[Beautiful Sunday] Picnic in the Park, meet friends at a Street Food Festival. 美好的周日:全民野餐节,跟朋友逛小吃节。

What’s the best thing to do on a sunny Sunday afternoon? Go have a picnic with your friends, eat and drink in a park!

In the summer there’re different activities every week in Leuven city. This weekend is “Picnic in the park” and ” hapje-tapje” which means small-portioned street food. We have so many street food in Asia. Before when I lived in China, I can eat two meals on the street every day, sometimes ate while walking. But in Belgium, it’s a rare thing. It’s nice to see everybody is excited and having a party with their snack in the hand!

Sometimes I think living in different countries makes us appreciate something we used to take for granted, such as street food, late-night shopping, which I can’t find in Europe, or tasty desserts, cheap coffee or nicer climate here in Europe.

最近的天气总是阴雨,好不容易迎来了阳光灿烂的周末,气温在24度左右。这么舒服的天气,当然不能待在家里浪费了。加上鲁汶的夏天活动很多,每周都有不同的主题。这周末的主题是吃和玩。在市中心的公园里,举办了一年一度的全民野餐会,城市里还有Hapje-tapje小吃节。

在比利时很少能找到价廉物美的街头小吃,不比国内或者亚洲其他国家啊。以前我住在国内的时候,经常买个牛肉煎饼就解决一餐了,而这里“小吃”成了一年一度的节日,平常可找不到!我觉得在不同国家居住给我带来最大的改变就是学会珍惜我们容易想当然的东西:比如在国内随处可见的珍珠奶茶,街边小吃夜市,淘宝和开得很晚的店……当然了我也很珍惜欧洲这里信手拈来的新鲜空气,宜人的气候等等。

Long weekend in Paris #2 去巴黎过个长周末

In my last post, I took my lovely Steemit friends around in Paris’ most famous spots. Today I’m not that lucky to have another sunny day, but I think Paris is a city that is beautiful both on a sunny or cloudy day. Today I take you to discover a bit more of the city, let’s take a walk in Rue de Rivoli, La Louvre, Le Marais and Jardin du Luxembourg.

在昨天的帖子里,我带我可爱的Steemit朋友们去了巴黎一些著名的地方,像是圣母院和铁塔。今天天气并不如昨天那么好,但是我觉得巴黎就和伦敦一样,是晴天和阴天都很美的城市。今天我带你们去探索城市的其他角落吧,去看一些有意思的街道和公园。

Long weekend in Paris #1 去巴黎过个长周末

I’m in Paris for a long weekend. In Belgium we get a four-day weekend because tomorrow is the Assumption day, a Catholic holiday celebrated in many parts of Europe. So I was thinking why not just escape to Paris? With the help of sharing economy, airbnb and blablacar, I was able to book my trip the last minute. I’ve been here many times but every time I find something special. This city is never boring to me. This time, it’s even more special because I’m going to try out my new T-shirt in some most touristic spots in Paris.

大家好,我现在在巴黎过一个长周末。由于明天是天主教的一个假期,所以欧洲很多国家都放一天或者两天假,这个周末我有四天假期。所以干脆想着逃离比利时,来巴黎看看。由于是最后一分钟的决定,还好有AirBnB和BlaBlacar这样的分享经济的存在,我还是成功在旺季来到巴黎。我觉得巴黎最棒的一点就是,她是个很有活力的大城市,她是永恒的,同时也是不停变换的。我总能在这里找到以前没有见过的新鲜事物。

[Favorite cities] #8 Sighișoara, Transylvania. The birthplace of Dracula「吸血鬼的故乡」德古拉伯爵住在罗马尼亚

I love Romania, especially Transylvania area. Its forested valleys and Gothic castles are forever embedded in people’s imaginations. During my trip in this land of dark fairy-tales, Sighișoara is definitely my favourite stop. It’s located deep in the middle of Transylvania. It‘s known as the birthplace of Dracula (Vlad Tepes).

我非常爱罗马尼亚,算我在东欧最喜欢的国家。尤其是特兰西瓦尼亚这个罗马尼亚中部充满童话故事色彩的区域。特兰西瓦尼亚地区多山多雾,所以被很多作家用来创作小说,最有名的当属爱尔兰作家布莱姆·斯托克笔下的吸血鬼德古拉。传说中的这个德古拉伯爵的原型当年住在罗马尼亚的特兰西瓦尼亚地区。今天我要带你们去的这个锡吉索拉就是德古拉先生的故乡,这座中世纪小城真的就像德古拉伯爵故事里一样,神秘又美丽。
