LA CITÉ MÉDIÉVALE DE CARCASSONNE [2]

At first I wanted to post my spring days with bunches of blossom pictures, but finally I decided to take you back to this beautiful and magical place Carcassonne Medieval Site. 

It’s spring time – a sunny, warm weather. A very good time to take a little walk, I’m showing you the other side of this place. 

Maybe these pictures above don’t give you any special sensation, that’s why I suggest you visiting this place to feel its magic in real. I’m sure that you’ll be enchanted by this place, and makes you want to come back again.

WINTER MAGIC


Oh my it’s been a while since my last post. So first of all, I’d like to say a very happy new year to you [yes I know it’s late, my bad]. How’s your new year so far?. 

Anyway, our winter has been so much fun than ever!. 

As we live in a city which has [almost] 0 probability of snowing, so we’re becoming a snow hunter at this moment haha. Yup. It’s true. No joke. Really. 

It’s really fun though. Looking for a [not too far from our city] snowing place, driving, walking, finding and admiring the snow. 

Nature gives us so many beauties out there. I really appreciate and feel so grateful about it. And yes, we’re going to do this snow hunting thingy until the end of winter. Seriously. It’s funnnnn.

LAST WEEKEND.

These are photos from last weekend. 

We spent our time at Roscoff, Pleyben, and St. Pol De Leon – Finistère, Bretagne. Some people said living in Bretagne is not very interesting, why?. It’s because of the weather. They said the sun shines not more than 3 months in a year. Mostly will be cloudy and rainy days. So it’s a sadness.

O’well, may be this region doesn’t have a friendly weather as they said. But this region has so many beautiful places to be visited!. Beautiful typical breton’s home architectures, churches, castles, and crêperies are everywhere!. You must try their speciality crepes, it’s so delicious and different. They also have their own famous local soft drink, it’s called Breizh Cola and we love it!.

So if you want to visit Bretagne, please don’t be bothered with the weather. Because you will always find a lot of beauties in there. Just enjoy it!.

ANNECY.

Annecy, one of the most beautiful city in Haute Savoie area. It’s been known by its old town and lake. And yes, I love this city so so much. We arrived there around 8 am [it’s very very early]. The restaurants and shops were not open yet, and of course not so many tourists too!. Tant mieux!.

We strolled along the old town until the lake of Annecy. I enjoyed every single time that we spent. Too much huh?. 

At the end of our visit, we wanted to rent a boat to explore the lake, but unfortunately they were not available yet – we came too earlyyyy remember??. Not sure at what time they’re available though. Nevermind, because we’ll be back!. Yihaaa!.

L’ETANG DU DOUL – PEYRIAC DE MER.

I always love when we’re accidentally lost and ended up with finding an interesting new place to be visited. 

This is Lake Doul in Peyriac de Mer – Aude. I love the wood bridges that will take you from the lake to the hills. They’re very photogenic teehee. But unfortunately we’re not able to go until the top of the hill because petit monsieur dislike the insects around it. So we turned back. But I saw a group of tourist who would do a trekking. I guess the distance to reach the top of the hill is quite long. Don’t worry the hill’s road is not a difficult one, even petit monsieur could walk easily – but keep prudent always.

SEKILAS INFO PERANCIS.

Sudah beberapa hari ini organisasi sindikat pekerja di Perancis melakukan aksi demonstrasi menolak RUU Pekerja. 

Dari beberapa aksi demonstrasi yang saya tahu, demo kali ini termasuk yang paling lama dan agak mengkhawatirkan. Kenapa?. Soalnya supaya pemerintah mau mendengarkan dan membatalkan RUU, para demonstran dengan sengaja menutup akses kilang minyak, yang menyebabkan  beberapa stasiun bensin kosong bahan bakar, dan tentunya antrean panjang para pengendara karena takut tidak kebagian bensin. 

Beberapa stasiun bensin karena stok terbatas, ada yang menerapkan pembelian maksimum 30€. Ada juga beberapa pengendara yang sampai “lari” ke negara tetangga supaya bisa isi bensin sepenuh-penuhnya. Ada yang panik, ada yang marah, ada juga yang maklum dan ikut mendukung para demonstran.

Berasa gak kaya di Perancis deh pas lagi lihat liputan beritanya di TV. Kok bisa Perancis jadi seperti ini?.

Selama hampir 5 tahun saya tinggal di negara ini, baru kali ini saya melihat antrean panjang kendaraan di pom bensin. Monsieur dan saya yang tadinya cuek-cuek aja, jadi ikutan ngantri bensin juga deh. Jaga-jaga aja, soalnya kata para demonstran mereka tidak akan berhenti sampai mereka “menang”. Bahkan mereka berniat melakukan aksi demonstrasi yang lebih besar lagi tanggal 14 Juni mendatang. Jadi kalau ada yang mau berkunjung ke kota-kota besar di Perancis [terutama Paris], musti rajin cari-cari info tentang situasi dan kondisi di kota yang mau dikunjungi. Daripada nanti udah sampai di kota tujuan gak bisa ke mana-mana kan sayang.

Serius yaa, saya sampai takjub sama dampak demonstrasi kali ini. Para demonstran seolah-olah [atau memang udah punya niat] ingin memati surikan negara ini dengan harapan pemerintah mau mengalah demi rakyat. 

Tapi sayangnya sampai saat ini pemerintahnya masih keukeuh mau mempertahankan RUU. Kalau gak ada yang mau ngalah gini kaya’nya bakalan ribet deh urusan…

Demikianlah sekilas info dari saya, selamat berakhir pekannn.
