波登湖又名康士坦斯湖(Lake Constance),位於德國、瑞士和奧地利的交界,恰好連結了三個說德語的國家。它是德語區內最大的湖泊,面積可以塞下六十六個日月潭,湖水的波動與大海的潮律有幾分相仿,對深居內陸的南德人來說,他們對海的想像便由此開始醞釀。



我下榻於Kressbronn的一個小旅館,距離湖濱只有五分鐘腳程。湖畔有一個小碼頭,夏季時有開往奧地利Bregenz的渡船。碼頭上有五根旗桿,依序懸掛著歐盟、德國、奧地利、瑞士和當地的旗幟。每天早上用餐前,我都會先散歩到湖邊,有時安靜地沉澱精神,有時頑皮地戲逐水鳥。一湖之隔,對岸瑞士小鎮的紅色屋頂彷彿阿爾卑斯山的小裝飾品;我彎身靠近湖濱,碎石子鋪滿湖底,粒粒清晰可辨。偶見幾根崎零的漂流木,我倏地納悶它們的水磨痕跡間蘊藏了多少波登湖的秘密?

我在德國的第一個語文老師Frau Kletzing說她的泳技是在波登湖學的,我當初半信半疑,直到有天瞧見下水的泳客,才頓覺她所言不虛。湖水看似冰涼,其實微溫,明年我若再出差來此,或許會記得帶條泳褲也不一定。

  • 這些湖邊的漂流木看來真是乾淨,
    同樣的漂流木,在台灣的野溪旁,
    可能不免要夾雜一點垃圾吧,唉~~
    下回會記得把這個地方列入行程。

    工作、生活都還好嗎?
    倒真有好久沒讀到你的新文章、
    沒看到新照片了(包括你之前新開的那個英文部落格)
    眼看著十月就要過完,
    可見入秋之後所有人都變忙了,呵呵~~

    多保重,或者,我應該來學古詩:
    上言天涼好個秋,下言加餐飯。

  • I went to Bodensee once, and the town I went to is called
    Lindau while having friend visit in Memmingen (it's not famous
    at all and just like most of towns in Germany). I remember
    that was winter, and we just went skiing in Austria (I can't ski
    but my friend and his friends do.) We stood at the wharf, and
    my friend pointed out some places for me. It was Sunday
    afternoon, so it was kinda quiet then. We could only find a
    small cafe to have cup of coffee and a piece of cake for lunch,
    but that really didn't matter, for I had good friend with. ^_^

  • To Owl,

    I treated Lindau just as you treated Schaffhausen. I simply passed it
    on my way to Zurich from Munich. People told me that she is the most
    attractive township in the bodensee area. I shouldn't miss it next
    time.

    Your writing style is beautiful. I came up with a picture that shows
    in "Nestle coffee" or "Mr. Brown" commercials:)
