第三天, 我們兩人單獨出遊到Ajaccio(阿雅克肖), 是科西嘉島最大的都市, 也是拿破崙的出生地!
On the third day, we went on a day trip on our own. We left from Porticcio (where his sister lives) to Ajaccio, the first-largest city in Corsica. It is also the birthplace of Napoleon!
這是阿雅克肖的港口~ The port of Ajaccio~
雖然拿破崙很有名, 但我們對大自然比較有興趣, 所以我們並沒有花時間參觀市中心或有關拿破崙的景點, 拍完港口的照片就直接開車前往Pointe de la Parata (Ajaccio)!
Google地圖上標示從阿雅克肖到Pointe de la Parata只需要19分鐘, 但我們開開停停, 邊拍照邊看風景的時間當然不止19分鐘囉~
Despite how famous Napoleon is, we are more interested in nature. Therefore, we didn’t spend time visiting the city or Napoleon’s house. We drove directly to Pointe de la Parata after taking the photos of the port.
The word “pointe” means "cape" in English (correct me if I am wrong).
As you can see on Google map, it only takes 19 minutes to go there from Ajaccio. However, we stopped for photos and photos… we took more than 19 minutes!

抵達Pointe de la Parata~
塔的對岸是另一個島嶼 - Îles Sanguinaires (嗜血島嶼)~
我問外星人為何命名為嗜血島嶼, 但他不知道, 所以我只好上網找 (最討厭看法文文章了). 我找到一篇文章解釋島嶼名稱的由來, 但都只是猜測. 有可能是跟在日落時分, 陽光照射在石頭上的顏色有關; 也有可能是因為島上有一種植物在秋天會變成血紅色的關係. 還有另外兩個猜測...我實在懶得花更多心思翻譯, 請見諒!
Arrived at our destination~
On the opposite side of the tower is an Island called Îles Sanguinaires (Bloody/Bloodthirsty Island). I found an article that explains the name of the island, but they are in French. If you are interested, click HERE for the translation from google.
Îles Sanguinaires(嗜血島嶼)~ Bloody/Bloodthirsty Island~
在海岸邊發現一堆壽命已盡的水母~ 即使死了也別亂碰 因為還是有毒性的!
We found a bunch of dead jellyfish all over the seashore. They are still poisonous even though they are dead!
出發去!! Let's go!!
閃閃發光的海平面~ 大自然景觀處處令我流連忘返, 也令我感受到和提醒我生命中的美好! 活著真好!!
The glittering sea…what a beautiful sight to look at!! I can’t get enough of it! Nature makes me love and appreciates the fact that I am still breathing!
一邊烏雲壟罩, 另一邊藍天白雲, 突然覺得自己好像這世界的旁觀者, 在千變萬化裡我靜止不動~
You can see that one side of the sky was cover with grey clouds while the other side was blue sky. From where I stood, I felt like an outsider of this world, standing still, in an ever-changing world.
To be continued...
