The first day in Spain 西班牙之旅的第一天

Arriving late in the evening 晚上很迟才到达

semi-overcast 21 °C

Today was my birthday, just before we left home and drove to Munich airport, I got a big surprise from my honey, because he gave me a nice birthday card and two presents without telling me in advance. Besides, this travel to Spain also was arranged by my honey, he wanted to give me a wonderful birthday. I was very happy and moved, I wanted to thank him for doing so much things for me —— Honey, I love you very much!

今天是我的生日,就在我们准备出门前往德国慕尼黑机场时,老公给了我一个很大的惊喜,他把事先偷偷准备好了的生日卡片和两份礼物送给了我。而且此次西班牙之旅也是老公精心为我安排的,他想给我过一个精彩难忘的生日。我非常开心和感动,很感谢老公为我所做的一切——老公,我好爱你哦!

At the begining, it took us about 2 hours to drive and arrive Munich airport. After parking our car, we waited for our flight to Malaga. Unfortunately, the flight was delayed about one hour. When we arrived Malaga airport, it was already 9pm. But the worse thing was that we had to wait for more than one hour to stand in a long line for renting a car. It really wasted our too much time, so that we could not go for short night sightseeing in Malaga city. When we arrived the apartment, already 11:30pm, we were too tired but still too hungry, so we had to go to a nearby restaurant to take a dinner at once.

首先,我们开了大概2个小时的车抵达慕尼黑机场。等把车寄存好后,我们就在机场里等待前往西班牙马拉加的航班。不幸的是,该航班晚点近一个小时。当我们到达马拉加机场时,已经是晚上9点了。但更糟的是,我们为了租车,还要排很长的队伍,一个多小时的长队等待,浪费我们太多时间,使我们无法按原计划到马拉加市中心观赏夜景。当我们到达预定的酒店公寓时,已经是晚上11点半了,此刻疲惫不堪的我们饥饿难耐,于是马上到附近的一家餐馆里就餐。

Because of those unlucky things happened and wasting too much time at the airport, we had no chance to take more pictures for the first day in Spain, just only few ones which taken on the plane and in the restaurant. What a pity! But the next 4 days in Spain were quite nice, we took lots of beautiful pictures for charming south of Spain.

正因为那些倒霉的事情浪费了我们太多时间在机场里面,以致在此次西班牙之旅的第一天,我们无法拍摄到更多的像片,仅有的几张只是来自飞机上和餐馆里的。真的非常可惜!但值得安慰的是,接下来的4天,我们拍摄到了许多迷人的西班牙南部的像片。

100_6677.jpg

On the sky of Munich, I took the picture of the land.

在德国慕尼黑上空,我拍摄到了该市地面的像片。

100_6693.jpg

When the plane got higher, could see much more clouds.

当飞机飞行到更高位置的时侯,可以看到很多白云。

100_6686.jpg

My honey was reading the guiding book of south of Spain. For this travel, he got so much prepation on many details. He was really good at doing them, and also was a good guide for me.

老公正在阅读有关西班牙南部旅游的介绍书。为了此次旅行,他在许多细节方面都做了充分的准备。可以说,他很善于这方面的处理和安排,同时也是我的称职导游。

100_6694.jpg

It was our food on the plane, very simple, and I did not like them. Maybe because this flight ticket was cheap, the food was also very cheap, hmm... I think so!

这是我们飞机上吃的晚餐,很简单,我不喜欢,也许是因为此航班票价便宜的缘故吧,嗯……我想是这样的!

100_6700.jpg

About 2.45 hours flying, we already could see the beautiful sea on the sky of Malaga...

大概飞行了2.45个小时,我们在马拉加上空已经可以看到美丽的大海…

100_6702.jpg

...and it was getting more and more clear, could see the buildings in this big city.

此景越来越清晰,还可以看到该市的许多建筑。

100_6704.jpg

Now it was ready for landing on Malaga airport.

