大小小的茶園遍佈山頭,基本上毎一個山坡都種滿了茶榭,排列整齊。 上到山上就明白為何要帶保暖衣服了,因為Nuwara Eliya 城鎮海拔高度1,868米。雖然參觀的茶園海拔沒有那麼高,但不竟身處山中,陰晴不定,不時下起毛毛雨,山谷的風夾雜雨點迎面吹來真的有點冷。 Mackwoods 茶園是斯里蘭卡最大的茶園,雖然這山頭有不少遊客較少的茶園,但還是選了Mackwoods,因為它有一介紹茶葉的博物館和品茶茶室。Mackwoods大的令我驚訝,進出Mackwoods的前後約一小時車程,路過的山頭全都有Mackwoods招牌。   Mackwoods開放的觀光區很集中,進入大門後,就是茶室和商店的英式木屋。木屋的斜對面有一工廠,這就是所謂博物館了。個人喜歡先認識茶葉,再去品茶。茶廠不可自行參觀,要先到木屋的詢問處先找導遊帶tour,tour是跟其他遊客一組的,不定時開始,不另收費很大方。 我們的導遊是一個「採茶女」打扮的中年女士,以英文講解茶園運作。由茶樹的種植收割、如何採茶葉、茶葉製作過程到茶葉品級分類,她都仔細解釋,非常專業。導遊解釋茶葉製作過程時會帶我們參觀Mackwoods的工廠,可以看到不同過程所用的機器,例如烘乾、發酵等等。 茶主要分為未經發酵和發酵茶。未經發酵的茶又稱為White tea,如煎茶、綠茶、龍井等,white tea是最貴,營養價值最高的,通常取茶葉Bud的部分。而發酵茶又稱為Black tea,即是香港奶茶常用的紅茶或發酵最久的黑茶,茶葉發酵得愈久茶色愈深。導遊解釋發酵的過程中營養如茶多酚會流失,所以較次等的茶葉才會用作製造發酵茶,所以發酵茶一般都教未發酵茶貴。茶葉的檔次以茶葉切得多碎來分別,完整的茶葉最貴,Whole leave的錫蘭多以OP (orange pekoe) 標示,茶呈橙色。其次就是 Broken leaf,錫蘭茶包多是 BOP和 F BOP。檔次最差是碎得像粉的茶葉,Fannings的標示為 BOPF,這種茶因為表面面積大,茶色會很深。 了解過茶的知識,我們入去木屋內試茶。先找座位後,侍應便問我們要幾位茶,等一回茶就到了。試茶是免費的,我覺得這一點很大方,後來我們想再來一杯,他們給了我們一大壺。只嘆茶難免有點單調,所以茶室賣有蛋糕,只有朱古力一款口味,口感像英式Brownie,蛋糕和茶簡直是絕配。蛋糕毎件LKR250,我們毎人吃了兩件當午餐。茶室有分戶外和戶內座位,戶外可飽覽滿山茶榭的美景,戶內雅座裝飾像英國小木屋,各有特色!     山上的天氣時晴時陰,幸運地試茶後陽光出來了。Mackwoods停車場旁有一個「打卡位」平台可以跟大字牌合照。不過我嫌跟茶榭不夠親近,想跟茶榭迎距離接觸。在平台旁有一條樓梯往下走,可以走進茶榭叢裡。山谷下有一條水河,意外地發現Mackwoods有水力發電站,不過時間有限我沒有走下去看。   茶室旁就是手信店,個人認為要買 BOP等次的茶葉的話,超級市場更便宜更多選擇,不用在 Mackwoods 買。如果想買較高級的茶葉,可以在 Mackwoods 買,不竟大茶園質素有保證,不用再到處找好的茶葉店,而且包裝很華麗。 離開 Mackwoods 後我們繼續上山,向 Nuwara Eliya 前進,沿路仍然有很多茶樹,很多都立了 Maakwoods 的牌,令人依依不捨。

