看鹿趣!Oh Deer!

冬天沒經過秋天的同意,已經開始入境都柏林了,冰冷的空氣和冷風毫不保留地滲進屋裡和我們的骨頭裡,這麼冷的天氣待在家雖然舒服,但是漫步在溫暖的陽光底下也很幸福,所以這個星期日我們決定出去走走、活動一下筋骨。

Winter has been knocking on Dublin’s door without Autumn’s consent. Unapologetically, cold wind and chilly air are finding their way into our home and bones. It is cozy and nice to just stay home but walking under the sunlight would be a blessing, too. So me and my husband decided to stretch our limbs and did a bit of walking this Sunday.

 

這個週末我們去了歐洲最大的、有圍牆的都市公園之一:都柏林鳳凰公園。我們在下午兩點左右出門,搭了城市裡的輕軌 Luas 紅線,從我們這裡的愛彼街,一路坐到休士頓站,然後剩下的路程就是靠我們的雙腳。

This weekend me and my husband went to one of Europe’s largest walled city parks, the Phoenix Park. We left home around 2 in the afternoon and headed for Luas, traveling from the Abbey street stop all the way to Hueston stop and continued our journey from there by foot.

這個公園占地非常廣、景色很美,如果你生活在都柏林,這裡就是感受四季變化最完美的地方。

This park is so huge and very beautiful. It is one of the best places to enjoy the changing seasons in Dublin.

鳳凰公園 | Phoenix Park

我們來這個公園最終目標就是看遠近馳名的野生鹿,本來以為我們只能從遠處眺望,沒想到後來遇到了一大群鹿。鳳凰公園本身也很美麗,一開始你會看到遼闊的草原,接著你會走進蜿蜒、帶點神祕感的小徑,公園的東邊還有好多條看似無止盡的林蔭大道和各式各樣的樹。

Initially we just wanted a glimpse of the famous wild deer in the park and we ended up meeting a great bunch of them. The park itself is absolutely gorgeous. Walking in the park, you’d first be greeted by its vast grasslands and then the many and wondrous meanderings. The east side of the park boasts long and seemingly infinite tree-lined avenues and trees of all sorts.

也因為這個公園太大,出發前我還特地查了比較容易看到鹿的地點,大家說鹿很常出現在教宗十字架附近,在快走到十字架的時候,我們發現一個矮樹林底下有一群鹿,或坐或站,有的還悠閒地走來走去,這些鹿超級溫和,但是有點害羞,你大概可以和牠們保持 2 公尺的距離,牠們也不會跑掉,但是你的動作一定要輕、聲音要小。能親眼目睹野生的鹿在公園裡面漫遊真的很酷欸~沒想到可以看到這麼多隻,這些野鹿好溫馴,非常親人,還有人跟牠們自拍。

The park is vast so I researched the best place to spot deer before we left home and people suggest that Pope’s cross is where you see them the most. As we were approaching Pope’s cross we saw a bunch of them, standing, resting, lingering around a little grove. The deer were so gentle and shy. You can keep some 2 meters distance from them without alerting them however you should be quite and move slowly around them. It was such a wonderful thing seeing these wild deer roaming in the park. I didn’t think that we could see so many of them, let along being so close. They are so tender and sweet-tempered some people even took pictures with them with their faces right next to the deer.

看到鹿就已經很開心了,竟然還這麼近距離,這一天的美好並沒有就此結束,天氣本來很冷、風很大,遇到鹿群後,我們遇到了暖陽!本來太陽還被厚厚的雲層遮住,結果走到教宗十字架附近的時候,太陽開始探出頭來,把我們烘地好舒服、好令人放鬆。也因為天氣暖和了起來,我們決定繼續走到公園裡面的一家咖啡廳-鳳凰咖啡廳,坐下來喝杯咖啡。

I was already more than blissful to see the deer in person and up close. However this fantastic day didn’t just ended here. It was cold and windy, luckily there was no rain. After encountering the deer, we encountered gentle and warm sunlight. The sun was hiding behind some fat clouds, and yet as we walked passed by the Pope’s cross, it began to shine through and lent warmth to us. It made us feel so warm and relaxed. Encouraged by the warmth, we decided to keep walking and head for the Cafe in the park, the Phoenix cafe, and stop for a cup of coffee.

我忘了拍咖啡廳了,不過就是一個小小的、蠻溫馨的餐廳,重點是他們的甜點超多,哈哈哈~天氣很冷,再加上我們看完鹿心情很好,所以我們決定就點些熱食、甜點和飲品,在二樓找了個好座位,坐下來好好享受。我點了一杯抹茶拿鐵,超級好喝的~我是這幾年才學會欣賞抹茶的,現在很喜歡點抹茶類的東西,甜甜苦苦的就是大人口味啊~先生點了檸檬薑茶,我們一起分食了雞肉咖哩飯和鬆脆覆盆子蘋果派。又暖胃又暖心的美食來得真是時候。每口抹茶都喝得我暖暖的,這個小出遊的每一刻都讓人感覺幸福。

I forgot to take some pictures when we arrived but it is a little cozy cafe with many, many choices of amazing desserts! Hahaha. We were cold and having a good day so we decided to order some food, desserts and something hot and warm to drink. We found a good spot at the first floor and enjoyed our food. I ordered a cup of Matcha latte and it was so good. Matcha, a flavor I learned to appreciate only in recent years, has become one of my favorite go to flavor. It is a bitter-sweet grown up flavor all right. My husband ordered a lemon ginger tea and we shared a chicken curry with rice and a slice of apple and raspberry crumbles. It was such a treat and warmth that came in time. Every sip of the warm Matcha latte soothed my bosom and every moment of this little trip made me feel content.

我們吃飽喝足後就啟程回家了,回家的路上天南地北地聊,也決定冬天開始下雪時,要再來鳳凰公園看不同的景色,到時候一定會很冷,但是雪景搭配上一望無際的草原和野鹿,光想像就很美。

We finished our food, desserts and drinks joyfully and then walked back home. On our way back we talked about all kinds of things and we made a deal to come back here again when it begins to snow. It would be cold, for sure, but the scenery will definitely be beautiful with its vast and open grasslands and wild deer.

 

It’s a wonderful day. We saw some deer, ate something nice, walked and talked a lot!

好棒的一天,看了鹿、吃了美食、聊了天、走了很多路!

回家的路上先生還發現一隻鴕鳥,超可愛的哈哈。

On our way back home my husband found an ostrich on the street. So cute!
