Parisian hidden gem of Magic and Wonder – Tour to 1900’s Mysterious Fairground 时光机带我去19世纪的嘉年华会

Today I take you, my dear Steemit friends to a magical fairground art museum in Paris. Weather you like museums or not, I believe you will enjoy this one.

Musée des Arts Forains (fairground art museum) is a private museum located in an old wine warehouse, Les Pavillons de Bercy. It all started when Jean Paul Favand, an actor and antique dealer, began collecting objects from fairgrounds and the entertainment world. For 40 years now, Jean Paul has been gathering and restoring his curiosities. All those objects boast undeniable aesthetic and cultural qualities, with the luxurious carvings and woodwork. The museum is only open upon reservation at some specific time of the week, beside being a museum, the venue can also be rent for special events.

Have you seen the Woody Allen movie Midnight in Paris? You might remember there was a special scene with the bike carousel. The scene was shot in this museum. I will take you for a ride in the bike carousel too. Let’s go.

今天我要带Steemit的朋友去一个有魔力的地方 – 位于巴黎的嘉年华博物馆。虽然它叫做博物馆,但是人人可以参与其中,而非隔着玻璃窗看展品。所以不管你喜不喜欢博物馆,相信你都会爱上这里,只要有一颗童心。

这是一家私人博物馆,位于巴黎十四区的Bercy地区,曾是旧时的一个红酒仓库。法国演员,古董收藏家 Favand先生是一个古老嘉年华会的狂热爱好者。他收藏这些古董级的蜡像和旋转木马已有40余年。后来他建成了这个博物馆,把这些私人收藏完好的连接成一个个故事,展现在不同的展厅了,让这些属于一两个世纪前的精致艺术品,在今天继续向世人展现曾经的故事和意义。由于是私人博物馆,来这里参观必须要预约,也不是每天都开放。除了博物馆,这里也为有兴趣的人开放场馆租赁,以举办鸡尾酒会之类,想必价格不菲。

记得《午夜巴黎》这部电影吗,有一个派队的场景里有个自行车的旋转木马,就是在这里拍摄的。今天我也会带你们一起去坐一坐这个神奇的旋转木马。

[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。

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。
