My Chick-y Footprints

Road Trip to the North… … (of France)

This was a trip discussed since November last year, with my friend Jonathan Lim, but nothing substantial came out from all those discussions until the week before we left. So on Wednesday 5 of us hopped into our rented car and left for Normandie. It was sort of well-planned even though we planned the journey in just perhaps an hour.

自从去年十一月,我和Jonathan就已经开始讨论这次的旅行,但是没有任何讨论的结果,直到一个礼拜前才略有计划。我们5人礼拜三驾着租来的车,向诺曼底出发。虽然我们只大概花了一个小时,整个行程也计划得算蛮不错的。

It was a good trip with Jon, Zhu Yong, Hu YiLe and Masato. It was cold and windy, but with the sun and all the beautiful places, one can only appreciate and savour the entire ‘package’ =)

和Jon, 朱勇,胡逸乐和Masato的旅程可真很好。寒冷又刮风的三天但又有太阳和美景的陪伴,我们就只能欣赏和体味整个‘配套’。

Our journey: Rouen>>Etretat>>Caen>>Colleville -sur-Mer>>Le Mont Saint Michel>>Saint Malo

It’s going to be a very long post…

看来这篇会很长很长。。。

ROUEN 鲁昂

2013-02-20 11.54.02I find these buildings peculiar and special. They are built with wood and concrete and the walls are not perfectly flat and straight. It gives a quirky character to them.

我觉得这些建筑物异常又特别。它们是用木材和水泥造的,而且墙壁不平坦又稍微倾斜;这倒给它们一种特殊的性格。

 

2013-02-20 13.57.17The place where Joan of Arc was burnt. She is a heroine involved in the Hundred Years’ War between England and France.

That building with a queer exterior is  L’eglise Jeanne d’Arc (Saint-Joan of Arc Church).

这里是圣女贞德被烧死的地方。她在英国和法国百年战争中的一个女英雄。

那座建筑物是圣女贞德教堂。

2013-02-20 14.02.54I was a little surprised by the modern interior of the church. It was until I entered did I find out that it was a church. I’d say it’s the first catholic church I’ve seen which has such different designs, both sides.

踏进这里时,我看见里面的设计感到有点惊讶。还没进来之前,我万万没想到这是建教堂。这是我第一次遇见内外两边的设计那么特别和不同的教堂。

ETRETAT 象鼻山

2013-02-20 16.26.25Etretat is a small town by the coast, known for its cliffs that look like elephant trunks

象鼻山是诺曼底海边的小市镇。