德國生活學到的五件事

by Queenie @ Eatwalkfeel

有機會去外國生活,最大得著一定是從外國人的生活文化中學習,反思自己的不足,最好就是把好習慣和好的工作態度帶回香港。   1.環保 -德國人的環保概念真真正正融入到生活中 買飲品,包括啤酒、水,會被徵收了環保稅,九成的膠樽和玻璃樽都可以回收退稅。在大型超市內會有自動回收機,把膠樽和玻璃樽放入機內,計算數量後即時退稅,退稅的收據可以在超市當現金使用。因為毎一個樽徵收大約2-5港元環保稅,一個人一個月可能就累積了30元,一個家庭的話就更多,所以回收退稅便成了習慣,正常人不會把一個值錢的容器隨便丟掉吧! 香港的建築物習慣把以安全為由,把公共地方的燈長開。我在香港住的大學宿舍,走廊和樓梯就是廿四小時照明。相反,我在德國的宿舍,走廊的燈晚上有人按制才會開燈,數分鐘後便會自動關掉。搬進去的初期,我完全不習慣,因為晚上走廊黑得伸手不見五指,長長的走廊靜得令我有點怯。我工作的地方,洗手間的燈是自動感應開關。就算是人手開關,德國人也養成很好的習慣,較少人去的地庫,他們四點就把燈全關掉,漆黑一片曾把我嚇到! 回到香港後,我因為沒法適應宿舍的嚴重光污染,失眠了一個月 (前一年我在同一個宿舍睡得超好),我很想念德國的節能習慣。我們的生活環境,很多地方其實真的沒有必要長期照明。   2.準時收工 - 準時對德國人來說真的很重要 我的工作返九收五,準時返工不用多說,我五點準時下班時,大部分的同事早已比我快一步放工了。我曾經因為Project進度落後,想星期六回去加班,但 Supervisor拒絕了。加班對德國人來說是很難接收的,做不完的事就留在下一個工作天做吧!而且,為了可以準時收工,有同事寧願早些開工,9點正大家早已埋頭苦幹。除了準時收工,我們開會準時,放Lunch準時,Lunch後開工也準時,無論教授或學生,無分大小都只有一小時Lunch,時間一到自動起身去工作。 準時收工不只是人離開了工作地方,德國人收工後一律不理工事,從來沒有一個人會在 Weekends回Email,星期五下午發的電郵,就要有心理準備對方星期一上午九時後回覆。這樣的假日才算真正收工了。   3.時間管理 -時間觀念嚴謹到不得不管理 工作方面,準時收工不代表工作進度可以落後,所以要好好計劃如何運用七個小時的辦工時間。日常生活裡,因為歷史違留下來的習慣,超級市場和店舖平日只營業到8pm,星期六到3pm,星期日則除了咖啡店全日休息。順帶一提,德國沒有廿四小時便利店的。 「如果假日即興想跟朋友開Party,想買啤酒怎麼辦?」我問。 「在德國沒有這回事,你要學會預早計劃Party。」同事回應。 在香港,晚上跟大學朋友即興飲酒作樂從不用擔心買不到酒,在德國就沒辦法了,所以事情都要預早計劃,沒有即興這回事。   4.堅持原則 -對母語他們有種堅持 德國的教育,由幼稚園到大學,都是以德文授課。更令我驚訝的是,不止是本科生,碩士和博士的考核如果是德國學生和考試官的話,德文是優先語言。我工作的研究所,因為九成是德國人,即使他們知道我不懂德文,會議都沒有遷就我,沿用德文。有天,我跟大隊去聽一個同事的博士論文答辯,我原以為高水平的研究用英文很平常,怎料他連簡報都用德文,一個小時多的德文答辯我聽懂不多於一成。他們對母語的堅持很徹底,連給我工作用的電腦軟件都是德文,害我花了很多時間適應。 反思香港,母語教學的地位很低,往往推崇英文學校,回歸後為迎合中國,很多學校和家長都要求普教中,在教育上從沒有原則和底線。   5.啤酒當水飲-德國啤是必需品 毎一間餐廳和咖啡店都有售賣生啤,不愁無酒喝,但不是毎一間都有賣汽水。超市的啤酒牌子比水多,超市刻意劃分一個區域賣飲品,裡面超過一半是啤酒,有時啤酒比水便宜。 除此之外,德國的果汁和牛奶比汽水便宜很多,一公升可樂要2歐,而一公升果汁賣0.7歐,汽水自然也喝少了。   去外國旅行或者短住,風景再美,食物再好,都是帶不走的。只有虛心從當地人身上學習,反省自己的不足,把好的文化盡量吸收。德國人對生活和工作的態度認真,影響我不少,慢慢改善自己,時間管理進步了很多。能夠把進步帶回家,是我到德國交流最大的收獲。

Shopping in Melbourne, where to get your fashion fix

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

Melbourne is defined by its suburbs, and almost every suburb has it’s own shopping precinct.

