Trip to the receding Morteratsch Glacier in the Swiss Alps 终将消失的冰川

Li ( @liflorence) mentioned on her post our adventure of visiting the receding Morteratsch Glacier. Living in a relatively cold country, I was not really that concerned about the global warming. However this trip was educational and it raised fully experiential awareness of this major climate change.

The Morteratsch Glacier is the largest glacier in the Mt. Bernina group, yet with an annual retreat rate of around 17 meter per year. It is sad to see the glacier has been receding several miles during the last hundred years.

Li在她最近的帖子里面也提到了日渐融化的Morteratsch冰川。我住在一个比较冷的国家,其实并不太能感受到全球变暖,不过这次游冰川让我觉得这真是个严重的问题。Morteratsch冰川是阿尔卑斯伯尔尼那山区最大的冰川,但是这座伟大的冰川正在以每年超过17米的速度融合,最近的一百年,已经倒退了好几英尺。

Scenic Swiss train ride to Lake St. Moritz

Hello, Steemit friends, a few days no see. How are you guys? I’m having a great time in Switzerland with @liflorence. We went hiking in different mountain areas. It brings back all my memories of Switzerland from 5 years ago when I did my first Euro-trip, the scenic train ride, glaciers, lovely street, friendly Swiss people. And most importantly, the accompany of Li. I can talk the whole day long about her, about our travel plan, hometown, common hobbies, etc.

有几天没来Steemit了,因为跟Li玩得在瑞士很开心,经常聊到忘了时间。这几天,我们去了不同的山区登山看风景。让我会想去5年前一个人进行的欧洲旅行。 当时就被瑞士的田园牧歌所感动,而这次的旅行除了再一次体验了穿越瑞士的景观火车,看了冰川,感受瑞士的金秋时节。更重要的是有了Li的陪伴,Li知道很多瑞士的文化,跟我讲了很多。我们情投意合,可以一直不停的聊天。

Hotpot dinner at @liflorence’s house in Thalwil, Switzerland. 去瑞士找Li吃火锅

The other day we discussed in @laodr about meetup with friends we meet online. Today I met @liflorence, finally here in Zurich. We’ve never met before but we were talking since long time ago when we were planning to move to Europe. It’s been so long already.

Li is super nice, she gave me a warm welcome in Zurich station. I felt so refreshed after a long journey. It feels a bit unreal to meet her in person. I think it’s been 5 years since last time when I was in Zurich. Nothing much has changed here. Now it is around Octoberfest time so there are some special decorations for it.

之前有一天我们在老道茶馆讨论了见网友的话题。今天我终于在苏黎世遇到了@liflorence。说来神奇,我们在很久以前就通过豆瓣网的一个小组认识,后来搬到欧洲的时候,照理说是离得近了,但是一直没能碰巧找到时间见面,这次总算见了。

在苏黎世车站Li呼喊我,给了我热烈的欢迎。经过漫长的旅程,我感到很感动,也忽然感觉有点不现实。自从上次在苏黎世以来已经5年了,那时还是刚来比利时的时候,当时人人说瑞士好,我也觉得去看看,当年也没想要到处旅游,就是看大家都喜欢瑞士就去了,当时觉得印象不错。时隔五年,苏黎世火车站真是一模一样,最近是德国火爆的啤酒节,所以有一些特殊的挂饰。