此刻飞机正准备在马拉加机场着陆。

100_6709.jpg

In Spain, the night life was much more longer than Austria. When we arrived the apartment, it was already 11:30pm, but still could find many people ( most of them were the travelers ) on the street.

西班牙的夜生活比奥地利还长,当我们抵达酒店公寓的时侯,已经是晚上11点半了,但是在大街上,仍然热闹非凡(大部分都是前来这里度假的游人)。

Then we chose a restaurant to take a dinner which just was near our apartment. At that time, it was almost 12am, very late, and we were very hugry.

于是我们找了家离公寓不远的餐馆就餐。此时已是凌晨12点了,我们饥饿不堪。

100_6710.jpg

Our big dinner, so much delicious sea food!

我们丰盛的晚餐,很多美味可口的海鲜!

100_6712.jpg

But the rice tasted disgusting, a strong strange smell, so that we just ate few, then could not eat any more. Besides, Spanish salad was also too awful, tasted very strange, worse than Austrian salad. My honey told me that in the guiding book, already had many people complaining the awful Spanish salad, haha...

但是这里的米饭很难吃,有种奇怪的味道,我们只吃了几口就再也吃不下了。此外,西班牙的沙拉也很难吃,怪怪的,奥地利的沙拉强多了。老公说在旅游书上看到很多游客也在抱怨西班牙的沙拉有多难吃,呵呵……

But the seafood, french fries and the wine tasted great!

但是这里的海鲜,薯条以及葡萄酒都很不错!

Gosaukamm

Hiking on green grass below high rocks

sunny 24 °C

This sunday we drove 2 hours by car to do some middle-length hike near some bizarre rocks at the border of the Salzburg and the Upper Austria region.

100_6332.jpg

Already from the street we could see the nice mountain scenery

100_6331.jpg

The high mountain in the middle of the picture is called "Bischofsmuetze", as its two peaks are looking like a bishop's hat.

It's also a famous place for rock-climbing.

100_6338.jpg

We parked our car near the "Oberfeldalm", a place which many people were visiting to have lunch and walk around in the beautiful surrounding.

100_6341.jpg

100_6345.jpg

At Oberfeldalm, the kids also have an area to play...

100_6355.jpg

...and a chance to see some cute animals.

100_6356.jpg

100_6359.jpg

100_6363.jpg

100_6377.jpg

However, we did not stay too long at Oberfeldalm, as we have come here to do some hiking...

100_6379.jpg

...mixed with a bit of climbing.

100_6388.jpg

100_64001.jpg

Later we happened to get close to some local animals (ie cows).

100_6408.jpg

"Moooooooooooo!"

100_6426.jpg

100_6368.jpg

During our hike we got many more lovely views of mountain Bischofsmuetze...

100_6370.jpg

...and the surrounding areas.

100_6441.jpg

100_6452.jpg

100_6470.jpg

100_6477.jpg

100_6479a.jpg

So green is the Austrian summer!

100_6484.jpg

100_6488.jpg

100_6491.jpg

100_6493.jpg

100_6496.jpg

100_6502.jpg

Having a rest and a beer.

100_6505.jpg

100_6534.jpg

Continuing our way...

100_6546.jpg

100_6568.jpg

100_6575.jpg

...until we saw a hut in the distance...

100_6577a.jpg

100_6579.jpg

100_6582.jpg

100_6587.jpg

We had a rest and some food at the other side of the hut.

100_6598.jpg

100_6599.jpg

100_6600.jpg

100_6602.jpg

The mountain on the right is already part of the "Dachstein" mountain group, which is the highest mountain in the province of Upper Austria.

Maybe we will climb that later some day.

100_6615.jpg

Finally we also had another drink at the place shown above.

It was already 21:00 in the evening, but at this time of the year it is still not dark in Austria.

The fourth day in Czechia

Castle Hluboka

semi-overcast 26 °C

On our last day in Czechia we visited castle Hluboka, just a few kilometres north from Budweis.

