#Travel with me: Cannes

RO  ” Lumea e o carte, iar cei care nu calatoresc, citesc doar o singura pagina! “- St. Augustin

Acum cateva saptamani o draga cititoare, imi scria ca i-ar face placere sa gaseasca pe blog sugestii despre locuri de vizitat. Asadar am decis sa impartasesc cu voi, mica escapada Cannes- Monaco. Cannes e celebru in toata lumea pentru festivalul filmului care strange in fiecare an mari actori si nume importante din lumea spectacolului. Cu toate acestea, cladirea Palais de Festival, nu spune prea multe vazuta de afara. In schimb, Cannes are un farmec aparte datorat faptului ca se intinde de-a lungul marii. Bulevardul La Croisette ofera o panoramica aproape hollywoodiana, cu o multime de hoteluri luxoase si cladiri impunatoare pe de o parte, iar pe de cealalta cu plaje aurii si o mare turcoaz. E de notat si portul (Vieux Port), unde numeroasele yacht-uri se intrec in grandoare. Pentru cei care adora shopping-ul, va puteti lasa “furati” de boutique-urile exclusive ale marilor designeri . Rue D’ Antibes este o alta paralela a bulevardului La Croisette, care gazduieste lanturi de magazine internationale mai accesibile, dar si marci franceze.

Orasul este imaginar impartit in doua regiuni: partea noua care se desfasoara de-a lungul marii si orasul vechi, asa-zisa Le Suquet, un joc de stradute urci-cobori pietruite, romantice in felul lor, cu un tipic provenzal.

“The world is a book and those who do not travel, read only one page” – St. Augustin

A few weeks ago a dear reader wrote she would love to find some blog suggestions about places to visit. So I decided to share with you, our little escapade Cannes- Monaco. Cannes is famous worldwide for the film festival that gathers every year great actors and important names in show business. However, the building Palais de Festival, does not say much seen outside. Instead, Cannes has a special charm due to the fact that stretches along the coast. La Croisette Boulevard offers a panoramic view, so “Hollywood-istic”, with plenty of luxury hotels and stately buildings on the one hand, and on the other with golden beaches and turquoise sea. It should be noted too, the port (Vieux Port), where numerous yachts compete in grandeur. For those who love shopping, you could be “stolen” by the exclusive boutiques of major designers. Rue D’Antibes is another parallel to La Croisette boulevard, which houses more affordable international chains and French brands.

Imaginary, the city is divided into two parts: the new part which runs along the sea and the old town, the so-called Le Suquet, a climb-down game cobblestone streets, romantic in their own way, with a typical Provenzal.

Si acum, destul cu ghidul turistic! 😀 Cateva tips-uri personale, care pot face dintr-o vacanta intr-un loc pretentios, una traita frumos. 

1. Booking.com

Sunt si suntem tot mai atrasi de frumos si exclusiv, chiar si in alegerea hotelului. Cu totii ne dorim confort si conditii bune, ca doar suntem in vacanta, iar amintirea unei sederi placute poate sa ne faca doar placere. TOTUSI, daca vreti sa vizitati, sa va bucurati de ceea ce un loc ofera, sa explorati, sa cunoasteti, sfatul meu este sa NU rezervati intr-o locatie 5 stele. Un astfel de hotel pune la dispozitie atat de mult comfort si relax, incat te face sa nu iti mai doresti sa iesi din camera. Plus ca, la ce ti-ai mai dori sa te ridici din pat, cand vederea de la balcon este maxima spre mare?! Booking.com este un site care te super ajuta in alegerea hotelului, e suficient sa introduci numele viitoarei destinatii, iar pagina de search indata iti arata tot ce e disponibil. Un plus de care poti profita sunt structurile din localitatile invecinate (adica Antibes si Juan-Les-Pins, unde preturile la cazare sunt injumatatite), fara a te lipsi insa de vederea spre mare sau de gentiletea personalului.

Now, enough with the touristic guide! : D Some personal tips that can make a vacation in a pretentious place, one lived beautiful.

