Hi my Steemit friends!! I'm Susan! Hope you're doing great! Last time I shared my travel experience in King's Cross. You can see how amazing London is!! This time, I'd like to share my experience in Greenwich. Thank you for your support❤️

親愛的Steemit朋友們大家好!我是Susan哦! 很久沒見啦!上次我跟大家分享了我在國王十字的美好時光。相信大家都感受到倫敦的魅力了!今天,我想跟大家分享的是我在格林尼治的經歷。感謝大家的支持哦❤️


1. Royal Observatory Greenwich 格林尼治皇家天文台

20630118_10207669182805843_314541521_o (1).jpg

Royal Observatory Greenwich is the historic home of Greenwich Mean Time, the Prime Meridian of the World, and most importantly, British astronomy. If you like astronomy, you should definitely pay a visit to this Observatory!

格林尼治皇家天文台以格林尼治標準時間本初子午線英國天文學聞名於世。如果你是天文愛好者的話,你一定要來這裏朝聖哦!


INTERESTING FACT: In October 1884, the Greenwich Meridian was selected to be the common ZERO OF LONGITUDE and standard of time reckoning throughout the world in the International Meridian Conference held in the U.S.. The modern prime meridian, which is the prime meridian that currently has the widest use, is placed very close to this meridian.
趣味小知識:在1884年10月,「國際子午線會議」結束後,格林尼治的本初子午線被選為公認的 0度經線 以及計算世界時間的標準。現時最為廣泛使用的本初子午線與這條線只有非常短的距離。


While Hong Kong is regarded as a city where 'East meets West', the Royal Observatory is LITERALLY where East and West meet! Look! 0° 00′00.00″ West and 0° 00′00.00″ East!!!

我們都知道,香港因其"東西碰撞"的文化而聞名; 但在格林尼治皇家天文台,你才能見識到什麼叫真真正正的東西交會!!你看,是 0° 00′ 00.00″ 西和 0° 00′ 00.00″東!!!

20641262_10207672761055297_392165420_o.jpg

It is where the Prime Meridian is located!! So, half my body is in the WESTERN hemisphere and the other half in the EASTERN hemisphere!! ;pp

這就是本初子午線!所以,我的一般身體在東半球,另一半在西半球哦!;pp

20641926_10207673086663437_1153832290_o.jpg

20676753_10207673087023446_969199090_o.jpg

And Hong Kong is located at 114° 15′ E :):)

香港位於114° 15′ E :):)

20642031_10207672772015571_1739314206_o.jpg

My body extends from Hong Kong to Singapore!!! LOLLL!!

我的身體橫跨了香港與新加坡!!LOLL!!

20668173_10207672772775590_586190179_n.jpg

And let's see what's more......This is the Great Equatorial Telescope in an ONION DOME!!! Interesting, isn't it ;pp This colossal telescope is one of the largest in the world ;)🔭

讓我們看看還有什麼......這是在 洋蔥拱頂 中的巨型赤道望遠鏡!!難道不是十分有趣嗎?;pp 它是全世界最大的望遠鏡之一;) 🔭

L8627-018.jpg

The telescope is round at each end but rectangular in the middle. Do you know why? It's because its mount was built for a much smaller telescope, so the middle part of the tube had to be tapered in order to fit!! Smart people can always find a way-out for the unexpected ;pp

這個望遠鏡的兩頭是圓形,但中間卻是方形的。大家可知箇中原因?那是因為,它的架子原本是為體型遠比它小的望遠鏡而設的,所以,中間部分必須要做成這樣去配合這個架子!聰明人總是會想到應付危機的辦法;pp

In 1967, people started to use atoms instead of stars to tell time. This atomic clock represents this historical change because it was used by the National Physical Laboratory which invented the WORLD'S FIRST atomic clock. It is when Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) appeared :):)

在1967年,人們用觀星來計算時間,而非原子。這個原子鐘代表了這個歷史性的改變,因為它曾經被英國國家物理實驗室使用;而這個機構發明了 世界第一個 原子鐘。他們造就了「世界協調時間」(UTC) 的誕生:):)

20643797_10207679108893989_1804573326_n.jpg

Sorry, this one looks better...;pp

不好意思,這張好些......;pp

And this is a HUGE atomic clock!!! Imagine a clock like this in your house...!!!

這是一個巨大的原子鐘哦!!想像一下你家有這樣一個鐘......!!

20662714_10207680119679258_937703731_o.jpg

And this is the amazingly-designed Octagon Room. It's designed by Sir Christopher Wren, one of the most famous English architects in history.

