Accidental Pleasure In Paris

I have never been a good tourist. I thought this trip to Paris; I should do the research in order to check every sightseeing point on the map. On the google page, when you type in “Paris”, it comes out the stereotyped places, however, I wrote every detail down on my special prepared “Paris Note Book”. I had the full hand of confidence when I arrived in Paris. I stood on the land of the city, breathed the smell that mixed with the urine and the smoke. I was too unruffled by emotion to pump my blood circulation. Took my Note Book on the hands, wanted to go to the Metro Station. However, a small street looked very attractive that was beside the station entrance. It seemed like there was a treasure right behind the alley. My mind wove the emotion into a map; the mood turned on the automatic navigation; the feet followed my eyes, and my heart flew happily beside me. No more attractions and crowds, I felt fainted and lost myself. Not losing my way, but feeling so dizzy from the excitement.

我不是個稱職的觀光客,一直都不是。本來想,這趟到巴黎,好歹應該做點功課,才不白白浪費一張機票,還有那難得的機會時光。上網查詢,千篇一律是那必訪景點,我急忙在特別準備的一本巴黎行筆記本上抄寫下來,景點名稱、地址還有怎麼搭地鐵前往的路線。信心滿滿抵達巴黎,一踏上這座城市的土地,吸進那帶有尿騷煙味的空氣,忘情的連呼吸都漏了拍。捧出筆記本,欲前往地鐵站搭車,卻怎料地鐵旁那條小路看起來似乎更加迷人,再轉角過去一點的陋巷缺口似乎有個寶窟在後頭。我的思緒自行編織另一張地圖網,欲探究竟的心情開啟了自動導航,雙腳跟隨雙眼往前邁,一顆心鼓漲鼓漲地在一旁跟著飛。沒有了景點、沒有了人潮,在巴黎探險竟然讓我昏頭轉向,不是迷了路的轉,而是興奮到不能自已的昏。

Each alley, every unexpected shop jumped up to the front of my eyes and waved the hands to say hello. I nodded the head and smiled, in order to catch all messages from the city. Walking forward in big steps, blinking reluctantly, breathing deucedly. I was even too addicted to making photos. Every praise was a shutter; each twittering substituted uploading to the social medias, swallowing the memories together with the saliva incidentally.

每條巷子、不期而遇的店鋪如舞台布景般一個個、一座座往我眼前鑽,大把熱情招著手。我左點頭、右微笑示意,就怕漏了任何這座城市給予的訊息。大步大步往前走,捨不得眨眼、過度換氣呼吸,竟然偶爾沈迷景致中把相機給遠遠拋在腦後。每一次的讚嘆替代快門,每回不可思議的呢喃取代了上傳臉書的招炫,吞嚥口水順便儲存記憶。

It was fun when unexpected encounter happened. Crossing a bridge (I realized afterwards that was Pont Alexandre III), I saw the view that Eiffel Tower was the background. What a sumptuous backdrop.

However, from far, I aimed the Triumphal Arch. Last experience in Paris was too short to stay with it. This time, without any help from google map, I found it. I sat under the Triumphal Arch and looked up to it; then I was sure that I was finally in this city.

不期偶遇才是最為過癮。路過了一座橋(後來看才知道是亞歷山大三世橋 Pont Alexandre III),遠遠地,巴黎鐵塔為背景,太過奢侈的一幕。不過凱旋門老遠就瞄到了,上回四小時巴黎行走得匆忙,與這座城門擦身而過;這回不用地圖、不需地址,城門崁領著我筆直前進。臨門下,就椅而坐,門牆要仰望才能入眼。我終究確認,人是在巴黎了。

Even when I was on the Pont des Arts, I did not realize it in the beginning. Yes, here it is. At the house of Juliet in Italy, touching the right breast to wish a good luck of love; afterwards, lovers have to come to Paris to protect their relationship. My lovers were in Munich at home, although, it did not make sense to lock alone. Sitting on the bridge, I felt blessed when the sunshine coverd my shoulders. Not from the lovely couples but feeling that I was so lucky to share the happiness with them.

就連路過了愛情鎖頭橋,才恍然大悟,啊,是這裡了。在義大利朱麗葉家邊,一座雕像的右乳可以帶來愛情;那麼接著就得到巴黎藝術橋上鞏固愛情,將彼此鎖定套牢永不分開。我的大小愛人在慕尼黑,現今一人也無法獨自上鎖,坐低橋板上,暖烘烘太陽照著肩膀,這幸福感恣意湧上。不為眼前一對對相擁而吻、不分男女老少的眷侶,是我何德何能有這份好運沾染他們的愛與情,也將我心填地滿滿的。

It is too hokey, if I say, everything was unexpected. Honestly, the Louvre and the Lafayette department store were planned. I would like to take a look the glasses Pyramid from Dan Brown’s story; also the dreamy ceiling of the famous shopping mall that full of tourists. This time, I could not help but take some photos of it. In the end, I was sure that I was here with Paris.

如果一切都是不期然,未免太假情虛義;那麼羅浮宮還有拉法葉百貨是我主動投懷送抱。真想看看丹布朗筆下的玻璃金字塔、還有許多觀光遊客購物的天堂卻擁有美幻天花的老佛爺百貨。這回,我情不自禁掏出相機,縱使按下了其一那成千上萬了無新意的到此一遊照,終究確認,我與巴黎同在。
