一周半前, 我們去科西嘉島拜訪外星姊一家, 順便也度了短暫的小蜜月(去年結婚到現在, 這是第一次兩人一起單獨出遊).
科西嘉島(Corse)是個位於法國東南部及鄰近義大利的島嶼, 也是法國人度假的旅遊勝地. 三年前外星姊夫因工作關係被派到那, 我們一直說要去拜訪但都不了了之, 外星家庭成員分別都去了好幾次... 終於, 我們在這個月的第二個禮拜三早上坐飛機出發了
A week and a half ago, we went to visit alien’s sister who lives in Corsica (Click HERE to know more about Corsica), and we had a short honeymoon while we were there as well (It was our first trip alone since our wedding last year).
Alien’s brother-in-law got a job offer in Corsica three years ago, and they have been living there ever since. We talked about going to visit for years, but never had enough time and money to do so. Other family members already went visit for several times… Finally, we set out on the 8th for a week’s trip to the beautiful island!

我們總共待了一個星期. 到達的第一天, 我整個人昏昏沉沉, 因為隔夜只睡了四個小時. 我一心一意只想倒在床上補眠, 但那天剛好是外星姪女的生日派對...所以, 我只好含淚偷偷跟周公說: "必須要等到晚上才能相見了~"
外星姊在外面租了個室內的遊樂場, 壽星也邀請了同學們來一起慶祝. 原本我以為情況會很恐怖, 因為只要想到一堆小孩尖叫跌撞的畫面就令我退卻, 不過事實上沒我想像的可怕或疲累, 因為小孩們都專心玩樂, 就像放羊吃草一樣, 大人們在旁邊看著, 邊聊天邊提醒他們注意安全就好!
第二天也沒做什麼, 當天下午外星姊一家人和我們開車去一個離家算近的海灘. 會去那海灘的人大部分都是有小孩的家庭, 因為水很淺, 必須要在海裡走一段距離海水才會愈來愈深, 對小朋友來說是個非常理想的玩水地點!
On the first day, I had trouble to stay awake because I had only four hours of sleep the night before. I wanted to nap so badly, but there was a birthday party for Alien’s niece…
Alien’s sister rented an indoor playground, and the birthday girl invited her classmates to come and celebrate together. I was a bit scared at first, just to think a bunch of kids running around and screaming... But it turned out that it wasn’t as tiring or frightening as I thought it would be. It was bearable.
The kids were concentrating on their playing and running, the adults were watching and talking at the same time. It was like herding the sheep, but noisier!
We didn’t do much on the second day. All of us went to a beach that wasn’t too far from the house. There were mostly families there. The water was very shallow and you need to walk for quite a while to get to the deep-water area. I think that beach is an ideal place for kids to swim!
以下是另外一個海灘~ 本來想欣賞日落, 但太陽害羞地躲了起來, 那天傍晚的天空主角則是美麗動人的雲霞~
Here is another beach. We wanted to watch the sunset, but the sun was too shy to show its beauty. The charming and gorgeous clouds were the stars of the sky that evening!
The sky's unending changes amazed me completely!!
To be continued...