這時一個奇妙的八角房。它是英國史上其中一個最出名的建築師Sir Christopher Wren克里斯多佛·雷恩 設計的。

20677096_10207680119919264_1641498980_o.jpg

And the GPS Receivers...Heyy!!! What's iPhone doing here in a museum? So...do they mean iPhone 4 has become an ANTIQUE?!! OK, technology goes much farther than we could imagine ;pp

還有GPS系統......嘿!!iPhone在這裏幹什麼?難道他們想帶出的信息是......iPhone 4 已經成為古董了?!好吧,科技日新月異,遠比我們想像得要快得多呢;pp

20707162_10207680119359250_1295187657_o.jpg

Just come and explore the Observatory!! You'll see more interesting things!! And, situated in the Greenwich Park, the view from the Royal Observatory was just breathtaking!!! :)

快來探索這個奇妙的天文台吧!你還會觀賞到更多有趣的事物哦!由於它位於格林尼治公園內,從此遠眺,風景美不勝收!!:)

2. Cutty Sark 卡蒂薩克號

20706079_10207684253222594_1737742046_o.jpg

Cutty Sark was originally designed to carry tea from China to England. Built in 1869, it was the world’s ONLY SURVIVING tea clipper, and the FASTEST at that time. Now, visitors are allowed to climb up and take some nice photos with it!!

卡蒂薩克號 原本是為把茶葉從中國運到英國而建造的。它建於1869年,是世界上唯一一艘保留下來的專運茶葉的帆船,並且是當時航行速度最快的帆船。開放參觀之後,我們可以上船一飽它的風采啦!

20706996_10207684252342572_1394320856_o.jpg

And you can find some nice souvenirs at the shop nearby:

你還可以在紀念品店找到精美的小禮品:

3. Old Royal Naval College 舊皇家海軍軍校

20707255_10207684252142567_25581870_o.jpg

Having more than 500 years of history, the site has been used as Greenwich Palace, the Royal Naval Hospital of Seamen and then the Royal Naval College. It's designed by Sir Christopher Wren (again!) and it's one of the best architectures in Europe.

經歷了500年的風霜,此地曾被用為格林尼治皇宮皇家水手醫院以及皇家海軍軍校。這是Sir Christopher Wren克里斯多佛·雷恩 設計的(又是他哦),被譽為歐洲最美的建築之一。

20707011_10207684252742582_471465116_o.jpg

20727258_10207684252582578_2023424303_o.jpg

I strongly recommend you joining the Painted Hall Ceiling Tour🎨 to see the masterpiece of Sir James Thornhill. It took him about 20 years to paint in the early 1700s!!!

我強烈建議大家參加Painted Hall Ceiling Tour 彩繪禮堂天花遊🎨, 親眼見證Sir James Thornhill用了20年,在1700年代完成的精采絕倫的大作!!

4. Greenwich Market 格林尼治集市

20676962_10207684252982588_1897764634_o.jpg

You can find more than 100 crafts, arts and stalls here!! And if you are a foodie, it's definitely a place you'll like!! It's similar to Camden Town, and both places are worth visiting:):)

大家可以在這裏找到超過100種手工藝、藝術品和攤位哦!如果你自認是個吃貨的話,那麼你就來對地方了!它與康登鎮有些相似,兩個都是非常值得去的地方哦:):)

20677178_10207684251942562_1017777097_o.jpg

Let's see how it's made...Simple but delicious!!

讓我們看看這是怎麼做出來的......簡單卻讓人垂延三尺!

太棒啦!!

20707254_10207684252262570_576625831_o.jpg

Look what I find! A Hong Kong 1901 one cent!!! What are you waiting for? Come and start your treasure hunt now!!! ;pp

快看我找到了什麼!香港1901年的一毛錢!你還在等什麼?快動身前來尋寶吧!!;pp

5. Emirates Air Line cable car 阿聯酋航空纜車

20707150_10207684253742607_1079967592_o.jpg

Needless to say, the ride is a nice way to enjoy the incredible views of London. We took the cable car from the Greenwich Peninsula to the Royal Dock and finished our adventure today. Along the journey, you could know more about the cable car and London by listening to the recording broadcasted :):) And, we can see people doing wakeboarding!!!!

可想而知,坐纜車是俯瞰倫敦美景的好方式。我們從格林尼治半島坐到皇家碼頭,結束了一天的行程。在旅途中,你可以聽到車中的廣播,了解更多關於纜車及倫敦的故事:):) 我們還看見有人在滑水呢!

20707308_10207684253862610_1002614407_o.jpg

Let's see how it feels (my friend was so scared):

讓我們來看看坐在上面是怎麼樣的感覺(我朋友有恐高還硬坐):


Of course, there're still a lot to explore in Greenwich. And for reference:

當然,格林尼治還有許多值得遊覽的地方哦。下面的作為參考:

Hahaha that's what I did!! It was really exciting to move between western and eastern hemisphere ;pp!

