Travel in June-- Last day in France 六月之旅——在法国的最后一天

Getting a new digicam and playing at the beach. 买到新的数码相机和海边玩耍

semi-overcast 28 °C

As our old camera got broken yesterday, we spent half of the day by driving to various electronic stores to get a new digicam asap, because this should be our last day in France.

由于昨天旧的相机坏掉,所以今天我们花了半天的功夫驾车到各家电器店里想尽快买到新的数码相机,因为这是我们法国之旅的最后一天。

Fortunately we got the Panasonic Lumix TZ7 for an ok price at Carrefour in Nice.

幸运的是我们在尼斯的家乐福超市里买到一部松下Lumix TZ7型号的数码相机,其价格还算不错。

This camera is much better than our old one, especially in low light. It also has a 12x zoom and can take HD videos.

这部相机比我们原先的那个还更好,尤其是在光线比较暗的时候拍出来的效果很不错。而且该相机有12倍调焦功能以及可以拍摄高清晰录像。

After buying the camera we went swimming with Isabella at the beach of La Napouille again.

买完相机后,我们就带着女儿再去拉那坡以小镇的海边去游泳。

Unfortunately the weather was very cloudy this day, making the first pictures that we took with our new digicam not very colorful.

可惜今天的天气阴沉沉的,我们用新相机拍出来的前几张相片都没什么色彩。

Playing at the pool and the beach 在游泳池里和海边戏水

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!
:)

Pluscity

rain 5 °C

Pluscity is the biggest shopping mall in Linz. Everyday you can find many people shopping or eating there.

The pity thing is that all the shops in Austria do not open on Sundays, and all are closed on 7:00pm from Mondays to Fridays, and 5:00pm on Saturdays.

Now Christmas Day is coming, it is the biggest and the most important festival in the western countries. So from the pictures, we can see the beautiful decorations for Christmas in Pluscity.

Urfahrmarkt

Visiting a fairground in Linz

sunny 17 °C

"Urfahrmarkt" is a local fairground in the city of Linz, which takes place twice a year, in spring and in autumn.

DCP_3475.jpg

There are many different things to do at Urfahrmarkt.
One can take one of the many fairground rides; shop for toys, clothes, accessories or many other things; taste some local or exotic snacks...

DCP_3490.jpg

...or visit one of the big tents to have a beer there and listen to Austrian folk music spiced up with some comedy acts and other entertainments.

Spitz

Autumn in the wineyards

sunny 26 °C

Spitz is a cute small village near river Donau in the "Wachau" valley. There are many grape fields, the wine is of very good quality and thus very popular and famous in Wachau.

This day we were taking some ~2.5 hours walk in the wine fields and later tasting some fresh wine ("Sturm") at a restaurant along the way back.

DCP_3283.jpg

The feeling of being a farmer is not bad, see, my honey and me looked so cool when we were sitting on the tractor, haha!

DCP_3317.jpg

DCP_3290.jpg

These grapes are nearly ripe for eating or producing delicious wine.

DCP_3298.jpg

DCP_3362.jpg

This place is called the "Red Gate".
When we took the picture there, suddenly so many visitors came, if not, i thought maybe the picture would look better.

DCP_3374.jpg

After our walk we visited a restaurant to eat some local food, and drink my favourite type of wine, the sweet "Sturm".

Pöstlingberg

On a hill near Linz

sunny 24 °C

"Pöstlingberg" is the name of a small hill right next to Linz, which is known to offer the nicest view on the city.
Unfortunately on our day of visit, the visibility was so bad, so that - although the sun was shining - we did not really see much of the city.

So we visited a few other places on Pöstlingberg, such as...

DCP_3071.jpg

...a fairy tale world, which is featuring scenes of many popular stories (in the picture: "Sleeping Beauty").

DCP_3098.jpg

...the church on top, which is also a popular wedding place.

d026.jpg

Like this feeling...

DCP_3135.jpg

...and finally a restaurant, where we took this nice picture just outside the restaurant on a kid's playground.