1. Booking.com 

We are more attracted to beautiful and exclusive, even in choosing a hotel. We all want comfort and good conditions, just as we are on vacation, and the memory of a pleasant stay can only make us happy. However, if you want to visit, to enjoy what the place gives, to explore, to know, my advice is do not book a 5-star location. One such hotel offers comfort and relaxation so much, that you might not want to leave the room. Plus, why would you get out of bed when the view from the balcony is full to a stuning sea ?! 😀 Booking.com is a site that helps you in choosing hotels, it is enough to enter the name of the future destinations and the search page immediately shows you every available room, apartment or suite. An additional advantage you might consider are the structures of neighboring localities (ie Antibes and Juan-Les-Pins, where housing prices are halved) without missing you by the sea view or by staff kindness.

2. Start it in the right way

S-ar prea putea ca entuziasmul de a vizita un loc nou sa iti inunde fiecare celula a corpului. Euforia si curiozitatea nu tin locul nutrientilor, asa ca micul dejun à la carte e cu atat mai indicat. Sunt atat de multe de vazut si de facut, incat doza matinala de vitamine e menita sa dea suficienta energie, avand in vedere ca ziua e lunga. Don’t miss it!

2. Start it in the right way

Would be that much enthusiasm to visit a new place to flood every cell of your body. The euphoria and curiosity won’t take nutrients place, so à la carte breakfast is even better. There are so many things to see and do, that a morning dose of vitamins is meant to give enough energy, given that the day is long. Don’t miss it!

3. Tema de casa: butonul Google Search

Orice destinatie ai alege, sunt peste tot lucruri interesante si puncte importante de vizitat. Nu te porni la drum fara sa dai un google search care suna cam asa: “10 lucruri de vazut in…..” Vei fi surprinsa sa afli de pe alte bloguri si site-uri cate puncte istorice sau mai putin ar trebui sa vizitezi. Dap, suna a tema de casa! 😉

EN

3. Homework: Google Search button

Wherever you choose to go, there are interesting things and important points to visit everywhere. Do not hit the road without hitting a google search that sounds like this: “10 things to see in …..” You will be surprised to learn from other blogs and sites, how many historical or less points you should visit. Yep, sounds like a homework! 😉

4. Walk…this way…that way….just walk!

Oricat de stylish ai vrea sa arati, oricat de mult a-i tine la imaginea ta, nu ai cum sa rezisti o zi intreaga pe niste tocuri 15 cm si sa pretinzi ca vrei sa vezi! Dintr-un taxi in altul, cu masina la dispozitie sau pur si simplu, pe jos, ai oricum nevoie de o pereche de talpi joase care sa iti permita sa ramai comoda pe perioada intregii zile. So, get your flats on and walk…keep walking….all day long!

4. Walk…this way…that way….just walk!

No matter how stylish you want to look, no matter how much you are concerned about imagine, you can not resist a full day on some 15 cm heels and pretend that you want to visit! From a taxi in another, with an available car or simply on foot, you still need a pair of flat soles that allow you to stay comfortable during the day. So, get your flats on and walk … keep walking …. all day long!

5. Thousands and thousands of pictures

Am uitat aproape de tot sa postez perioada cat am stat acolo…de fapt e o nebunie sa stai conectat la telefon cand in jurul tau e atata viata, miscare si frumusete. Am facut insa o gramada de poze, o parte le vedeti aici, celelalte pe facebook. Sunt toate amintiri, care revazute intr-o seara ploioasa pe divan, incalzesc putin sufletul cu soarele acelor zile. ❤ Get some lovely pictures! 😀

5. Thousands and thousands of pictures

I  almost forgot to post as long as I was there … actually it’s crazy to stay connected to your phone when around you there  is so much life, movement and beauty. But I took lots of pictures, some you see here, the other on Facebook. Are all memories, which reviewed on a rainy evening on the sofa, it can warm the soul with those sunny days. ❤ Get Some lovely pictures! : D

6. Take your time

11150614_10153177074152808_8308080506985501163_n

Nu e vorba despre a avea timp, ci despre a-ti face timp. Gasim timp pentru multe lucruri inutile, mai putin pentru noi. E un lucru intangibil, de care avem atata nevoie insa. Trece aprig si nemilos pe langa noi. De cand am ajuns acolo a inceput un fel de numaratoare inversa, o goana incredibila ca sa apucam sa vedem cat mai mult. La un moment dat am oftat ca si un copil razgaiat: “vreau sa ma opresc!” Simteam nevoia sa-mi trag sufletul. Era locul perfect, in spatele unui perete verde unde turistii evitau sa se aseze din cauza lipsei de vedere spre mare. Cu 5 ore mai devreme, luasem pranzul la cativa metri de mare, cu picioarele in nisipul inca nears de soarele estiv. Chiar simteam nevoia sa ma opresc. Am ramas tacuti pret de cateva minute, in timp ce sorbeam dintr-o cafea mult prea frantuzeasca…. Am multumit in gand pentru ziua minunata de care aveam parte. Nu-mi amintesc sa fi avut parte de un 13 aprilie atat de frumos, in toate sensurile, cu o vreme atat de prielnica.

