A Plan for a Journey4


I Dream of Going to Florence
Tired of lingering around in my familiar culture, I always dream of going on a journey to Italy, especially to Florence, the city from which Renaissance originated. I have such a strong desire to go there that frequently I can sense the pain in my body resulting from the feeling, and it even becomes to me a scarce endurable suffering now and then. On the list of my plan are many reasons, some of which have been brewed in my mind for many years. For the first place, I reckon that the city Florence, often appearing in my dream, is a romantic place. The reason is that one of my most cherished films, A Room with a View sets its background in Florence, presenting a charming love between two young Englishmen. The film is based on a novel, whose writer is the well-known British E.M.Forster whom I admire a lot. Everyone who has ever appreciated the film will never fail to be obsessed with the story and the enchanting scene in Florence. For the second place, Florence contributes the most and the greatest artists, poets, writers, historians, etc. in the world, who produce a large number of amazing art, literary, history works, among which Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Dante's Divine Comedy, Machiavelli's The Prince and many other great works get their birth there, which are of great importance to Western culture, and even to world culture. Also Florence embraces innumerable magnificent and elegant structures which have existed ever since the Medieval Age. Every church, square, and statue, big or small, old or young, share their extraordinary stories with those who are fortunate enough to get a close look at them. Last but not least, Italy lies along the coast of Mediterranean, whose humid air and beautiful sunshine never stop tempting a person like me who have spent almost half of the lifetime in a place with severe coldness and little sunshine. From my point of view, a well-prepared journey will help a traveler to get much more than he expected. So, to carry out my plan for such a marvelous journey, more knowledge about Florence's culture and customs as well as its history has seen a great need for now ever since I watched the film mentioned above, for fear that I would become totally blind the moment I eventually got there. In addition, I am determined to teach myself to read some Italian which might be a great help for me to understand Florence better. Moreover, observing Florence's geography is another must. If permitted, I would like to take more walks around the city and its satellite areas, thus I can experience the sights to which public transportation system cannot extend. Till then, an accurate map will be a necessity. With modern technology, an electronic map, I assume, will be enough for a wandering tour in Florence. I have laid so much expectation on the journey that I should ever be able to appease my desire. My hope is that the glorious day will finally arrive, when, in spite of every obstacle, I yield to my sickness of longing and exert tremendous effort to spread my footsteps around the fantastic land, touch every great work with my eyes, and shower my feelings over everything I will be through there.

I Dream of Going to Florence
Tired of lingering(逗留) around in my familiar culture, I always dream of going on a journey to Italy, especially to Florence, the city from which Renaissance originated(起源). I have such a strong desire to go there that frequently(频繁地) I can sense the pain in my body resulting from the feeling, and it even becomes to me a scarce endurable(难以忍受的) suffering now and then. On the list of my plan are many reasons, some of which have been brewed(酝酿) in my mind for many years. For the first place, I reckon (think) that the city Florence, often appearing in my dream, is a romantic place. The reason is that one of my most cherished films, A Room with a View sets its background in Florence, presenting a charming love between two young Englishmen. The film is based on a novel, whose writer is the well-known British E.M.Forster whom I admire(崇拜) a lot. Everyone who has ever appreciated the film will never fail to be obsessed(着迷) with the story and the enchanting(迷人的) scene in Florence. For the second place, Florence contributes(贡献) the most and the greatest artists, poets, writers, historians, etc. in the world, who produce a large number of amazing art, literary, history works, among which Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Dante's Divine Comedy, Machiavelli's The Prince(君主论) and many other great works get their birth there, which are of great importance to Western culture, and even to world culture. Also Florence embraces( 包 括 ) innumerable( 无 数 的 ) magnificent and elegant( 优 雅 的 ) structures which have existed(存在) ever since the Medieval Age(中世纪). Every church, square, and statue, big or small, old or young, share their extraordinary(非凡的) stories with those who are fortunate enough to get a close look at them. Last but not least, Italy lies along the coast of Mediterranean, whose humid(潮湿的) air and beautiful sunshine never stop tempting(诱惑) a person like me who have spent almost half of the lifetime in a place with severe(严峻的) coldness and little sunshine. From my point of view, a well-prepared journey will help a traveler to get much more than he expected. So, to carry out my plan for such a marvelous(奇妙的) journey, more knowledge about Florence's culture and customs as well as its history has seen a great need for now ever since I watched the film mentioned above, for fear that(以免) I would become totally blind the moment I eventually got there. In addition, I am determined to teach myself to read some Italian which might be a great help for me to understand Florence better. Moreover, observing Florence's geography is another must. If permitted(允许), I would like to take more walks around the city and its satellite areas, thus I can experience the sights to which public transportation system cannot extend. Till then, an accurate map will be a necessity(必要性). With modern technology, an electronic map, I assume (guess), will be enough for a wandering(漫游的) tour in Florence. I have laid so much expectation on the journey that I should ever be able to appease(满足) my desire. My hope is that the glorious(光荣的) day will finally arrive, when, in spite of every obstacle(障 碍), I yield to(屈服于) my sickness of longing(渴望) and exert(运用) tremendous(巨大的) effort(努力) to spread my footsteps around the fantastic(神奇的) land, touch every great work with my eyes, and shower my feelings over everything I will be through there.
