我喜歡設計，我也喜歡旅行，去了趟澳洲，第一次當背包客，所有的事項要自己來準備跟規劃，第一次認識外國朋友，深刻體驗到不同的文化交流，第一次自己一個人自助旅行，體驗一個人旅行的樂趣。很多時候有了第一次才知道外面的世界多麼有趣、多麼寬廣，有太多好玩的事情值得我們去發掘，現在想要保有這樣的熱情繼續做自己喜歡的事情，透過插畫設計與旅行經驗相結合，希望大家會喜歡。 特別感謝在這趟旅途中幫助的朋友雪莉、Glume、Doris、Tze Huay及其家人們。
I like to design and travel. I went to Australia last year. When I was a backpacker, all of things had to prepare and plan by myself, and I met foreign friends, experienced to different cultural profoundly, and I went to travel by myself, experience the fun of a person’s travel. Sometimes when we have the first experience, we will know how the outside world is so interesting and wide. There are many interesting things that are worthy to be discovered, so I want to keep this enthusiasm to do the things I like. I will combine illustration and travel experiences. Finally, I hope you will like this. Special thanks to my friend Shirley, Glume, Doris, Tze Huay, and her family.

墨爾本有一輛免費的古老觀光電車“ City Circle Tram ”，電車號碼是35號。這台電車保留了早期電車的古老木頭座位，酒紅色的外型散發出陣陣的古早味，是墨爾本不可或缺的主角之一。電車繞著市區的街道跑，有順時針方向，也有逆時針方向走，幾乎市中心的重要景點都會經過，載滿了旅人在墨爾本的回憶。
There is a free ancient tram which is called “City Circle Tram” in Melbourne. The tram number is 35. This tram retains the old wooden seats and wine red appearance bursts retro flavor. That is one of the indispensable leading role in Melbourne. The tram run around the city streets. There is clockwise direction or counterclockwise direction. It almost go through important sightseeing in downtown, loaded with memories of travelers in Melbourne.
弗林德斯車站 Flinders Street Station
Flinders Street Station is the downtown of Melbourne. Bronze dome and the whole yellow stone building let this historic train station more dazzling. It’s not only being the place where meets friends and relatives, but also the venue of street artists. There are many art and music gathering place. After nightfall, when dim lights flash outside the building, showing another spectacular, ornate, and classical style of Victorian building, experiencing different from day views.
塗鴉街 Grafitti Street
St. Paul Cathedral’s near alley was a graffiti street. I liked graffiti very much. I originally planned to find some graffiti spots in Melbourne and never expect found it so fast. They were different from Taiwanese graffiti. I’m really an eye-opener. Shirley and me were crazy in taking pictures for a long time
菲利浦島 Phillip Island
People could see little penguins on the beach back to shore in Phillip Island. We luckily saw little penguins trying to back to shore. They hard to moved their body forward. It’s really cute! Little penguin is very faithful. When they came ashore, they would be waiting for their lover. If its lover don’t come in this place, it would have been waiting the same place. Hope them to meet their lovers.
庫克船長小屋 Captain Cook`s Cottage
Everything is so fresh in Australia. I didn’t want to miss watching every corner. We planned to see St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Captain Cook’s cottage, but we had no sense of direction, so we could’t find Captain Cook’s cottage. Unexpectedly, we came to Fitzroy garden where had bright and open environment littered with yellow maple leaves, as if we came to Canada. It was very beautiful. Although we didn’t find Captain Cook’s cottage, but I felt better than scheduled.
雪梨歌劇院 Sydney Opera
It was my first time visiting the sights of Sydney. I was afraid that someone would robbed me, so I raised my vigilance. I relied on the google map of my mobile to come to Hyde Park quickly. The opposite site of Hyde Park is St. Mary’s Cathedral. It was my first time to see the foreign cathedral, so I was very exciting. I tried to photograph the cathedral, but I only could photograph a part of it, so I asked for passers help me. There was a Chinese girl photographing the cathedral, I asked her for help. She said that we could visit the city together. She’s Le-Jia, came from Shanghai and lived in her uncle’s house in Sydney countryside. Two person could take care each other. We told about the different characteristic of Shanghai & Taiwan, and we took pictures for each other. We went from Sydney Opera along Circular Quay and Sydney Harbour Bridge, listened to the cello duo buskers, many Australians sat on the grass to eat lunch, made me feeling the simple happiness.
藍山 Blue Mountains
Blue Mountains National Park has a poignant story and magnificent landscape, but the most special things should be their convenient sightseeing transportation. There are three special lifts (Railway, Cableway, Skyway) can take different angles to watch the Blue Mountains. It’s very appealing to me. I took train in the morning and then take a bus to see the Three Sisters. Then I walked to Scenic World, I decided to take Railway that is the most exciting transportation!! Many people said that Railway was very tilted, iclined 90 degrees, its speed was very fast. Railway began to move down, suddenly rushed to the bottom. It’s not scary. Then I got off Railway to the next place. A person walked in the forest, away from the city felt very comfortable. Cableway was like a larger version cable car, I could browse to the Blue Mountains between the valley and the other valley. It’s very magnificent.
邦迪海灘 Bondi Beach
Although I did a lot of homework about Sydney, but the plan always kept changing. I was confused about the location of the place, My British roommate suddenly asked me “Where will you go tomorrow ?” But my English was very poor. I didn’t know how to pronounce that, so I took a guide map to explain where I wanted to go. They said they would go to Bondi Beach tomorrow. They invited me to go together. The next day, we took a train and a bus to Bondi beach. Blue sky and white sand. Many foreigners did sunbathing on the beach. Louise, Nat, and Ria sat on the beach mats, I didn’t bring beach mat, so I sat on the beach. They read and chatted naturally, but my English was not well, so I went around the beach to enjoy the beauty of the place, and feel the warm sun. Actually, I didn’t plan to go to beach at first. A man went to the beach seemed a bit boring, but thanks to them let me to experience the beautiful scenery.
鳥籠街 ANGEL PLACE
In Sydney downtown, there is a Private attractions. There is countless birds cage and giving off a sweet sound on the top of the alley. It is known as “forgotten song”, commonly known as birdcage street, which is a very special and interesting installation art in Sydney. Metaphor mocking modern concrete jungle replacing the original bird habitat, leaving one empty birdcage and let people gradually forgotten song.
費爾德野生動物園 Featherdale Wildlife Park
In Featherdale wildlife park, I saw many unique zoo in Australia, such as kangaroos, koalas, penguins, wombats, etc. The most interesting thing was that I could contact with the animals closely. when I saw wallabies for the first time, I still a little scared, because their figure were a little big. Fortunately they were very mild and their action were very slow, so I could touch them heartily. This was so strange! And then I saw wombats whose nose like a pig, its eyes was very sincere, so I like it immediately.