6. Take your time 

It’s not about having time, but about making your time. We find a lot of time for unnecessary things, except for us. It is intangible, but we desperately need. It passes fierce and ruthless beside us. Since we got there it began a kind of countdown, an incredible rush to get to see as much as possible. At one point I sighed like a spoiled rotten brat child: “I want to stop!” I needed to rest my soul. It was the perfect place, behind a green wall where tourists avoided to settle due to the lack of sea view. 5 hours earlier, we were taking lunch a few meters away from the sea, with the feet in the sand still summer sun nears. I remained silent for several minutes, while sipping from a very French coffee…. I silently thanked for the wonderful day we were enjoining. I do not remember to have had an 13th April so beautiful, in every sense, with a lovely weather.

7. Nu uita ca esti in vacanta…

Atmosfera de seara este una magica in Cannes. Turistii, localnicii, se plimba pe La Croisette, de-a lungul marii. E unul dintre cele mai frumoase bulevarde din lume. De fapt, asta este si motivul pentru care am ales Cannes in locul unei alte destinatii. Cineva, cu timp in urma, imi spunea ca ar fi unul dintre cele mai frumoase orase din lume. M-a facut atat de curioasa incat am vrut sa bifez destinatia pe lista.

7. Do not forget that you’re on vacation …

The atmosphere is a magical one during evening in Cannes.Tourists, locals stroll on La Croisette, along the sea. It’s one of the most beautiful avenues in the world. In fact, that is why we have chosen Cannes instead of other destinations. Someone, time ago, told me that it would be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It made me so curious that I wanted to check it on the <places to see> list.

Dupa cina, m-am asezat pe o bancuta, langa mare. As fi ramas acolo pana dimineata daca era cu putinta. Briza marii imi racorea fata si umerii dezgoliti. Imi propusem de acasa sa nu dorm. Mi se parea o enorma pierdere de timp dormitul. Dar oboseala imi invaluia ochii. Trezitul mult prea dimineata se simtea acum, la sfarsit de zi. Asa ca ne-am indreptat cu pasi lenti spre hotel. Dimineata, abia trezita, mi-am dat seama ca e important sa ne odihnim chiar daca suntem in vacanta, ca sa ne putem bucura de ceea ce traim. Get your beauty sleep, ladies! :p

EN

After dinner, I set on a bench close by the sea. I would have stayed there until morning if possible. The sea breeze was cooling my face and bare shoulders. I proposed myself to not sleep before I was leaving. I felt an enormous waste of time sleeping. But I enshrouded eye fatigue. Waking up early in the morning was hardly feeling at the end of the day. So we went with slow steps to the hotel. In the morning, barely awakened, I realized it was important to rest even if we are on vacation, so we can enjoy what we live. Get your beauty sleep, ladies, no matter where you are! : P

8. Trebuie sa ajungi…..

Daca nu pentru cina, macar pentru un brunch rapid, trebuie sa ajungi la Hotelul Carlton. Una dintre cele mai impunatoare cladiri de pe La Croisette, demna de admirat pentru arhitectura in stil liberty, e numit si “hotelul celebritatilor” datorita actorilor importanti care se cazeaza acolo pe perioada festivalului filmului. That’s so fancy! :))))

EN

8. You shoud get there too…

If not for dinner, at least for a quick brunch, you must get to the Carlton. One of the most impressive buildings on La Croisette, admirable for liberty style architecture, is called “celebrity hotel” because important actors who stay there during the festival film. That’s so fancy! :))))

Confirm! 😀 Cannes este extraordinar de frumos, atat de chic, o perla a Rivierei Franceze! Daca nu ai auzi frantuzisme la tot pasul, anumite zone te-ar face sa crezi ca nu esti in Europa, aduc pur si simplu a Hollywood! Nu e doar modern, are un farmec aparte! Inspira buna dispozitie, te face sa vrei sa vezi mai mult. Palmierii strajuiesc 2000 de trandafiri care isi impart culorile spre mare. O mare de un albastru calm, cu plaje aurii care asteapta o vara plina. N-as vrea sa stiu  cum arata in luna august, dar in aprilie sunt perfecte pentru ochii iscoditori si soarele caldut.

