"A piece of Bristol"
Couple of weeks before, I was off to Bristol for 2 days, fair enough as a short break, isn't? General speaking, I was surprised by this seaside city. Despite the warm - welcoming residents, there are quite couple of well-established museums that amused me in this medium-sized city.
“M shield” and “Bristol Museum and Art Gallery” are two of my favorite among all of them. M shield was a historical wharf and now a museum that tells about the history of Bristol itself. Literally, I am not a super fan of history, but the amazing interactive props were a great way to present the “boring” history. That was the longest time that I had ever stayed in a history museum lol. Getting tired after the visitation of the museum? A cozy café with outdoor seats is waiting for you. Can you imagine how relax you could be, if you would have a coffee facing a beautiful harbor…OMG, that’s life! (Sorry, my Asian background again! I am totally obsessed with the enjoyable life style here x)
“Bristol Museum and Art Gallery” is another gem in Bristol. This antique museum has quite a wide range of galleries, from the wild life, world history to art and design. Personally, I do enjoy the art gallery sections. Why? Because on the day that I had visited, there was an exhibition – Jeremy Deller: English Magic. This Turner Prize winning artist’s pieces were wicked! I was completely out of breath when I looked at the wall - sized paintings! Please do look at the painting strokes of his pieces; you would definitely feel the same as mine. The exhibition lasts from 12 April – 21 September 2014. Come on! Fashion and design lovers, it is definitely worth to pay a visit.
After spending 2 days in Bristol, I completely understand why Bristol is selected to be one of the best cities to live in the UK.
Stay tuned! More about Bristol will be posted. xx
數星期前到了倫敦西面的沿海城市 － Bristol 作個短途旅行，待在倫敦太久，也有想出走的念頭啊！（在港的朋友，可不要打我啊~~）個人十分喜愛這個面積不大的城市，為什麼？除了當地熱情的居民、那些可以雙腿直達的壯麗自然景觀外，還因為那裡有數個欣賞度極高的博物館。
Bristol眾多博物館中，個人特別鍾情於 “M Shield” 及 “Bristol Museum & Art Gallery”。“M Shield”的前身是一個歷史悠久的船艙碼頭，現則成了講述Bristol自身歷史文化的博物館。雖然我從不是一個歷史迷，但 “M Shield”內那些互動感十足的道具，造就我逗留在歷史博物館最長的一個記錄！行累了還有一間十分舒適的café，坐在兔子耳朵形狀的椅子，喝著咖啡，面對仿佛刻上”舒適”2字的碼頭，不禁回想，人生追求的不就是如此嗎？（對不起，生活只有追趕跑跳的香港人通病發作了⋯⋯）
“Bristol Museum & Art Gallery”是Bristol 另一瑰寶，這個古堡般建築的博物館有著不同類型的展品，從自然生態、世界歷史到藝術與設計都應有盡有，正因如此，“Bristol Museum & Art Gallery”十分受家庭歡迎。到訪當天，館中有一個吸引眼球度爆燈的展覽 － Jeremy Deller: English Magic，這個Turner Award得主的作品，有著令人窒息的本質。尤其是當中幾幅大如牆壁般的作品，看著他的筆觸，真心佩服這藝術家！這展覽從現在開放至2014年9月21日，喜歡設計與時裝的人，絕對不容錯過這個展覽，更何況是免費入場，沒有不去的籍口吧。
Bristol待續 ; )
