Travel in June-- Hiking near Matterhorn 六月之旅——徒步行于马特宏峰附近

Hiking on my birthday! 徒步行中度过我的生日!

P1010526.jpg

From now on all the way Matterhorn would be ahead in our view.

从现在开始马特宏峰完全展现在我们的眼前。

Travel in June-- From France to Switzerland 六月之旅——从法国到瑞士

Driving from the Côte d'Azur to Zermatt 从法国蓝色海岸驶向瑞士采尔马特

我们的路线需要穿过意大利北部,进入瑞士前我们停在美丽的马焦雷湖休息片刻。

P1010179.jpg

The weather was still very hot there, maybe even hotter than in southern France.

那里的气温相当高,也许比法国南部还要高。

P1010185.jpg

P1010188.jpg

P1010189.jpg

P1010204.jpg

What a change when we finally entered Switzerland. All out of a sudden it became a lot cooler there!

最后我们终于到达瑞士,顿时气温冷了许多!

P1010205.jpg

P1010206.jpg

P1010208.jpg

P1010209.jpg

It was a huge change compared to France and Italy, not only the landscape but also all the buildings looked completely different.

与法国和意大利相比,瑞士有了很大的变化,无论是地形地貌,还是建筑风格,全部都不一样。

P1010210.jpg

P1010215.jpg

In a smooth trip we arrived in Zermatt at our Hotel "Bellavista".

我们一路顺利抵达采尔马特小镇,并且到了我们的贝拉维士达酒店。

P1010270.jpg

Though this hotel only looked so-so from the outside, it was the more beautiful inside.

Near the center of Zermatt there are still some houses, which show how people were living here hundreds of years ago.

在采尔马特镇中心依旧保留着一些古屋,向游人们展示几百年前当地人是如何在此居住的。

P1010291.jpg

P1010300.jpg

P1010305.jpg

Obviously the new town center is much more modern now.

显然现在新的镇中心要比过去更加现代化。

P1010315.jpg

P1010319.jpg

P1010323.jpg

There are many hotels, shops and restaurants of any type to be found in Zermatt.

在采尔马特小镇上随处可以看到酒店、商店以及各式餐馆。

Prices are not always cheap though, and not all restaurants are selling typical swiss food.

然而其价格也不是都很便宜的,而且也不是每家餐馆都卖瑞士特色小吃的。

P1010325.jpg

P1010334.jpg

P1010341.jpg

P1010360.jpg

However, we wanted to eat some typical swiss food, so we entered this small restaurant.

然而我们很想尝尝瑞士特色菜肴,于是进入了一家小餐馆里。

P1010365.jpg

P1010371.jpg

P1010372.jpg

P1010381.jpg

We ordered cheese fondue, maybe the most famous food of Switzerland.

我们点了火锅奶酪,也许是瑞士最著名的小吃。

In fact it is fun to eat. The only problem is... that the cheese is tasting terrible!

而事实上,这玩意儿吃起来很有趣,不过问题是……那奶酪的味道实在太恶心了!

After one evening of eating swiss cheese fondue you cannot stand the smell of cheese for the rest of your holiday, lol.

只要有一个晚上你吃过一次瑞士火锅奶酪,在剩下的几天假期里,你会无法再忍受那奶酪的气味,哈哈!

P1010384.jpg

P1010387.jpg

Whatever, we bravely ate our food, and still enjoyed the evening. Not least because the swiss wine was very delicious.

但不管怎样,我们勇敢地把整锅奶酪吃完,而且很享受这个夜晚,至少瑞士的葡萄酒还是非常好喝的!

P1010393.jpg

P1010395.jpg

P1010398.jpg

Back at the hotel Isabella could play a bit in the kid's corner...

回到酒店,女儿还可以在儿童游乐角里玩耍……

2100_0990.jpg

4100_0992.jpg

100_0995.jpg

100_0997.jpg

5100_0998.jpg

We finally left the villa and started our walk around the peninsula.

最后我们离开别墅,开始环绕半岛的徒步行。

100_1001.jpg

This is the only town on the peninsula: Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

这是半岛上唯一的小镇,圣让卡普费拉。

Many yachts are anchored there. Sure that is not cheap!

那里有许多私人游艇,当然其价格肯定也是不便宜!

Now we were maybe at the nicest part of the Peninsula: Paloma Beach.

此刻我们大概位于半岛最美的部分:帕洛马海滩。

This is a small private beach (you have to pay to get there) which is all surrounded by expensive private villas.

这是私人海滩(如果要过去需要付费),该海滩被昂贵的私人别墅所包围。

The water there is truly beautiful, no wonder why they call this coast "azur".

100_1016.jpg

100_1021.jpg

100_1023.jpg

100_1027.jpg

100_1032.jpg

100_1034.jpg

Unfortunately pretty much all villas are surrounded by high walls or dense vegetation, so it is pretty much impossible to catch a glimpse of them.

不过非常可惜的是所有的别墅都被高高的围墙或者密集的草木给包围住,所以我们根本不可能看清这些别墅。

So we can only imagine how nice they are.

