三月份是去旧金山最好的时间,不会有加州的炎热,也不会有初春的寒冷,而且会看到漂亮的云彩和绿色的山群。因为加州的阳光真的很厉害,所以好多树啊花啊山头啊,都会变得有点蔫儿,如果夏天来这边真的要好好做防晒和保湿,不然初来这边可能会有点不适用哦!
下面就是我在旧金山一天的形成安排~如果不喜欢特别紧凑的旅行安排,可以讲这一天拆成两天来安排^_^

Cable Cart 手动电车

来旧金山,一定一定要至少坐一次World Famous Cable Cart。旧金山的手动电车已经是世界上唯一还在每日运作的手动电车了哦!
总共有以下三条路线:

2017.2.14 Happy Valentine‘s Day!情人节快乐!

2017在时间的跑道上飞速奔驰,一转眼已经是2月份了。

今天情人节收到了一份特别的礼物,不是鲜花,不是烛光晚餐,是一个键盘,一个能够勾起我童年回忆的键盘。想到我还不到5岁时,家里第一台台式计算机,还有老爸噼里啪啦打键盘的声音,想到成长的苦恼和快乐,一晃这一切都过去了,留下的记忆却可以让我哭,可以让我笑。我觉得很开心,也觉得自己非常幸运,心里真的充满感恩:)

美不美?!美!!(自问自答)哈哈哈

晚餐在Banh Mi Che Cali,一个越南餐馆,好吃又不贵。

洛杉矶免费又有趣的活动总结

没有什么比免费的各种室外活动更让人觉得兴奋和开心的了,节省经费的同时,还可以娱乐并且了解当地文化,我个人觉得这是一个很有意义的旅途计划~Let’s start!

  • 免费博物馆日

在我以前的post里面有提到每个月都有各种博物馆提供免费入场的优惠,所以在旅行计划的过程中,可以查看一下日期哦,很多博物馆里面也是很有趣的,我个人很喜欢到艺术和科技博物馆里面!我把我之前总结的网页链接留在这里:http://cloversjournal.com/free-museum-day/

  • 洛杉矶市中心Downtown Art Walk

每个月的第二个星期四,在洛杉矶市中心都会有街头艺术展览活动,街边有吃有喝,灯光闪烁,特别热闹,也非常适合拍照,喜欢热闹和艺术的朋友们可以计划一下哦!这里是他们的官网http://downtownartwalk.org/

  • 格里弗斯公园的星星趴

很多游客来洛杉矶都会到格里弗斯天文台转悠一下,晚上到那里当然是最好的时候,看着闪烁的星空,心都会平静很多。不过在格里菲斯的公园里面,每个月都会有一个观星party,那里有专业的望远镜可以提供个大家观星,我想在国内是没有这样的机会的,所以请一定不要错过呀~我把2017年的星趴列在这里,旅游计划的时候一定要看看哦!http://www.griffithobservatory.org/programs/publictelescopes.html

  • 浪漫吊灯树

房主Adam在自己家门口的大树上放上了很多漂亮的吊灯,刚开始只是将多余的吊灯放在了树上,久而久之挂的吊灯越来越多,也就吸引很多喜欢摄影的人去那里拍照。夜幕降临的时候,Adam还会将所有的吊灯都点亮!所以不论是白天还是夜晚,那里都是一个浪漫的地方哦!自驾的小伙伴儿们,为什么不去stop by一下呢~

地址:2811 W Silver Lake Dr,Los Angeles, CA 90039

  • 爬山去Hollywood标志

洛杉矶山上的好莱坞标志大概是很多游客来这里最希望可以合影的地方了吧。从很多角度都可以远远的看到这个标志,不过要是拍照却是差强人意,因为远观真的太小了吧。那么安排出半天的时间爬到好莱坞标志的身边,不应该是一件很美好很有意义的事情吗~这里是几个爬山的路线图https://www.hikespeak.com/california/la/griffith-park-hollywood-sign-hikes/ 或者也可以用google地图导航,停车在格里菲斯公园里面是免费的哦。一般往返大概3小时左右,记得带上充足的水,涂好防晒霜,戴上帽子再去爬山,洛杉矶的太阳可真不是开玩笑的哦。如果是冬季以外的时间来爬山,尽量早上8点以前开始爬,这样中午最热的时间来临之前就可以结束了!

  • 生日免费游轮

来洛杉矶这边旅游是为了庆祝生日?那还不抓紧时间注册免费游轮到加州旁边的Avalon小岛上享受一下!注册链接在此:http://www.catalinaexpress.com/birthday_promo.html  注册后,官网会立即发邮件到你的注册邮箱,里面会有一些注意事项和免费优惠码。PS,免费的是你自己哦,你的亲朋好友还是要付费滴哦~

Europe trip 2016 Part 1

 

A map about where we went and our transportations.

I just came back from my Europe trip not too long ago (like a month ago -___-).

We rented a car during this trip. We drove from Italy to France, also travelled Greece, Vatican, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and United Kingdom in 25 days. Driving was not as hard as what we heard, except in UK. (HAHA) I was scared sitting at the passenger seat. Cars in UK are different from cars in most of the country. The driver sits on the right side where usually is the passenger seat. And then driving on the left side of the road. My husband, the driver was constantly driving very close to the left side. There were several times I felt like our side mirror should disappeared. Our friends and I was keep making “wow” sound. And most of the time I was screaming. (Sorry that I just can’t help it)  I think that might make my husband even more stressed. Another thing was, almost all of the intersections have roundabout. We had to drive around the circle thing (roundabout) no matter how small or flat that thing was. And remember, drive on the left side!

Personal Favorite Works of March.2016

A little bit late for a March review. But still better than nothing!! haha

I am trying something new since March. Instead of just my girl in the painting, I added more environment for her.

At the same time, I am slowing down my painting speed.

I don’t want to draw or paint just because of I want to be productive. I think quality of painting is very important too.

Put more emotion into my work and learn more new things from each painting.

It was full of joy to painting these girls.

Thank you for bringing me so so much fun.

February artworks and some thoughts :)

Time flies!! February just past.

I looked back all these paintings/drawings. I realize how important to keep practicing everyday. Sometimes I get lazy and just want to chill out the day. Then the next day I will totally feel strange when I pick up my pencil. It doesn’t mean that I have to finish a full painting everyday. But maybe just do some simple sketches on the sketchbook or even on any random paper will be helpful.
