Olympia 會為人所知還是拜Olympic game 之賜, 因為這是被選中的奧運發源地,
在776BC 便開始了所謂的small regional festival,
並把這個Game 獻給天神Zeus, 一開始只准希臘人參加,
後來也准許羅馬人參加因為他們後來統治了希臘.....
在西元426 年時被Theodosius II 禁止, 1896 年又再度舉辦

之前透過Matt 的網站, 查到在此處值得信賴的Taxi Driver,
這位司機很好玩, 除了放上自己的照片還有自傳,
由於我們去Olympia 的這一天剛好是情人節,
所以賞心悅目有個帥哥陪是很重要的

(此圖為網站照片)
因為我們的小帥哥司機本名Pategotis, 他說英文名是:Pete (很好 跟Brad Pete 很像)

這一天下船的時候天氣有點陰陰的, 地上還濕濕的

這一次排除萬難, 帶著老媽展開歐洲古蹟之旅,
雖然聽起來歐洲應該是很華麗的地方,
但是這次很多地方被列為世界遺跡, 再加上不怎麼開化的埃及,
所以到處看到的都是石頭, 神像..... 被老媽這個City Girl唸了很久.....
不過能把她拐出門兩個禮拜不看新聞, 真的已經是天大的奇蹟了!

(圖為 Greece Sunrise)

此行氣溫雖然低, 但是所到之處雨都沒有降下,
連希臘雅典衛城之下都是好藍好藍的天(這才是我心目中的希臘),
比比總比那些熱到不行的旅客, 又多了一番風味!
人家是短袖T-Shirt 遊, 我是厚帽T+ 圍巾遊

這張照片看起來天空是這麼的藍,
天知道這一天我已經被凍到穿著兩件毛衣加上厚帽T,

在這篇文章公佈的同時, 此時我應該在希臘雅典的衛城下.....
自從決心不參加船公司提供的行程後 我開始了網路搜尋計畫.....

簡單希臘單字與片語 (開始咬文嚼字)


下面這個段落是有關雅典 Athens 的部分:

自由活動時間: 8:00-19:00
上下船處: Piraeus
Piraeus Port 地圖

有用的網站:
Matt's 網站: Athens Survival Guide
雅典景點市區地圖
 (from Matt's website)
另一雅典景點市區地圖 (這個比較優)

Here is our itinerary:

Day 1

Civitavecchia/Rome (Italy)

     The first evidence of settlement in the area of Civitavecchia relates to the ancient town of Centocelle, once the port for Ethruria and a rich market centre. Pliny the Younger refers in his writings to Centocelle as the venue of a peace council held by the emperor Trajan.
     Centocelle takes its name from the style of village houses, which resembled hives with small cells, and the tiny bays along the coast that enabled ships to come and go. Due to its sheltered surroundings and easy access to the sea, Trajan built his most extravagant villa in the vicinity, mentioned by Pliny. The basic structure of the port first developed by Trajan still remains.
     When the port of Ostia at the mouth of the River Tiber became insufficient to handle the maritime traffic to Rome, Civitavecchia took its place. The distinctive shape of the port is attributed to the architect Apollodoro who decorated the original structure with engravings and statues. After the fall of the Roman Empire, Civitavecchia maintained its maritime importance and in a few centuries had become the most important port in the Thyrrenian, competing for supremacy with Pisa and attracting the attention of Turkish pirates.
     The port today manages light commercial and passenger traffic to the Thyerrenian islands, while the mediaeval centre of Civitavecchia is still well preserved.

Day 2

Savona (Italy)

     One of the most celebrated former inhabitants of Savona was the navigator Christopher Columbus, who farmed land in the area while chronicling his journeys. 'Columbus's house', a cottage situated in the Savona hills, lay between vegetable crops and fruit trees. It is just one of many residences in Liguria associated with Columbus.
     Several cities as well as Savona claim his birth and residency, such as Genoa and Terrarossa di Moconesi. Savona is the most important city on the west coast of Italy, within reach of the seaside resorts of Alassio, Loano and Varazze.

冬季遊歐洲, 應該不是很多人會做的,
天氣冷不講, 地中海氣候還會下雨哩.....

所以我早早在網上做好了功課, 北臉的外套都好貴,
這一次挑了Columbia 的特價品, 因為大概大家都要冬季大清倉,
沒有人在一月還在買這種外套的, 不過這個真是好價錢
是就算不穿也不心疼的那一種.....
 
第一個這件標榜Authentic Fit: Not too fitted, not to loose.....

上面還有一個標籤寫著: inner beauty found inside....
到底裡面有啥文章哩?

 
講穿了就是暗袋! 裡面有一個專門放Googles, 及一個放 Ipod 的口袋,
當然還有一個是Hidden Security Pocket.
右手這張是袖子的部分, 有層薄薄的可以穿過大拇指禦寒

這一家餐廳其實在這個Restaurant Week 我去了兩次,
不僅服務好, 餐點也棒!
最近在Obama 加持下 意外再度成為焦點
可能是跟Obama 出生在Hawaii 有關....

這家餐廳的風格裝潢跟LA Downtown 完全不同,
在一棟新的Complex Building 的一樓, 而且只開晚上.....
一到晚上室外的火把點著, 試圖營造夏威夷的風情!
 

我們造訪的這一天剛好是 Superbowl, 所以餐廳裡聽到此起彼落的加油聲,
特別是Cardinals 進球在第四節仍領先的時候,

室內的光線比較略暗, 但是不迷濛,
而且每個位置間保有一定的距離, 所以有某種程度的privacy.....

上次自從吃過Akira 的Miso Seabass 後 (兩年半前)
因為價位不便宜所以沒有進一步動手, 這一次趁Dine LA 的活動,
自然要速速訂位!

而且每個麵包送上來是包在布裡是微熱的!

Desserts

Choice 2 - Lavender Creme Brulee
Choice 3 - Timbal Elysee "Lasserre"

這一天有四人同行, 但因為有兩人不能吃甜食(老人家怕血糖過高)
所以點了兩個套餐, 另外單點兩份Miso Seabass (Signature dish of Maison Akira)


這個是餐廳送的前前點, 下面是法國麵包, 上面是魚,