100_6147.jpg

Before going there, we saw this nuclear power station of Temelin.

These 4 huge cooling towers just were built near the border between Austria and Czechia. It once made Austrian people scared, because they worried about the possibility of exploding.

However, when you see them in the landscape, then they even look a bit beautiful, and not dangerous at all.

100_6150.jpg

100_6154.jpg

When we arrived in the small town Hluboka, we had lunch first in a restaurant just a few meters from this nice small church.

100_6155.jpg

The dumplings and Sauerkraut were different with Austrian ones, but they all tasted not so bad, I liked them so much.

100_6159.jpg

Look, I was so happy to take such a delicious food.

100_6164.jpg

Later we went up to the castle, seeing the first parts of it when passing through a small forest.

100_6161.jpg

It was a very magnificent castle, each corner of it looked like a beautiful picture...

100_6165.jpg

100_6166.jpg

100_6168.jpg

100_6170.jpg

100_6172.jpg

100_6174.jpg

100_6175.jpg

100_6176.jpg

100_6177.jpg

100_6181.jpg

100_6186.jpg

Hluboka is really a nice and romantic castle.

Unfortunately we had no opportunity to take pictures of the nice interiors, as photographing was not allowed there.

100_6188.jpg

100_6191.jpg

In the park near the castle.

100_6193.jpg

100_6198.jpg

Inside the castle.

100_6199.jpg

100_6214.jpg

100_6196.jpg

Before the main tour through the interior rooms started, we had some time to climb the castle tower first...

100_6201.jpg

100_6202.jpg

...from where we had a nice view on the park and surrounding area.

100_6203.jpg

100_6205.jpg

100_6215.jpg

100_6218.jpg

In Czechia, we baught one bear which named Sissi, and one hedgehog which named Nene. They were very cute, we liked them so much.

When my honey was driving, I put Nene on his shoulder and took a picture for them, looked so interesting.

100_6227.jpg

I took the picture with Nene by myself in our car.

100_6220.jpg

Sissi and Nene, hehe...

100_6233.jpg

Before we went back to Austria, we decided to take Czechia food for the last time. Then we drove to a small village close to the border, and took the dinner in a local small restaurant.

My honey ordered two sweet dumplings, very big and round dumplings, looked so funny. I made a fun of them, and said they looked like two D cup breasts, haha...

100_6235.jpg

I ordered this Palatschinken with banana and icecream, tasted very nice.

The third day in Czechia

Visiting Budweis and having BBQ again in the evening

semi-overcast 29 °C

This day we visited the biggest city in the south of Czechia.
It is called Ceske Budejovice in Czech language, or Budweis in German.

Budweis is most known for it's delicious beer, the "Budweiser", but is also a nice place for sight seeing and shopping.

100_6095.jpg

On our way from the parking site to the city center we passed by these beautiful churches.

100_6100.jpg

100_6102.jpg

This is the main city square of Budweis.

100_6109.jpg

100_6103.jpg

And this is the townhall, which has been restaurated recently.

Isn't it beautiful?

100_6105.jpg

100_6106.jpg

Some more impressions of the city square.

100_6101.jpg

100_6111.jpg

100_6107.jpg

100_6113.jpg

Later we took lunch in a restaurant nearby.

I had beef with bacon & mushroom sauce, and my honey had wild boar.

100_6119.jpg

Later, in the evening, when we arrived the hut, it was raining first. Waiting for about one hour, we started barbecue when the rain stopped.

100_6117.jpg

My honey was good at making fire, so it burned quickly.

100_6125.jpg

100_6127.jpg

Comparing with the barbecue of last time, this time was much better, because we were more skillful on managing it well, especially on making the food taste more delicious.

100_6130.jpg

My honey was trying to make the fire burning nicely.

100_6131.jpg

My honey was waiting for the right time to start barbecue.

100_6132.jpg

I applyed more BBQ seasonings on the food, and hoped it would make them taste much better than last time.

