Paris – Hotel Balmoral

During the trip in Paris, I cooperated with some hotels in order to give reviews of staying as a fashion traveler. This was not my first time to travel in Europe, however, facing to Paris, my heart beat faster.

It was like to meet your lover and at a critical moment you would decide to leave or stay. The Staff leaded me to my room, and when he opened the door, the excitement made me smile with the teeth. (Stay!)

In front of the entrance, you see the living room, on the left side goes to the bedroom, on the right side is the bathroom. In the bedroom, there is a mini walk-in closet. I was so happy and satisfied about my room, no matter the decoration, the design or how comfortable is the bed and pillows.  Especially in the bathroom, two washbasins on the long, chic and clear stone table. The design of lights in the bathroom is just smart and perfect. We women know about how important it is when we makeup.

這次在巴黎停留期間,與幾家旅館合作以時尚旅人的角度來撰寫下榻心得。這不是第一次在歐洲旅行,面對巴黎卻使我的心砰砰然,有種像是與夢中情人共度夜晚時,瞬間決定留下或是離去的關鍵時刻。飯店服務人員領著我上了樓之後,房間門一打開,內心的雀躍又再度讓我咧嘴笑了開來。(留下!)

一進房是乾淨簡單的起居室,左手邊進臥室、右手邊為浴室。臥室裡還有間迷你步入式更衣間,無論在擺設上、設計上或是床墊、枕頭的舒適度上,完全讓我滿意的連睡覺都會笑。尤其是浴室裡,長長的雙座洗手檯面上乾淨寬敞;燈光的設計恰當,讓臉上一點陰影都沒有。這點的重要性女性同胞們都很清楚,聰明的燈光設計讓化妝時無死角沒有色差,可以一整天神彩奕奕。

First night in my room, my body was too tired to stay awake, but my mind insisted no to sleep. I was finally in Paris, and I did not like to use the time for sleeping but something else. I did stretching exercises, read my book, opened the window and stepped to the Balcony; I saw the night lights through the neighbors’ window, looked at the glow from the downtown. The eyes were so sleepy, but I was so stubborn to keep awake till the last second as I could. After to set up an alarm clock for the second-day morning, right away I fell asleep and had no idea about others.

第一晚在房間內,身體已經累得開始抗議,頭腦卻捨不得睡。好不容易到了巴黎,怎麼可以就這樣睡了呢?在床上做伸展操、看看書,把陽台的落地窗打開到外頭呼吸巴黎夜裡的空氣,看看對窗鄰居的夜燈點點,瞧著遠方某處模糊朦朧的光暈,雙眼已經都快闔上,自己卻倔將地撐到最後一秒。勉強替隔天設定好鬧鐘,轟地一聲,我已全然進入夢鄉,不知人事。

My sleep was so short and had fewer hours than usual. My eyes could not open yet. However, my heart woke up and jumped up from the comfortable bed when the alarm clock rang. Before I started to fix myself in the bathroom, I put on a bathrobe and tried to cover my sleepy face. Opened the window of my balcony, said Good Morning to this city. I had to pinch myself to make sure that everything was true and not a dream at home. Paris is a city that you need to perceive it slowly and silently. Not only the gorgeous enchantment, but also the inner aplomb.

好短好少的幾小時睡眠時間,雙眼還睜不開,心在鬧鈴響起瞬間已從床褥間跳了起來。還來不及進洗手間,披上浴袍害羞遮著睡眼惺忪的臉,打開陽台落地窗迫不及待向這座城市道早安,捏捏自己就怕其實在家裡做著大頭夢,還滴著口水呢。巴黎這座城市,必須靜下來好好品味、體驗,不僅是那些外在可見的風華之魅,也是那往內的探索,寂靜之下的沈著美。
