The two passports 兩本護照的故事

Processed with Rookie

這趟旅程從這兩本護照開始

Iris, 來自臺灣

Nick, 來自韓國

去年夏天,我們在西雅圖相識 (這又是另外一個故事了),

今天夏天,我們在歐洲展開40天的旅程。

幾個月前,Nick突然提起暑假前往歐洲旅遊的這個想法,因為太突然了,當時還以為他在跟我開玩笑,歐洲耶。雖然出過幾次國,但歐洲這塊領土卻一次也沒踏上過,常常覺得老了或是賺了錢再去吧。

關於旅遊,韓國學生似乎跟台灣學生的想法很不一樣,因為韓國有兵役問題(男性需服兵役18個月),而且通常會在大學四年期間服兵役(我覺得超詭異的),他們會把握大學一二年級的暑假長期旅遊。也是,以後若忙於大學課業,甚至出了社會,會許就不會有那麼多時間,和那麼長的假期了。

於是,沒去過歐洲的我們抱著必須好好做功課的心態,開始安排行程,理想狀態是規劃出想去的城市,定好飯店,安排好路線。不過理想終究還是理想,以上的理想一個都沒有達成!一直到出國前,我們只定好了飛往巴黎的機票,第一週的飯店,其餘的行程一片空白,傳到橋頭自然直這句話就該用在這個時候。也因為這樣,這趟旅程非常自由,充滿了莫名其妙的鳥事,但卻也很順利。

The journey began with these two passports,

Nick, from Korea,

Iris, from Taiwan.

We started planning our trip couple of months ago before our departure, but I gotta have to say all we did was having our flight to Paris booked. Since we were still apart at the time and both busy, It was hard to get things organised and prepared. So, what you are about to see is a VERY free and adventurous 40 days traveling journey base on Europe.

Since it was not a straight flight to Paris, our first stop was Japan! Luckily we got to stay in Narita, Japan for one night before leaving for out next stop Vienna.

第一站:東京(成田)

因為並不是直飛巴黎,我們的第一站是東京成田機場,並且短暫的停留一晚。

因為隔天是早上的飛機,我們並沒有進到東京市區,而是在成田市區住了一晚。曾經來過日本幾次,美味的食物,乾淨的街道,超親切的人們,以及可愛的文化,日本總是讓人想一來再來。雖然只是短暫的停留,但是該吃的美食還是要吃!

I’ve traveled to Japan 3 times in my life, and I just loved this country so much, you can probably judge by how much I love sushi, when it comes to food Japan would never let you down.

After all settled down in our Hotel ( Hotel Info down below), we decided to went out to seek for dinner. We had a hard time choosing what to eat since all the Japanese restaurant all look so GOOOOD! But eventually we walked in to this restaurant across the street from our hotel, which turned out to be a brilliant decision.

這間餐廳就位於我們的飯店斜對面(飯店資訊於文末),『こだわりもん 一家 成田店』,是連鎖餐廳,非常推薦!

一走進去便聽見超一致又有活力的歡迎光臨,廚房是開放式的,可以清楚看見廚師如何料理食材,服務生很帥(哈哈哈),餐點非常新鮮好吃,因為看不懂菜單所以亂點,每一道都是驚喜,完全沒有地雷~~~~

We were welcomed by a energetic Japanese greeting, a giant open kitchen where you can see clearly how the chef is cooking the food, and a friendly good-looking waiter who kept talking to us in Japanese ( I found it interesting how Japanese just likes to talk to you in Japanese anyway though they know you don’t get a thing. I love it lol)

(豆腐冰淇淋,味道很像甜豆花,淋上黑糖,再灑鹽,非常好吃)

The food was fabulous, as well as the service, though we thought it was a little expensive at the time. But soon we learned that everything was cheap in Japan once we saw the price tags  in Europe…

來到日本當然不能錯過便利商店,完全就是零食天堂,而且充滿了抹茶(太~美~好~了~),隨變的餐盒看起來都很好吃,書架上的色情書刊也完全開放式沒在怕你拿(呃)。總之日本便利商店裡實在沒有買不到的東西,無印良品也自成一區,麵包架上隨便的麵包就超Q超好吃!

隔天是一早飛往維也納的飛機,雖然只當了短短一晚,但能再出發前往歐洲前先來到日本真的很幸福!

Thought it was a short night in Japan, we tried to do (eat) as much as we could. If you ever get to visit Japan, make sure you check out the convenience stores, a place packed of Japanese snacks, desserts, tea (I personally love green tea), variety of lunch boxes, or even Japanese porn magazine if you’d like(?). Anything, there’s nothing you can’t buy in a Japanese convenient store, even the cheap bread from there’s good.

We left early on the next morning for our flight to Vienna. Still we made sure that we had some Japanese ramen for breakfast before leaving this lovely country.

SAY YES to the ramen!

(找不到適合的色情書刊)

日本的食物模型真的太強了,連假的看起來都很好吃。