100_6136.jpg

Now it was getting dark, and we were already very hungry...

100_6140.jpg

Looking at such a delicious food, do you also want to taste? hehe...

100_6145.jpg

When we were eating, suddenly found some people playing the fireworks beside the lake. There were many different kinds of fireworks, but it was pity that I did not take enough pictures for them in time, just only two.

Looking at the beautiful fireworks, we felt so romantic, and made our delicious BBQ dinner much more wonderful.

Besides, this day also was a special day for my honey and me, because it was the 4th month of our marriage life. I do hope our marriage can keep happy forever!

The second day in Czechia

Visiting the historic centre and castle of Krumau

sunny 29 °C

Today should be a very nice day, nice weather, nice sight seeing, nice food...but unfortunately, after coming back from the castle, we found my honey's bag disappeared, the thief opened our car and stole it. Such a unlucky day! My honey said that it was his first time to encounter stealing, and almost could not believe. Because in Europe, the public security should be much more safer than Asia. But it was really a truth, we had to face the fact. However, it was also a good lesson for us, we will be much more careful where we go.

100_5942.jpg

In front of our hut, there was a quiet lake. Everyday we could see some people swimming, or lying on the grass and enjoying the sunshine.

100_5953.jpg

For entering the historical part of the city Krumau we passed through this big gate.

100_5959.jpg

100_5955.jpg

A first view of Krumau.

100_5961.jpg

Then we crossed a bridge and took the first pictures of Krumau castle.

100_5962.jpg

100_5968.jpg

100_5970.jpg

The inner city of Krumau consists of many small roads...

100_5966.jpg

...and lots of souvenir shops.

100_5972.jpg

There was a funny statue in front of a restaurant.

100_5979.jpg

100_5980.jpg

100_5985.jpg

After walking through some of the small roads...

100_5987.jpg

100_5974.jpg

...we went up to the castle.

100_5975.jpg

100_5994.jpg

Just below the castle entrance there was a bear in a big cage area, walking around slowly, looked like very lonely...

100_5997.jpg

Beside of the bear, it was its shit.

100_6004.jpg

First we went up the big tower...

100_6005.jpg

...which offered some nice views on Krumau.

100_6006.jpg

100_6022.jpg

100_6024.jpg

100_6025.jpg

100_6028.jpg

100_6029.jpg

100_6032.jpg

100_6020.jpg

Thereafter we had to wait until the main tour through the inner rooms of the castle started,

100_6035.jpg

so we just walked around a bit,

100_6037.jpg

until we could enter the inner rooms.

100_6009.jpg

100_6042.jpg

This carriage was only used for a single trip of the prince to visit the pope in Italy.

100_6046.jpg

The dining room.

100_6051.jpg

100_6057.jpg

The blue saloon.

100_6059.jpg

100_6061.jpg

The bedroom of the queen.

100_6065.jpg

The small theatre room.

100_6068.jpg

100_6073.jpg

Later we went to the upper part of the castle, to visit the castle's park.

100_6076.jpg

100_6077.jpg

100_6081.jpg

Such a cute fountain.

100_6084.jpg

100_6085.jpg

100_6086.jpg

Near the park we also could find some more nice views down on the city.

100_6087.jpg

100_6089.jpg

100_6091.jpg

This was Czechia local food, very special! They put the soup and sausaages into the hollow bread.

100_6092.jpg

100_6094.jpg

The sweet Palatschinken with icecream.

The first day in Czechia

Barbeque evening in Stilec

sunny 26 °C

Today was the national holiday in Austria, so we took the opportunity to go to Czechia to stay there from Thursday to Sunday.

We decided to rent a small hut at a camping site near a small lake in Stilec, which is nicely located between some major Czechian tourist locations.

100_5844.jpg

Unfortunately when we arrived at 3pm in the afternoon, we still had to wait another two hours until the office of the camping site opened.

So we had some food at the local restaurant first.

100_5845.jpg

The main course was mixed BBQ meat with various types of vegetables and potatoes.