Ai avut vreodata Cannes pe lista locurilor de vizitat? Sau… ti-am starnit cat de putin interesul ca sa il adaugi printre punctele de bifat?

Love & kisses, 

Maria

I confirm! Cannes is extraordinarily beautiful, so chic, a pearl of the French Riviera! If you would not hear french speaking everywhere, some areas would make you think you’re not in Europe, simply bring Hollywood! It’s not just modern, it has charm! It inspires good mood, makes you want to see more. Lots of palm trees guard over 2000 roses who share its colors and fragrances above the sea. A calm blue sea with golden beaches awaiting a full summer. I wouldn’t like to know how it looks in August, but in April are simply perfect for warm sun and prying eyes.

Have you ever had Cannes on the list of places to visit? Or … I’ve aroused interest as little as one to add points ticked?

Love & kisses,

Maria

  1. Uau esti norocoasa, totul e minunat! Imi place foarte mult cum te-ai imbracat la Cannes!
    Te integrezi perfect cu locurile astea minunate!

  2. Cat imi plac articolele de genul asta, pentru moment ma transpun si sunt acolo cu tine, in superbul Cannes si grandiosul Monaco. Ei bine, draga mea, tin sa iti spun ca esti foarte frumoasa si te integrezi atat de bine in peisajele astea minunate. Te pup.
    Imi place gentuta ta ;). Poate imi sugerezi un site de unde o pot comanda si eu :*.

  3. Draga mea Maria,
    Pentru inceput doresc sa te felicit pentru postarea ta “Travel whit me…”. Ma bucur enorm sa citesc experienta ta la Cannes si pe acesta cale doresc sa iti multumesc ca o impartsesti in spatiul virtual. Pozele tale sunt superbe si prin ele am retrait cele mai frumoase amintiri de la Cannes, Nice – Franta .
    Eu am vizitat acesta regiune in luna August 2012 si am avut parte de temperaturi ridicate, chiar foarte ridicate 🙂 dar nu m-am oprit si am colindat fiecare straduta in parte. Cum ai spus si tu, este pacat sa te închizi intr-un hotel… Un loc fabulos, un loc de meditatie, de relaxare, de refacere totala. Serile “pierdute” pe plaja, te fac sa uiti de rutina cotidiana si iti incarci bateria la maxim! Parca ai vrea ca acel moment sa nu se termine niciodata…. Never, Never, Never…
    Probabil multi se feresc sa viziteze aceste locuri, considerând o zona fitze si automat preturi exagerate, dar daca stii sa te organizezi un pic iese cat costul oricarei vacante la mare, asta daca nu faci shopping :))) .Acolo, magazinele exclusiviste iti ofera o colectie unicat care te atrag ca un magnet si cu preturi pe masura .
    La cat mai multe calatorii Maria, sa te bucuri de fiecare loc pe care il vizitezi si sa ramai cu cele mai frumoase amintiri. Mult succes pe mai departe. Felicitari!

    • Multumesc, Cris! Sa stii ca m-am gandit la tine cand am scris articolul, dar chiar nu stiam ca ai fost si tu acolo! E superb! As fi vrut sa nu ma mai intorc acasa, desi traiesc si aici intr-o zona super- frumoasa si panoramica! In Nice nu am pus piciorul, m-am multumit sa vad Antibes, Juan-les-Pins, Cannes si Monaco. Imi doresc sa ma reintorc in Monaco, caci a fost destul de grabita ziua acolo. E o zona de fitze oricum si fara sa faci shopping exclusivist se duc o gramada de bani. Dar cum zici tu, daca te organizezi, se poate! Chiar m-a bucurat mesajul tau, e semn ca ma urmaresti in continuare, desi prezenta mea pe blog s-a rarit…. :/ te pup, sa ai o zi minunata!
