What to Wear in the Netherlands in April? 

四月荷蘭天氣後母心!衣服怎麼穿才能討好後母?

 

Travel Period: March 31 – April 9, 2018

旅行時間:2018/3/31 – 2018/4/9

 

As an interesting Taiwanese saying goes, “Spring is like the heart of a step mother,” which actually means the weather in spring is always changing.

正如一個有趣的台灣諺語所說 : 「春天後母心。」言下之意即為春天天氣變化莫測。

 

This also works for the Netherlands, but the “step-mother” is much more unstable than the one in Taiwan!

這句話在荷蘭也適用,但那裡的「後母」真他奶奶的比台灣的這位還難搞啊!

 

While we were in the country, the temperature ranged from 0 to 22 degrees (Celsius), and sometimes, the rain was on and off with sudden strong wind.

當我們在荷蘭時,溫度從攝氏 0 度到 22 度都有,而且有時還有斷斷續續的雨,配上突如其來的強風。

 

If you don’t want the weather to ruin your vacation mood, be sure to take a look at the following 4 tips.

如果你不想要讓天氣毀了你旅遊的興致,一定要看一看以下這四點。

 

I’m also going to share a funny incident at the end of the post to spare you the same embarrassment when traveling the Netherlands!

我在最後也會分享一件好笑的事,讓你在荷蘭旅行時,可以避免同樣的尷尬啊!

 

 

1. Check the weather forecast every day before you go out.

每天出門前要看一下天氣預測。

 

It’s likely that the weather will be 5 degrees one day and 15 degrees the next, so remember to google “Amsterdam weather” every day to see what to wear!

很有可能今天天氣 5 度,明天天氣 15 度,所以記得每天咕狗「阿姆斯特丹天氣」,來決定當天要穿什麼!

 

2. A light down jacket is a must.

輕羽絨外套是一定要的。

 

I highly recommend you have a light down jacket in your bag as you will never know if it’s going to be warm or cold outside.

我超級推薦你放一件輕羽絨在你的包包裡,因為你永遠不會知道外面算溫暖還是冷。

 

Sometimes, I thought it would be warm, but it turned out to be a bit cold…

有時候我覺得天氣可能是溫暖的,但結果卻有點冷…。

 

If it’s cold, you can gladly put it on; if it’s not, it won’t take up too much space and weight in your bag. How convenient!

如果天氣冷,你就可以開心地把輕羽絨穿上;如果不冷,它也不會在你的包包中佔太多空間和重量。多方便啊!

 

Bear this in mind: Dress in layers like an onion!

把這句話給牢牢記著:要洋蔥式穿法!

 

 

3. Get yourself a light wind-resistant umbrella.

帶一把輕量型防風傘。

 

It’s not easy to find a store selling umbrellas when you are in a foreign country.

在國外時,要找到賣雨傘的店可不是這麼簡單。

 

You will find it even more difficult when you are in the middle of the rain with an umbrella just destroyed by gusty wind.  

當你在雨中,身上只有一把剛剛被強風弄壞的傘,這一切更是難上加難啊。

 

So don’t forget to bring a light wind-resistant umbrella with you!

所以別忘了隨身帶把輕量型防風傘喔!

 

4. A pair of touchscreen gloves is totally worth it.

觸控螢幕手套完全值得。

 

Nowadays, plenty of travelers rely on Google’s services and save a lot of information on their smartphones.  

現今,許多旅行的人都仰賴咕狗大神的服務,而且把很多資訊都存在他們的手機上。

 

If you wear regular gloves, it would be inconvenient when you need to touch the screen.

如果你帶一般的手套,你要使用手機時就會很不方便。

 

You have to take them off, suffer from the chilly wind, curse the cold weather, and finally access the information you need.  

你必須要把手套脫掉,感受一下刺骨寒風,罵一下冷吱吱的天氣,最後才找到你需要的資訊。

 

However, when you are equipped with gloves that allow you to use your smartphone while wearing them, you will definitely feel that you are on top of the world!   

然而,若你有秘密武器觸控螢幕手套,你絕對會快樂似神仙!

 

 

Embarrassment

尷尬的小事

 

At last, I want to share with you a hilarious incident thanks to the unstable weather.

最後,多虧了這不穩定的天氣,我多了件爆笑冏事想要和你分享。

 

The second day we arrived in Amsterdam, it was close to 0 degrees, but we, as ridiculous tourists, decided to stroll around the city.

我們到阿姆斯特丹的第二天,氣溫接近零度,但身為荒謬的外國旅客,我們決定到市中心晃晃。

 

I remember it had just started raining lightly then, and I asked my mom to hold the umbrella for me since I had to check the map or something.

我記得當時才剛開始下小雨,我就叫米媽幫我拿個雨傘,因為我要看個地圖之類的。

 

After I dug out the map from my bag, I told her, “Okay, give me my umbrella.”

在我從包包挖出地圖後,我跟她說:「好了,給我我的傘。」

 

My mom unconsciously replied, “There you go.”

我媽無意識地回答:「拿去。」

 

However, there was NOTHING in her hand.

但是,她手上蝦咪挖哥都沒有。

 

We looked at each other for a few seconds, feeling bewildered about what just happened.

我們對看了幾秒,很困惑到底發生了什麼事。

 

 

It turned out that a sudden strong wind had stolen my umbrella.

原來,是一陣強風偷了我們的傘。

 

It was just like those notorious thieves in well-known tourist areas who snatch your wallet so professionally that you don’t even feel a thing!

這傢伙就像那些在知名景點的可惡小偷,手法專業到你一點感覺都沒有。

 

I started to look around and, luckily, I saw my umbrella about 10 meters away lying against a wall.

我開始朝四周望了望,很幸運地,我看到我的傘在約十公尺遠的牆邊。

 

Wait…the story wasn’t over yet!

等等…故事還沒有結束喔!

 

Since the wind kept blowing, I couldn’t help but chase after the umbrella.

因為風一直吹,所以我只好追著我的雨傘跑。

 

(You can imagine how embarrassing it was with lots of passersby looking at me.)

(你可以想像一下,有好多路過的人在看我,多尷尬啊。)

 

It wasn’t until around 3 minutes later that I finally caught it.

大概三分鐘之後我才終於逮到我的傘。

 

In short, remember to hold on tight to your stuff while your are in the Netherlands if you don’t want to wind up like me!

簡言之,如果你不想要和我一樣冏歪,在荷蘭時記得抓好你的家當。