100_5847.jpg

The drinks are apple juice and Czechian beer.

100_5850.jpg

Finally we had mixed fruits for desert.

100_6116.jpg

Driving on the road, we could find many sexy hookers looking for their business. It was legel in Czechia, but I had never seen it in Austria. So i took some pictures slinkingly in our car. But I was scared to be seen by those hookers or the drivers, so that those pictures had not good quality, and could not see clearly.

100_6228.jpg

100_6115.jpg

This hooker was bargaining with the driver in the car, but they took long time to do that, so we just wondered if they also did something special else, hehe...

100_5855.jpg

This is our hut in which we spent three nights.

It's not very luxurious, but good enough for a few days, and best of all is that nobody minds if you make a campfire for your own BBQ just in front of the hut.

100_5862.jpg

100_5873.jpg

To start a fire, first you go to the nearby forest...

100_5882.jpg

...and collect some wood...

100_5885.jpg

...and break it to smaller pieces.

100_5892.jpg

Then you arrange that wood to a nice pile, smaller wood inside, bigger wood outside.

You light it... and - voilá - you have a fire.

100_5905.jpg

If the wood is dry and you do it right, then it will burn quickly.

100_5910.jpg

100_5911.jpg

In the meantime you prepare some delicious food such as pork, chicken meat, sausages, vegetables, potatoes...

100_5917.jpg

100_5914.jpg

...and when the fire has burned down, but the big pieces of wood are still hot...

100_5921.jpg

...you can grill all that food...

100_5916.jpg

100_5927.jpg

At this time, it was very dark, so we had to use the torch and head-lighters to make everything looking clearly.

100_5928.jpg

...and enjoy it later.

100_5935.jpg

Very delicious!
:)

Climbing with Alexander

sunny 25 °C

Today we went to climb with Alexander who was my honey's best workmate.

Alexander was a fresher for climbing rocks. It was his fourth time to come here, also was the first time to climb with me ( the previous three times he climbed with my honey, when i was in China).

Today my honey taught him how to climb the rocks with managing the hooks. It was almost the same practice for the real climbing outdoor. This way needed have much more power and energy, as well as needed more skills and balance. Alexander could do it nicely at the begining, but with the roads getting more and more difficult, he could not finish the whole one, just only half. But whatever, he still liked climbing, and my honey also encouraged him to be a good climber.

100_5644.jpg

My honey was teaching Alexander how to tie a knot...

100_5646.jpg

100_5648.jpg

Put the rope on the first hook.

100_5649.jpg

Everything was ok, then began to climb...

100_5652.jpg

Put the rope on the second, third, fourth.....hooks while climbing up.

100_5654.jpg

100_5657.jpg

You could see how tall the climbing wall was.

100_5666.jpg

my honey's turn now...

100_5667.jpg

100_5669.jpg

Look, my honey was so sweaty, haha...

100_5674.jpg

Coming down.

100_5693.jpg

My turn now...

100_5705.jpg

100_5722.jpg

I was using the chalk to make my hands were not so slippery.

100_5738.jpg

100_5745.jpg

100_5754.jpg

100_5756.jpg

When I came down, i was already very sweaty. My arms and fingers were all very tired and painful.

100_5763.jpg

I was protecting Alexander.

100_5765.jpg

100_57701.jpg

100_5793.jpg

100_5796.jpg

Our turn now...

100_5797.jpg

100_5801.jpg

100_5809.jpg

100_5824.jpg

Packing the rope when we finished climbing.

Stift Melk

A beautiful monastery at the river Donau

semi-overcast 25 °C

Two days ago, we took too long time for hiking, it made us feel very painful all over, so today, we chose sight seeing for relax.

As the weather was getting cold in the west of Austria, we decided to go to some place in the eastern half. That's why we chose Stift Melk (Melk Monastery) which is located near river Donau, right at the beginning of the beautiful Wachau Valley.