You must listen to the nursery rhyme "The London Bridge fell".

Haha I've heard that !!

Thank you for sharing your amazing trip with us. The pictures are awesome and the narration is clear , we all learned something. BTW you look really pretty in the pictures :) Upvoted and resteemed :)

I agree with this article this is the great story and also nice post

Thanks :)

WoW @susanlo ! It seems you had the adventure of a lifetime! I never imagined all the cool things there are to do and see in London. Great story and photos to go with. I think that meridian divider you were sitting on double as a trak for the electric trolley - LQQK out!!

Thank @lanceman for always supporting me!! :):) haha you can find many incredible things in London!! ;p omg it may really be a track!! Gonna look out LOLLL! 😏

Absolutely great post!

Thanks soo much @kenan1989 :)

VERY GOOD POST!
SUPER FULL !!
It would be good if you gave us an idea of ​​the amount of money you need to have, to make that trip!
BTW: BEAUTIFUL PICTURES!!
Greetings from Venezuela!

Thanks VERYYY much @hada!!! I'm so glad that you like it!!! Haha do you mean how much it would cost if you're in London? Ummm let me see. If you're a student, it costs you £7.5 for the observatory. And for Cutty Sark, it's free if you don't go ONTO it :) But the food in Greenwich market was kinda expensive. For the snack I showed in GIF, it cost £4 ;p And for the cable car, it costs around £3.5! It's better to checkout their website XD For transportation, it depends on which station you come from:) Actually most of the spots are FREE!! So I think it's definitely worth visiting!!
Hope it helps! Cheers:)

Thank you for answering my question!
I find excellent that there is an opportunity to visit places like these, for a "low cost".
In my country, that "small amount" is much more than a minimum salary!
£15 = 330.000BS
So you're very lucky!
Enjoy your little adventures a lot, and keep sharing them with us!♡♡

You're very welcome!!
Nawww I didn't say the amount is "small" coz I also think the living cost in London is SUPER high! Definitely higher than HK... TVT
Yup and I'm lucky :')
haha thanks again! I'll keep up and share more in the future!:)

oh, good!

謝謝O哥;pp

Wow i used to live in london and worked in greenwich delivering newspapers.
i used to drop off to a shop right next to the cutty sark and miss seeing it everyday.
so thanks for this post really has reminded me of those good days.
seems like you having an excellent trip.
i also driven around the millenium dome concourse which now is the o2 as there was shop there also. soon it will be getting on for 20 years since it was built.
Going to follow you as i wanna see where you go next and see more great photo's

Oh really!! Then you must miss it a LOT!!! It's really beautiful and I felt relaxed when I was there :)
you're very welcome:) It's my pleasure to share my happiness with you :) Now, I miss London too and I could consider those days as 'good old days' like you do :')
When I was there around a year ago, the O2 seemed to be still under construction(?) haha! I was not sure about what it was because it looked just strange LOLLL!
I've followed you too :) Thanks sooo much for replying me and reminding me of the days :) Haha I'll share more in the future! Cheers! >V<

Yes it was made for the 2000 end of year celebrations and did house some exhibits. then after they just didn't know what to do with it... was going to be many things but ended up a concert venue. never any planning in the uk for after. thx for following me as well. my family still lives in london.. camden another fab trendy place and i often down visiting so get best of both worlds.

Haha! People usually don't know what to do with a venue after the event it is made for has ended LOL!
Wowww Camden is a nice place! I've been there once and I fell in love with it immediately!! It's great to enjoy your life in both cities :)
Cheers!

I guess it is nice to travel and i have not done so for a good few years now.. but i do like going to and visting places that tourists don't generally go as well. off the beaten path.so to speak..as you do findout about the cultures and people and ways more. Certain places are geared towards tourism and that's not really what i look for...camden can be a bit like that.. it's great but as it has grown in popularity. The area has changed alot. better for the tourists than the locals. but you could say this about anywhere in the world. mass tourism has a huge effect on cities and a lot seem to be fed up... I love tourists and have met many from different nations and been one myself. I guess it's just the scale and now i live in a town. The whole of the center of london is just geared towards tourists. So are other cities around the world. saddens me abit.

Very tasty and delicious food pictures. Like it! Thank you so much for sharing with us. We follow you on your trip. Greetings Salima & Timo

Thanks very much :) cheers!

Hey,Nice post.
Gave you a follow

Hey @hussainasghar!! Thanks so much for supporting me! :)

Very nice observatory and interesting to see an atomic clock!