因此我们只能想象那些别墅有多美。

100_1037.jpg

3100_1039.jpg

We continued the public route around the peninsula.

我们继续沿着公共小径环绕半岛。

100_1046.jpg

100_1061.jpg

The southern and western parts of Cap Ferrat are still nice, but not so spectacular anymore.

费拉角的南部和西部也是很美的,但没有之前的景观那么引人入胜。

100_1064.jpg

100_1076.jpg

100_1083.jpg

Time for a rest for us, and some opportunity for Isabella to "walk" around.

到了休息时间,也是我们给女儿下来四处“走动”的时候!

100_1085.jpg

100_1088.jpg

100_1090.jpg

100_1091.jpg

100_1103.jpg

Cute baby.

可爱的宝贝!

100_1105.jpg

100_1108.jpg

100_1109.jpg

100_1113.jpg

100_1114.jpg

Later our camera broke, so we could not take any more photos this day.

后来我们的相机坏了,所以无法继续拍摄更多的相片。

Fortunately we had visited the most interesting places already.

但幸运的是,我们已经参观了最有趣的地方了。

But on the next day we had to spend lots of time to get a new camera in emergency!

不过明天我们要花大量时间去买一部新的相机以作急用!

Believe it or not, in no other park of the world more people committed suicide than here.

Travel in June-- Cannes 六月之旅——戛纳

La Croisette - The long beach in Cannes克鲁瓦塞特大道—戛纳的滨海大道

sunny 30 °C

We went to Cannes mostly to go to the beach to give our baby daughter the chance to swim in the sea.

我们前往戛纳的主要目的是让女儿体验一下在海里游泳。

It soon turned out that Cannes is pretty crowded, so we had to park our car quite far away.

车一开进戛纳马上就找不到停车位,后来只好把车停在离海滩有些远的地方。

4100_9880.jpg

Here we reached the beginning of 'La Croisette', one of the most famous beaches of the whole Côte d'Azur.

这里是克鲁瓦塞特大道的起点,这里是整个蓝色海岸的最著名海滨之一。

But at this part there was a private beach (notice all the beach parasols), so we had to walk further down to find the public area.

但是这部分属于私人海滨浴场(有遮阳伞的都是),所以我们还得再走好远才能到达公共浴场。

100_9886.jpg

8100_9891.jpg

3100_9889.jpg

100_9892.jpg

We passed by Hotel Palais Stephanie & Casino.

100_9895.jpg

Another big hotel.

7100_9897.jpg

100_9900.jpg

After many private areas and a huge amount of parasols, we finally reached the public area, which is no more than about 5% of the whole beach.

走过许多私人浴场区和大片的遮阳伞后,我们终于来到了公共海滨浴场,这公共区小的可怜,全长占整片海滨浴场不足5%。

3100_9907.jpg

But it was still big enough for our small family.

尽管如此,对我们这样的小家庭,这里的空间还是足够的。

6100_9904.jpg

At the beach first we gave our Isabella some sun protection.

我们一到海滩就给伊萨贝拉采取防晒措施。

6100_9911.jpg

Rest.

But our cute daughter quickly got bored of resting and wanted to get active instead.

但是我们可爱的女儿很快就厌倦休息,想要到处转转。

100_9939.jpg

So she wanted to stand up and explore the nearby area.

于是她要站起来,探索周边新事物。

100_9944.jpg

100_9946.jpg

4100_9957.jpg

100_9973.jpg

And then we went with her to the sea - for the first time in her life!

100_9977.jpg

100_9990.jpg

And she liked it there!

她很喜欢那里!

100_9983.jpg

6100_9994.jpg

5100_9998.jpg

"Mama let's go back and play some more!"

100_9999.jpg

101_0012.jpg

"Yeah, the beach is fun!"

“耶,海滩太好玩了!”

2101_0015.jpg

"I want to touch the waves!"

“我要摸一下海浪!”

8101_0010.jpg

101_0026.jpg

101_0050.jpg

In the evening we had dinner just a bit north of La Croisette.

傍晚我们到克鲁瓦塞特大道的北部吃晚餐。

La Grande Corniche, Menton, Nice 沿海高路、芒通和尼斯

这是拉图尔碧镇,该镇以胜利纪念碑而著名,这个纪念碑是公元前7年的时候,罗马人为了庆祝战胜阿尔卑斯部落取得至关重要的胜利而建立的。

After this victory Rome could connect Italy, Spain and France and thus control the whole western mediterranean area.

战争胜利后,罗马将意大利、西班牙和法国结合在一起,然后共同控制整个地中海西部地区。

8100_9800.jpg

5100_9804.jpg

Unfortunately the Tropaeum Alpium was damaged later, so only a few columns of it are left until today.

遗憾的是,这座纪念碑后来被破坏了,至今只留下寥寥无几的几根柱子。

4100_9808.jpg

Thereafter we got some first views of maybe the most impressive place of the Côte d'Azur: Monaco.

后来让我们印象最为深刻的蓝色海岸的美景就是摩纳哥。
