It’s nearly the end of our trip in the UK. In Day 7 & 8, we chose the Cornwall - a county on England’s rugged southwestern tip as our last stop. It’s actually a peninsula encompassing wild moorland and hundreds of sandy beaches, culminating at the promontory Land’s End. Due to the short of time, we only chose several remarkable spots to stop and visit. Long drive, long journey, something interesting happened, some were actually scary. Let’s get started!
It was a long time since last blog as quite busy in the work at the moment. Considering the time passed since Feb, I’m going to end up this series of travelling blogs as soon as possible. Probably another one or two blogs will be going further. Afterwards, I really want to catch up something which I have learned and researched in my recent work and spare time and shared to you. Life is not just work and travelling, isn’t it?
After 4 days in London, we took the train from Paddington Station (Yes, paddington bear lives there) and went towards Bath.
It has been quite busy rencetly at work so I stop writing this series of articles for few days. However, firstly I wish ya all have a good Easter holiday and enjoy this long weekend (if you live in Ireland)!
The Shard is located very close to London bridge and it is required pre-booked ticket in order to go to the top of the building. To be honest, the entrance of the Shard is quite confused, I still remember we arrived a little bit earlier at that day but was very hard to find the door. However, it’s definitely a must-to-go place with my own experience. We were very luckly that day the weather was extremely beatiful (Well, I heard about they “might” be refund you if the weather is too bad, not sure about that). No more words, here are photos!!!
Back to 2015, when I first visited London, my friend told me there is a very fantastic Studio for filming Harry Potter, not in London but quite close. As for me, I’m a big fan of Harry Potter, but only for books. I only watched the first Harry Potter movie - “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”.
Last April, I travelled to Edinburgh, where J.K Rowling wrote the manuscript. Here is the famous birthplace of Harry Potter:
Actually I went to St. Paul’s Cathedral back to 2015, my first time to visit London. However, I didn’t go into the builiding because of the lacking of the time. I still remember at that time, we finished exploring the Tate Modern Museum, going across the millennium bridge, then had a nice, Itanlian (or French) style food. I think it’s Burger as I didn’t know so many English or French words, so can’t even order the food.
This article is probably my first travelling blog which I wished to write something about travelling for a long time.
To be honest, I don’t have many personal favourite habits except for driving, travelling and watching films. I’m also not a big fan of series as they are sometimes too long to finish, taking me so much time. So far, I only watched two series entirely. One is BBC - Sherlock Holmes, the other is HBO - Game of Thrones (GOT). And GOT probably is the longest series I still insisted to finish as highly recommended by Diarmuid and Brenny.
I still remember it was in 2016, summer time. My first Annual Holiday after starting my career. I aggressively started from Season 1, only spent 2 weeks to catch up until Season 6. Since that time, I become a loyal fan of GOT, as the same feeling to Sherlock Holmes.
In the last blog How to update Hexo and Hexo theme properly, I manage both Hexo blog and Hexo themes as Git Repositories. However, I met a problem when I push everything to remote repo and tried to pull to another PC/Mac.
In the previous blog, I introduced how to update Hexo and Hexo theme -
NexT. However, since Hexo 3.0, it’s recommended to install
hexo-cli, which is command line interface for hexo.
Since last blog - “New Journey Step 1: Update Hexo and Hexo theme”, again it’s been a while to write any new content right here.
Until Dec.2017, I suddenly found my previous domain name dandyxu.com is expired because I forgot to renew and if I decide to renew it, I have to pay Godaddy extra more. (around 100 euro), which I don’t think it makes any sense although .com domain name is very common and popular. After a couple of days’ thinking, I decide to buy this new domain name - dandyxu.me which is suitable for the purpose of this site.