Melburnians are no shrinking violets when it comes to fashion, with many of the country’s trends starting right here in Australia’s fashion capital.

To make your shopping experience a little less intimidating, here is a selection of the biggest, best and most popular Melbourne shopping precincts for you to check out during your visit.

Work and travel? 10 pros and cons of freelancing on the road

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

While Sarah and I managed to accumulate a small pile of cash from selling everything we owned before leaving on our nomadic adventure, we knew we were going to have to work and travel if we wanted to do this for the long haul. Not only did we need to cover our travel expenses, but we also had two mortgages to service, and the rental income didn’t cover the repayments. When we got to Thailand, about five weeks into our trip, I managed to get a job teaching English in Chiang Mai. It was only 16 hours a week which gave me plenty of time to explore the area, but the pay was ordinary by Australian standards at $US9 per hour. That meant while I made enough to enjoy living in northern Thailand, it didn’t even come close to covering the mortgage repayments back home. It was during our two month stay in Chiang Mai that Sarah started working online as a freelance writer. She signed up to a couple of freelancing websites and began applying for writing jobs. Despite having no experience as a writer, in no time at all she managed to acquire several clients via Upwork. Initially [...]

Leather Bags ☆ Leather Field in Dharavi

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

LEATHER BAGS IN DHARAVI BY LEATHER FIELD If you are looking for a shop to have leather bags made, I highly recommend Leather Field. Leather Field is a shop in Dharavi, Mumbai that specializes in order made items such as purses, jackets, wallets, and so forth. According to the shopkeeper, Leather Field owns its workshop where their craftsmen work directly for them. I found that this system enables Leather Field to control product quality and prices better as opposed to some shops which seem to outsource their orders to independent workshops. What I loved about Leather Field was that they were always professional, punctual and reliable. Punctuality was not always seen at Famous Sales Leather Boutique that I previously used for making a few leather bag. The quality of craftsmanship at Leather Field was higher than the other shop I mentioned. Therefore, I started ordering from Leather Field in the […]

Experiencing a Whale Watching Tour in Sydney

by Sarah Appleford @ Travelling Apples

One of my most memorable experiences during our travels has been whale watching.  To see these enormous creatures launch majestically into the water is incredible.  So when I was up to Sydney for work, I couldn’t wait to catch the last of the humpback whale season with Oz Whale Watching tours. Gathered at King St Wharf 9 at 8am, we were a group of about 20 people with cameras eager to catch a glimpse of a whale or two.  Once on board we headed out through the Harbour guided by our host Biggles.  Sydney of course put on perfect weather for our outing which enabled us to soak up many of her sights including Luna Park, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Luna Park on the harbour’s edge The impressive Sydney Opera house best seen from the water Biggles’ voice could be heard in the background as we cruised towards the heads, sharing a bit of history of Sydney and about the whales themselves. During this time of year the humpback whales are making their way south, and sightings of mothers with their newborn calves can be had. This leg of their journey is a little slower than usual so [...]

by Mike @ Hanoi For 91 Days

Buying A Home Site Unseen

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

BUYING A HOME SITE UNSEEN Buying a home without seeing the actual property comes with a risk and is not ideal, let alone a huge commitment. Nevertheless, it is a choice that some people end up making because of their circumstances. Some expats, for example, buy a home site unseen when they are still living overseas so that they would secure a home to move into and a school to enroll their children on time, and start the process of the transition. It was mere a year ago or so when my husband and I made a final decision to buy our current home. We literally put on an offer during our vacation in Sri Lanka. It was a surreal experience and felt just like an online shopping. The difference was that there was no return policy. It was our first time to be a home buyer. Needless to say […]

The pink lakes of Murray Sunset National Park are truly breathtaking. Endlessly blue skies sit against bright pink waters and sparkling salt deposits; this is one phenomenon you have to see to believe.

