Join me on a walking tour through Dublin city. 跟我去都柏林走走

Last night I arrived in Dublin city. It was colder and windier than I thought. I often complained about the Belgian summer, until now I see the Irish summer. But luckily it’s sunny today, still cold though, at around 17 degrees celsius. I wandered around the city center and also joined a walking tour. If you know the Dublin’s great official city tourism website VISITDUBLIN, you can for sure feel how much effort the city put on its city tourism. In the city, there’re many walking tours, much more than any other city I’ve visited.

昨天晚上刚到都柏林的时候,我真是震惊了,居然还有比比利时更冷的夏天。都柏林的夏夜真是又冷风又大。我顿时对比利时的夏天再没了怨恨,哈哈。还好,今天是个大晴天,虽然只有17度左右,阳光还是很不错。上午我在城里走走,都柏林算是个挺舒服的城市,我第一眼就很喜欢,下午我参加了一个免费的3小时步行团。在欧洲和南美很多大城市都有这样的以小费为收入的免费步行团。神奇的是都柏林这样的中型城市具有的免费团竟然比其他任何城市都多。都柏林旅游发展的很好,如果你们还不知道,我想介绍他们的官方城市旅游网站VISITDUBLIN,做得非常用心。

How you can enjoy a rainy day in Dublin. 雨下再大又怎样,干脆开心的淋一场

I read some comments left from Irish Steemians on my last post and realized how lucky I was yesterday. As you can see, today it was cloudy and later rainy. Still, I went to the city for a walk. There’re always something to do even on a bad day.

我在我昨天的帖子里读到一些爱尔兰朋友的评论,说爱尔兰的天气可糟糕了。今天我总算是体会到昨天的好天气是多么难能可贵啊!今天天瞬间变得阴阴的。虽然好天气没了,但是我还是打算去街上走走。体验一把爱尔兰人的周日时光。

Beautiful foggy day in Dublin Bay area 烟雨朦胧的都柏林湾

Today I made a trip to Dublin Bay area, from Howth to the North Bull Island. It’s been a foggy day but I enjoyed it. Dublin fog has kept many tour company from doing a day tour in the bay area. During my visit, I’ve barely seen any tourists. I wasn’t see much of the Dublin Bay view but still I loved it, especially my visit to the Bull Island. As a fan of the traditional Asian ink paintings, so I’m not so picky at the weather when on holidays. I appreciate the misty sceneries.

今天我去都柏林湾的霍斯半岛和北牛岛玩了一天。天气跟昨天一样不是很好,一大早整个海湾都被雾笼罩,虽然如此我还是玩的挺开心。大雾让都柏林市内的很多旅行社无法组织一日游,所以整个都柏林海湾都特别安静,不被打扰。都说爱尔兰是个音乐和诗歌的圣地,我想也就是这种阴郁的天气才造就了情感丰富的诗人和音乐家吧。我喜欢水墨画,所以对我来说,旅行也不怎么挑天气,阴天雾天都有它的美,尤其在英国和爱尔兰的城市。

‘Once’ in Dublin 《曾经》在都柏林

Have you ever seen the movie titled Once? This low budget modern-day musical was shot in only 17 days, on the streets of Dublin. ONCE is one of my favorite movies and is one of the main reason why I wanted to visit Dublin city. It’s such a beautiful movie, especially the ending. During my trip in Dublin, I try to find some movie scenes in real life. Here’s a song from its soundtrack, in case you haven’t seen the movie yet.

你们有没看过有部爱尔兰电影叫做《曾经》?这部只花了17天拍完,长度仅有一个半小时的电影更像一个长篇的音乐剧。当年这部电影的原声带以黑马姿态拿下了奥斯卡的最佳音乐奖。我一直很喜欢这部美好感人的小电影。也一直记得了拍摄电影的都柏林这个城市。这次来都柏林,我特地抽空去电影拍摄的几个场景走了走。如果你还没看过这部电影,先来停听听这首贯穿始终的《Falling Slowly》吧。