100_5423.jpg

100_5422.jpg

100_5416.jpg

Before going to the monastery we took lunch in a nice restaurant overlooking the river Donau.

100_5419.jpg

100_5421.jpg

100_5427.jpg

We ate vegetable salad...

100_5429.jpg

and fish...

100_5430.jpg

and pork with mushroom sauce.

100_5437.jpg

It tasted very deliciously!

100_5616.jpg

This was the entrance of Stift Melk.

100_5445.jpg

Here really looked like a big park, although there were many visitors coming from all over the world, it was still very quiet and clean.

100_5446.jpg

100_5451.jpg

100_5613.jpg

"I will die soon..."

sunny 29 °C

This was my first hiking on the second day of my coming back to Austria. It was really a crazy way, because I should have a good rest, or just took some easy and short hiking, but I did not.

The Sparber mountain was very steep, totally we took about 6 hours (4 hours for hiking), almost could not believe I could survive. When I was going down, a small part of wet road made me fall down. fortunately it was not serious.

This hotel was just in front of the parking place, a very nice and cute hotel, many people were eating outside, and enjoying the beautiful sunshine.

Sparber has two peaks.
This is the left, lower peak.
We climbed the higher peak on the right.

After 2/3 regular hiking, the last 1/3 road had some special ladder ways...

The ladder ways were not difficult, and also not very steep...

On the 3/4 part of Sparber mountain, we already could see nice view of the beautiful Wolfgangsee...

Sitting on the top of Sparber mountain, the sunlight was very strong, so we had to apply more sun block lotion...

This was the thunderstorm clouds, according to the weather forecast, today might have thunderstorm, but actually did not!

On the way of going down the mountain, we saw many goats. This one looked very old, but it was strange that how it could reach the top of the house, because there was not any ladder around the house. My honey told me maybe it had good jumping talent, hehe...

Tao Yuan Cave

Travel in Yong'an

semi-overcast 20 °C

Yong'an is my second hometown, because i grew up here. But for my honey, this city is still a little strange for him, although it is the second time to come here.

On the day before my honey left China, the mayor of Yong'an city and his wife specially invited and arranged us to Tao Yuan Cave. The mayor's wife went with us in person, and asked the best tour guide to introduce the famous scenery spot as detailed as possible. The main goal was to let my honey know much more about Yong'an, because on our wedding dinner, they saw our lots of pictures about the daily life in Austria, and found we all like travel and sports so much. That was the reason why the mayor decided to recommend Tao Yuan Cave to my honey, and hoped him would like the natural site of Yong'an.

However, we had not enough time to stay longer, it was very pity that we could not go to visit other beautiful scenery spots in Yong'an, so we had to leave them for the next time.

Nice rocks.

This bridge is just after the entrance.

All the bridges and paths at Tao Yuan Cave were lovely and in excellent condition.

This is the famous Ray of Sky.

100_4682.jpg

It had been written in the Guinness World Records.

100_4694.jpg

The "Ray of Sky" is a very narrow gap between two rocks at Tao Yuan Cave.

It's a pity that the pictures can not show it so clearly, but it's really very narrow and it gave me a warning not to eat too much in the future or maybe I won't be able to fit through when we want to come here again in a few years. ;)

This picture shows nicely how the various sights and view points are connected by those comfortable pathways.

It's just a pity that it was a bit a foggy day, so it was not possible to take pictures of the whole area, as all distant objects were difficult to see in the mist.

So beautiful green trees!

In Austria many of the trees are still without leaves at this time, but Fujian province is a lot warmer through most of the year.

This poem was written by Li Gang, whom was an ancient Chinese Prime Minister in Song Dynasty.

The main meaning of the poem was: Li Gang thought Tao Yuan Cave was a very beautiful place, and he was worried that there would not be many people visiting here.

However, nowadays, Tao Yuan Cave is more and more popular in China.

So nice and clean is Tao Yuan Cave!

I hope to visit many more places like this when I travel to China again with my honey.