Dilkhush Special School in Mumbai

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

DILKHUSH SPECIAL SCHOOL Dilkhush Special School is a school for children with intellectual challenges and special needs age from 6 to 18. The school was opened by the sisters of Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in 1971. It is located in Juhu, Mumbai near the Juhu Beach. Dilkhush Special School is the very first and only school existed in Mumbai for the children with special needs at the time of its opening. The first time I learned about Dilkhush was through my Japanese friends because the school and the church have fostered a relationship with a Japanese community in Mumbai for some time. I believe that this relationship started because of a Japanese sister, Keiko, also known as Sister Asunta in her church community. Sister Keiko was one of the sisters who helped make Dilkhush Special School. If you would like to know more about the school, please […]

Vietnam Visa On Arrival – everything you need to know

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

The whole idea of a Vietnam Visa On Arrival approval letter seems a little strange to me. Having to apply and send money to a website you don’t know is legit, to get emailed an approval letter that must be presented at your arrival airports Visa On Arrival office (with more money) before you get your visa is a real leap of faith, especially for the inexperienced traveller. Given Vietnam was the first country we went to when we left Australia, we were about as inexperienced as you can get. But this is the process we went through and it worked out perfectly. What is a Vietnam Visa On Arrival As the name suggests, a Vietnam Visa On Arrival is simply when you’re issued with your visa when you arrive by plane, as opposed to organising it before you leave your country. You can go through your local Vietnamese embassy to ensure you have a visa before you leave your country if you prefer, but it’s more expensive, you’ll need to send your passport away and it takes more time. The bonus is you can just walk through customs on arrival without having to head to the Visa On Arrival office, [...]

Things You Should Consider as a Responsible Traveler / EcoTourist in 2018

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

We’ve all seen the obnoxious tourists waddling out of Subway in some beautiful, ancestral city. Chances are, if you catch us on the right day, we’ve all been that tourist.

There is, however, a revolution in tourism that is really starting to take off. A whole new way of thinking which prioritizes responsible travel, and considers the impact we have on the communities and environments we visit abroad.

The negative impacts of tourism are usually pretty clear to the traveler feeling particularly perceptive. But ecotourism is the belief that travel should be ultimately beneficial to both the tourist and the host country.

There is a balance we should all try to find while traveling: remain safe but also truly experience the local scene. Make ripples, but not a splash. Take only memories, leave only footprints. The following are four key things to consider for those looking to travel responsibly in 2018.

Where to Lose and … Find Yourself in Greek Mykonos

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

The Aegean Sea has been characterized by many as the heart of the Mediterranean and has been commonly linked to colorful mythology, tales of pirates and fishermen, and, in recent years, as the hot-spot of cosmopolitan summer party life for island-hoppers.

Among the family of the Aegean islands however, stands one in particular which is perhaps its most precious jewel: Mykonos beams effervescently due west and it’s certainly not shy at showing it.

Being the favourite destination of vacationists worldwide, Mykonos has become synonymous to beautiful, luxurious and vibrant vacations. But Mykonos is so much more than what the eye meets: it’s actually the ideal place where you can lose yourself on its surface and also find it in its depth.

How to Book the Cheapest Hotels in 2018 (Which Match Your Travel Style Perfectly)

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

One of my biggest pieces of advice for booking a hotel has always been to ask yourself why. And the answer should be beyond the obvious “I need a place to stay for the night”.

Because millions of people are booking into hotels every night. But how many of them are actually getting their choice right?

The solution? Nustay; a new hotel search engine which has 1.2 million hotels at rates cheaper than any other online booking site (seriously). And, by crunching data about your interests, it matches you with hotels which reflect your travel style.

[德國生活] 周日市場

by Queenie @ Eatwalkfeel

上回提到,我入住德國小鎮基爾第一個星期日,因所有店舖休息而非常失望,不過也讓我了解到德國人的家庭日文化。 當然怕悶的不止我一人,喜歡逛街的也不止我一個。星期日的時候,當所有店舖休息,空出來的街道會不定期舉辦周日市集。市中心的購物街和市政廳廣場都被攤位擠滿,充分利用了公共空間。 但不要對貨物質素抱有太大期望,大部分的攤位都是把家裡的雜物拿出來賣,舊衫舊書舊袋,還有擺設和廚具等,簡直是德國鴨寮街。他們像收藏家,有攤位擺出過百本舊雜誌。 原本死氣沉沉的廣場頓時充滿生機,毎一個角落都被善用。周日市場賣的東西沒有統一主題,但卻吸引了很多人逛街,比星期六Shopping Day還要多。周日市集的概念不流於表面的買賣,更是連繫社區的活動,都是靠左鄰右舍自發組織,沒有大台。在基爾不只一個周日市集,在我住的社區周日市集就在超市 Famila 外的停車場舉行,這類市集是很貼地的社區活動,因為時間和地點只有住該區的人才知道。別說是來訪的郵輪旅客不會知道,我也是搬來一個月後才發現這小天地。 小妹覺得周日市場這個概念好有意義,販賣家中不再需要的東西,以低價轉售給有需要的人,概念很環保。我就在市場買了未開封的單車鏈和花瓶。 市政廳廣場原來的樣子,就是一片空曠,周日市集偏地開花時,我差點認不出廣場。(相片遺失了,只好用google map頂替。)

