這裡的學校在第一次期中考結束後,會有一個冬假,

相當於我們台灣的大學的春假,

於是就和朋友一起規劃到紐芬蘭島上最繁華的城市-聖約翰。

 

After finishing first midterm exam, we had a winter break for a week.

It is like spring break in Taiwanese universities.

So I planed to travel to the most prosperous and bustling city-St. John's in Newfoundland.

因為搭飛機的價錢實在是貴得讓人嫑嫑的,

來回加幣就要300元,大約台幣7200元,

還不包含托運行李費用,飛行時間是1小時。

 

The flight ticket fare is too expensive for students.

It costs about CAD$300 for round trip.

And checked baggage fee is not including in flight ticket fare.

However, the duration of the trip is 1 hour.

 

 

有國際駕照的人可以租車,一天加幣30多元,

未滿25歲只能租小客車(4人座),

滿25歲可以租廂型車(6人座),

車程大約7~8小時,

路上車很少,所以不會有塞車問題,

但是要小心高速公路上可能會出現麋鹿或是其他小動物,

再加上這裡天氣變化莫測,一下晴朗一下大風大雪,

而且人生地不熟,所以我們沒有選擇租車。

 

If you have international driver's license, you can rent a car.

People who are under 25 years old are allowed to rent a 4 seat car.

People who are over 25 years old are allowed to rent a 5~9 seat van.

The duration of the trip is 7~8 hours.

Traffic jam wolud never happen in Newfoundland due to few population.

But you must be careful of large animals such as moose.

In addition, the weather is unpredictable.

A bright sunny day can turn stormy in no time.

Eventually, due to unfamiliar places, we didn't rent a car.

窮學生只能選擇搭客運(DRL BUS),

http://drl-lr.com/schedule-and-fares/

要注意的是一天只有一班車,記得提早30分鐘去等車,

不然錯過就要再等24小時了。

 

Uaually, students are poor. So we choose the cheapest way to travel.

We traveled by DRL bus.

Here is the website: http://drl-lr.com/schedule-and-fares/

There is only one bus per day.

Also, sometimes, the schedule will be changed.

Arrive the bus station as much as 30 minutes ahead of the schedule.

Otherwise, you have to wait another 24 hours.

 

 

從 Corner Brook 到 St. John's 一趟,

成人是加幣103元,學生是加幣93元(需有學生證),

車程大約10~11小時,中途會停很多站,

都會有便利商店,有些還有餐廳,

只有2~3站會停大約20~30分鐘給大家吃個飯,

其餘的站只會停留5~10分鐘上廁所,

或是讓人需要下車的人下車後就開走。

 

The bus fare from Corner Brook to St. John's is CAD$103 for adult, CAD$93 for student.

(Need student identity card)

The duration of the trip is 10~11 hours.

There are many stops on the way to St. John's.

The driver will stop for 20~30 mins about 2~3 times for people to eat meals.

Or stop for 5~10 mins for people to go to the restroom.

客運上都會有車掌小姐,有任何問題都可以問她,

等大家都坐在位置上,發車之後,車掌小姐才會一個一個去收車費。

 

There is a bus conductor on the bus.

She will collect fees after the bus departs the station.

 

 

一路上也都會放幾部影片給大家觀看,

如果對電影沒興趣的人,

建議可以看書或是使用電子產品,

我有看到座椅附近有插座,

只是我有帶行動電源,所以沒有使用。

 

You can watch movies on the bus.

If you are not interested in movies, you can read books or ues iphone or ipad.

I saw socket near by seat.

But I didn't use it.

So I'm not sure if the socket works.

 

 

車上沒有窗簾,所以在車上可以戴帽子遮陽。

There is no curtain on the bus.

So you can wear something to shade your body from the sun.

我出發時是早上11:00,

到了St. John's 之後,已經晚上10:30了。

我是用Airbnb訂民宿,不然訂hotel都比較貴,

房東回覆很快,大約1小時左右就會回覆訊息,

整個客廳、廚房、浴室、房間都很乾淨,

可以住2~4人,但是2人有房間雙人床,另外2人就要睡客廳的沙發床。

另外還有免費的洗衣機、烘乾機。

個人用品需要自備,像是洗澡用的、保養品。

唯一提供的只有冰箱、餐具、浴巾、毛巾、洗衣精、洗碗精、大電視。

 

 

 

 

這間的民宿位置還算不錯,

距離百貨公司、Sobeys超市坐計程車大約5分鐘,

走路到公車站牌大約10分鐘。

我搭公車時要下車,除了要按鈴之外,連門還要自己開呢!

因為他的門和台灣公車的自動門看起來一樣,

所以我們都愣在那裡不知道要從哪裡打開。

 

When we were waiting for the door open to get off the bus, the bus driver told us that we should open the door by ourselves...

The bus door in Newfoundland looks the same as the bus door in Taiwan.

We just stood in front of the door like fools without opening.

他們的房子建築都非常漂亮,

大部分都是屬於暖色系的,

在冰天雪地裡增添了溫暖。

Their house buildings are very beautiful.

Most of them belong to warm color.
