每日英語跟讀 Ep.K199: About World Records - World’s biggest sandcastle constructed in Denmark





 



The world’s tallest sandcastle has been completed in Denmark, towering more than 20 metres high and comprising nearly 5,000 tonnes of sand, according to its designers.





世界最高沙堡已在丹麥落成,據設計師稱,這座沙堡高度超過20公尺,用掉近5000噸沙子。





Standing 21.16 metres in height, the castle is more than 3 metres taller than one built in Germany in 2019, which previously held the title, according to Guinness World Records.





這座打破金氏世界紀錄的城堡高21.16公尺,比起先前紀錄保持者、德國2019年沙堡高出約3公尺多。





A total of 4,860 tonnes of sand make up the intricately decorated structure, which is reminiscent of a pyramid, in the small seaside town of Blokhus.





這座精雕細刻的沙堡位於布洛克豪斯海邊小鎮,總共用掉4860噸沙子,造型讓人聯想到金字塔。





Its Dutch creator, Wilfred Stijger, was assisted by 30 of the world’s best sand sculptors. He said he wanted the castle to represent the power the coronavirus has had over the world since the beginning of the pandemic. On top of the sandcastle is a model of the virus wearing a crown.





來自荷蘭的沙堡設計師威爾弗雷德.史蒂格,在全世界最傑出的30名沙雕師協助下,完成這座沙堡。他表示,他希望這座城堡能夠代表自大流行開始以來冠狀病毒在世界上的影響力。沙堡的頂部是一個戴著皇冠的病毒模型。

World’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge opens in Portugal 高度焦慮:葡萄牙啟用世界最長人行吊橋





Hugo Xavier became one of the first people to cross the world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge when it opened near his tiny hometown of Arouca in northern Portugal.





當世界最長的人行吊橋在葡萄牙北部的阿羅卡小鎮啟用時,當地人雨果‧哈維爾成為最先穿越該橋的其中一人。





"Oh...here we go!," the 42-year-old said anxiously as he gathered enough courage to step onto the see-through metal grid pathway of the 516-metre-long bridge alongside his equally jittery partner and a tour guide.





42歲的哈維爾緊張地說:「噢…我們出發吧!」後,鼓起勇氣踏上這座516公尺長、可透過金屬網格直視橋下的通道,同行的還有一樣緊張的夥伴及一名嚮導。





Hidden between rock-strewn mountains covered with lush greenery and yellow flowers inside the Arouca Geopark, the bridge hangs 175 meters above the fast-flowing River Paiva.





該橋藏身在阿羅卡地質公園內遍布岩石的山峰,以及蒼翠繁茂的植被和黃色花朵之間,懸掛在湍急的派瓦河上175公尺處。





The landscape is calm, but the crossing is not for the faint-hearted. Held up by steel cables and two massive towers on each side, it wobbles a little with every step.




橋上風光平靜悠緩,但不適合膽小的人橫越。該橋由鋼索懸吊起來,橋的兩端各有巨大的塔座,每走一步就些微晃動。Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1465756 ; https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1468971