10 awesome things to do in Melbourne

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

There are so many things to do in Melbourne it would literally take days to write a single article. So instead I’m going to choose 10 of the best that I believe you should do if you ever visit my home town. Melbourne has now won ‘The World’s Most Liveable City’ award, presented annually by The Economist, five years in a row. That’s an incredible achievement by anyone’s standards, but it’s easy to see why. No matter what you’re into there’s something for you to do, like dining in first-class restaurants, attending a wide range of sporting events in world-class stadiums, taking in a play or musical in gorgeous theatres, or experiencing masterpieces in our amazing arts precinct. There is of course just one problem with Melbourne, it’s expensive. There’s no escaping it, you’ll need a little money in your pocket to fully appreciate this city. But by using services like Couchsurfing, the free inner city trams, and free events that can be found at That’s Melbourne, you can definitely have a great time without breaking the bank. You could also do a free walking tour when you first arrive so you can work out where everything is and get [...]

Accidentally Homeschooling My Pre-K Child

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

Accidentally Homeschooling I have been homeschooling my pre-k son. I say “accidentally” because it wasn’t in my plan to homeschool him. In fact, I was preparing to send him to a preschool. We live in the area where almost all preschool aged children especially at his age (as far as I know) go to a preschool. “Accidentally homeschooling” because if we didn’t move back to the D.C. metropolitan area in the last year of my son’s preschool, I probably would have not chosen this path. In expat life it’s not uncommon to fall into a situation accidentally. Expat Life & Pre-School Overseas My son attended a local Montessori preschool in Mumbai, India for a year and a half starting at the age of 3. After school, he often had a play date. Sometimes I took him to a play date and many other times, play dates were conducted by nannies. […]

34 bite sized travel tips to make life easier

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

When you travel nomad-style, slowly moving from place to place, you very quickly learn plenty of travel tips to make your life just that little bit easier. Stopping and soaking up the culture of a place, rather than ticking tourist attractions off a bucket list, is very different to using your 3-4 weeks off work every year to lie on a beach at a resort. Whether you’re travelling alone, with someone else, or as a family like we do, you’ll very quickly learn what works and what doesn’t for you and your particular needs and circumstances. Our first destination when we left Australia was Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, and before we’d left our first hotel we’d made changes to the way we travelled.

So, to give you a head start on things to think about for when you start travelling, or even if you’re already on your way, here are 34 bite sized travel tips to make you’re travel life a bit easier.

Dermatitis Cased By Preservatives ☆ Isothiazolinone

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

Dermatitis & Change In Environment An international move takes a toll on expats’ health causing a strain on their physical and emotional state induced by stress of transition. A drastic change in environments can trigger health issues. For instance, introducing ourselves to new household products and cosmetics overseas (and even back home) can cause dermatitis for those who are sensitive to chemicals. That is what happened to me. I have been suffering from contact dermatitis on my face especially on my eyelids and forehead since my family and I moved back to the United States from overseas in July, 2016. A couple of months after my dermatitis had started and the rash had become aggravated, I saw two dermatologists. Unfortunately both of the visits ended in vain. They neither helped me with a solution to the issue nor gave me any directions to seek. A half year later, my issue […]

Four Places Worth Visiting in Santorini

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

As your ferry approaches the port of Santorini and you watch the island getting closer and closer, it’s easy to believe that you’re sailing into the view of one of Alfred Sislay’s idyllic paintings.

On the southernmost border of the Aegean archipelago, Santorini is not only considered to be one of the most beautiful islands of Greece, but one of the most stunning in the world.

Once you set foot on the island, Santorini will take you on a trip into its past: it’s here you’ll come face to face with the ancient Minoan civilization and the magnificent frescoes it left behind, the grand and fearsome eruption of its volcano and the huge caldera that’s still marveled at by thousands of tourists each year, and of course, its beautiful re-birth as one of the most picturesque places of this Earth.

These are the four top places to visit while you’re there.
