Time for Green Island

When traveling, the most special moments, are those new sensual experiences.
The feeling of freedom.The taste of the open sea.The spirit of prayer.Welcome to Taiwan, I am Poyu Lin.
All these experiences ,await you on Green Island!Thanks to the brilliant sea life in its surrounding waters, Green Island has become a world-famous diving destination. But in earlier days, Green Island was separated from the world. Its former identity as a prison island, has given it a special culture and spirit.Today’s trip is really special. First stop, a prison tour!
Green Island Human Rights Culture Park, is a place where tourists can experience, the arc of Taiwan’s human rights history firsthand. The park itself was established, to mark the two prisons that were built here.The first was for ideological reeducation, and was called the “New Life Correction Center.”
This was what a cell at the correction center, looked like in those days. These wax figures representing political prisoners, are enjoying a brief moment of free time before bed.Some are reading, playing chess, and even practicing the violin!
At the other side of the “New Life Correction Center”, is “Oasis Villa”. It was designed like a traditional prison, with cell blocks laid out in a cross shape.My imagination runs wild walking through the cells,and looking at the reconstructed visiting area, with its separating windows covered in scratches.
I just want to tell you, Taiwan is actually really fun. Make sure you come sometime!
Ok, I will.In addition to the site’s history, at the outer wall you can also get a feel, for the power of mother nature.Seeing these views, reminds me how precious freedom really is.Admiring views of a winding coastline ,and all kinds of cool rocks, I've arrived at another Green Island cultural destination - Guanyin Cave.Guanyin Cave is a natural stalactite cave, that was named for one of its meter-high, stalactite resembling the Buddhist goddess of mercy. Thanks to all the tales surrounding it, the cave has become a spiritual home, for the residents of Green Island.Aside from history, cuisine is also a part of the local culture. I hear that seaweed ,can be added to any food on Green Island.Seaweed soup.Shachima.Scrambled eggs and seaweed ice.
Fantastic,taste like the ocean!Do you want to have an unforgettable island trip of your own? Then come to Green Island! I am Poyu Lin, enjoy your time in Taiwan! Ciao~

 

台東 綠島人文輕旅行

旅行時,最迷人的地方,是每次都能有新的五感體驗~感受自由的體驗、
品嚐大海的體驗、虔誠祈福的體驗,歡迎來到台灣,我是林柏妤。這一切令人難忘的體驗,盡在綠島!
因擁有著豐富的海洋生態,綠島已是全球著名的潛水勝地,然而早期,綠島與世隔絕,昔日獨有的監獄文化,讓這小島增添一分神秘色彩!今天旅行很特別,第一站,逛監獄!綠島人權紀念公園,是一處讓旅人體驗,台灣追求人權發展史的地方。園區的創立,源自於此地曾有的兩座監獄。
第一處就是進行思想改造的,「新生訓導處」,這是新生訓導處,當年的押房,蠟像重現了昔日政治受難者,在就寢前短暫的自由時刻。有人看書、下棋,甚至有拉小提琴的情景。
新生訓導處另一側的,綠洲山莊,是屬於典型監獄格局,囚室呈十字交叉狀
走過一間間牢房,或是看著隔窗的會客場景,每一處都讓我有著無限的想像
要告訴大家,台灣真的好好玩,多來台灣旅遊~好,我會的。
除了感受歷史,園區的外圍還能感受大自然的力量。看到這些美景,讓我深深覺得自由真好!一路欣賞著多變的海岸景觀,及奇岩怪石,我的旅行腳步來到了,綠島另一個人文景點,觀音洞。
觀音洞是一處天然的鐘乳石洞,因矗立著一座約一公尺高,形似觀世音菩薩的鐘乳石,加上當地傳說的神話色彩,如今已是綠島居民的,精神寄託之處
在地人文除了歷史外,美食當然也是其中的一環,此外聽說海草,已在綠島變化出各式美食。
海草湯、海草沙琪瑪、海草炒蛋、還有海草冰~口感好特別,有大海的味道!你也想來趟難忘的小島之旅嗎?來綠島就對了!我是林柏妤,享受在台灣的時光,我們下次見。
