Things to do in UK before you Die

在英国你不得不做的事(虽然看完文章后就发现这种风格很不喜、但是还是翻译看看==、)


1. VISIT LONDON

1.参观伦敦
I am firmly of the belief that everyone, no matter where you live, should visit their country’s capital. The fact that London is one of the greatest cities in the world makes it very easy to make seeing it one of the things to do in the UK before you die. Tour the amazing historical sights, enjoy the view from either the London Eye or the Shard, visit the museums, enjoy Theatreland or a spot of shopping, dine in a 3-Michelin Star restaurant and dance the night away in one of the world class nightclubs with top DJs.
我坚定地认为,每个人,不论居于何处,都应该好好看看他们国家的首都。伦敦是世界上最美妙的城市之一,光凭这一条,参观伦敦就该成为你在英国不得不做的事情之一。看看那些令人惊异的历史景点,享受从伦敦眼或着夏德塔上眺望所见的风景,欣赏伦敦的剧院区或者买点小东西?,在米其林三星餐馆享用晚餐,在世界级的夜店和顶级DJ跳一整晚的舞。


2. HAVE A CREAM TEA IN DEVON

在德文郡享受下午茶
You will find a traditional cream tea in many places, particularly in the southern and western counties of England, but their spiritual home is in Devon. Why? Because Devon is where they make the best clotted cream, and real cream teas serve thisand not just whipped up double cream.
你可以在很多地方发现传统的下午茶,特别是在英格兰南部和西部。不过他们的精神家园(这样直译感觉不好呢)在德文郡。为什么?因为德文郡的浓缩稀奶油是最棒的, 纯正的下午茶应使用这种奶油,而不能仅仅用搅拌过的厚奶油应付。


3. VISIT BLENHEIM PALACE

参观布莱尼姆宫

As well as being the ancestral home of the Dukes of Marlborough, a World Heritage Site and one of the best examples of a country house in England, Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire is the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. In the millennium poll, Churchill was voted the “Greatest Ever Briton,” so a kind of pilgrimage to his home is one of the most patriotic things to do in the UK before you die. Even without the Churchill connection, the house and gardens are a grand day out.
牛津郡的布莱尼姆宫是温斯顿·丘吉尔爵士的出生地,除此之外,它还有马尔伯勒公爵的府邸、世界遗产、英国园林的最佳典范之称。在千禧年调查中,丘吉尔被评选为“英国伟人”,所以这样一场参观伟人宅邸的朝圣之行也是在英国不得不做的爱国行为之一。就算没有与丘吉尔沾光,这座宅院也是个好去处

 


4. HUNT THE LOCH NESS MONSTER

找尼斯湖水怪



This is absolutely one of the things to do in the UK before you die. It may be a myth, but who knows? And how bad will you feel if they discover Nessie on the day you are on your death bed and you have to lie there knowing you could have been the one to find her if only you had made that trip to Loch Ness? Anyway, Loch Ness is beautiful, so it wouldn’t be a wasted trip.
这绝对是一件你在英国不得不做的事情。这也许只是个传说,但是谁知道呢?如果有一天有人发现了尼斯湖水怪,而那时你已在躺在床上奄奄一息,想到要是自己去过尼斯湖的话,自己有可能就成为发现者了,那时你的感觉是多么糟糕啊!不管怎样,尼斯湖风景很美,所以这绝不是一场徒劳之行。
