Samuel’s first holiday (prima vacanta a lui Samuel)

Published by admin at 11:13 am under Vacante

Well, this was in fact his parents holiday in Nice, on the Cote D’azur. Samuel had already been in a holiday mood long before that, since birth really. This however was different. It involved travelling by plane for the first time ever for Samuel, no more sticking to a ‘regular’ programme (meals, sleep, etc) and a complete change of air and faces. Obviously he went along with his parents everywhere including on a trip by boat to St Tropez and two further local trips by bus to Antibes – Cannes – St Paul de Vince  and  Eze – Monaco- Monte Carlo. Most of the holiday however was spent in Nice,  and Samuel really enjoyed  the city especially the old town.  We liked the old town too with its hundreds of narrow streets, small terraces and restaurants. Samue liked  being taken around  in the push chair along the  shadowy  and cool streets (the weather was very hot) whilst looking at peoples faces, their pets and local shops. We would regularly stop for refreshments to cool us from the hot weather. In Samuel’s case this would involve tasting some of the local fruits and fruit juices. Talking about fruits, this was an experience! Grapes, apricots and pears had  real and natural aromas  and taste. They felt completely different to everything Samuel had tasted before.  Consequently  he could not stop eating fruits and kept asking for more and more and more…

(RO): De fapt asta a fost  vacanta   parintilor lui Samuel  la Nisa, pe Coasta de Azur. Samuel a fost mai mult sau mai putin in vacanta tot timpul de cand s-a nascut. A fost totusi ceva deosebit  pentru Samuel inca de la inceput, de cand s-a urcat pentru prima data in viata lui intr-un avion. A urmat programul relaxat fara ore fixe (pentru mancat, somn etc), complet deosebit de rutina zilnica din UK. In plus a fost vremea total diferita  si fetele oamenilor din Franta. Parintii lui l-au luat peste tot in timpul sejurului inclusiv intr-o calatorie cu vaporul la  St Tropez si doua calatorii cu autocarul la Antibes – Cannes – St Paul de Vince  si  Eze – Monaco- Monte Carlo.

Cea mai mare parte a vacantei am petrecut-o in Nisa, in special in partea veche a orasului. Lui Samuel i-a placut Nisa foarte mult  in special orasul vechi (vielle ville) care e compus din sute de stradute inguste mergind in toate directiile  de multe ori incrucisandu-se fara logica, pline de turisti si presarate cu terase si restaurante. Lui Samuel i-a placut sa fie impins incoace si incolo  prin orasul vechi, admirand  fetele oamenilor si vitrinele butique-urilor. Stradutele inguste si umbrite erau  ideale pentru popasuri frecvente la mese asezate de multe ori direct in strada. In timp ce parintii lui degustau cocktailurile locale Samuel descoperea sucul de fructe si fructele locale (proaspete). Fara nici un dubiu fructele au fost o revelatie pentru micut. Comparat cu UK, strugurii, perele si piersicile aveau gust si aroma naturala, complet diferite fata de ce Samuel degustase in trecut.  Atat de bune erau incat cu greu a putut sa se opreasca din mancat, de multe ori plangand si dorind mai mult si mai mult…

Am atasat cateva fotografii din calatoria la St Tropez si cateva fotografii din Nisa, orasul vechi.

    Micutul Samuel a fost in prima lui vacanta cu parintii lui sa sarbatoreasca de fapt “vingt-ans apres” si au sarbatorit in “style” intr-o vacanta care a devenit locul 1, 2 si 3 in clasamentul vacantelor familiei, urmata strins de Malaysia & New Orleans (cind Samuel er bineinteles doar in visele noastre).
    Never stopped raining since we’ve got back, everywhere you go don’t take the weather with you under any circumstance.
