Peak District : Hope Valley

I still have couple of posts about our (now felt as long gone) Peak District visit, but I had an exam in the meantime so had to focus on that too! :)
On our second full day we visited Castleton and Hope Valley, where had we had a nicer, no rainy weather, we would have hiked more on the mountains and hills as this part of the Peak has a great view point area, where you are on the top of the mountains and could have a view at both sides..but as I said had we had better weather...so with a heavily pregnant friend and loads of mud, we did not risk it! And what a great decision, because we were stuck in some torrential rain later...but just before the rain we went into a cave with lots of stalactites and stalagmites, and loads of blue stones called the 'Blue John' at Treak Cliff Cavern.
The name of these minerals; Blue John, has a funny story, I thought I'd share. So rumour has it, that when they found this semi-precious mineral, they found it in two colours - blue and yellow. Then the English took to the French and apparently in French 'Blue and Yellow' is called 'Bleu Jaune'...then with the words of our tourguide...the English being lazy learning a new language they just understood it as 'Blue Jean' hence its name worldwide now is 'Blue John' :)

Anyhow right after we got out of the cave, it started raining heavily and we had a tea made out of water collected in the caves :) but the rain was so heavy and did not seem stopping...so our boys were such gentlemen, that they ran a mile for the cars...(yes, because we parked in the wrong parking lot), so us girls could stay in the shelter and just wait for them, saving us from getting soaking wet...

And the stuff of the cave seeing us being frozen and still waiting there...with a heavily pregnant woman, they offered us some more hot tea on the house :) How nice of them! They were all very nice, funny and knowledgeable about the cave and minerals, spiced up with funny stories :)

By the time the boys arrived, we all were really hungry, so ended up in one of the cozy pubs, in Ye Old Nags Head with open fire, and it really helped us defrost coming from the grim weather outside, when we finished eating...the rain stopped as well and we went home to jump into the jacuzzi offered by the Tawny Owl Cottage where we stayed.

Meg mindig van egy ket posztra valo fotom a Peak Districtbol...de mivel vizsgaidoszak volt, igy arra kellett koncentraljak nagyon.
A masodik napunkon Castleton-ba latogattunk el ahol Hope Valley talalhato, ahova jobb ido hijan nem mentunk fel, de itt eleg konnyu hegyi turaval fel lehet jutni a hegygerincre es a kilatas magaval ragado fentrol a ket volgyre nezve...de Dorival aki terhes volt...es sok sok sarral, en normalis varosi cipovel inkabb ugy dontottunk, hogy nem kockaztatunk es milyen jol tettuk, mert vegul meg az eso is szakadt. De elotte bementunk a Treak Cliff Cavern nevu cseppkobarlanba...mint Aggtelek...

Viszont ez a hely a 'Blue John' nevu asvanyrol is hires, mely nevehez fuzodik egy eleg vicces sztori is. Blue John azt jelenti egyebkent magyarul, hogy Kek Janos. Szoval amikor megtalaltak ezt az asvanyt ami egyebkent nem csak kek de sarga szinben is elofordul es aztan elvittek a franciaknak is megmutatni...a franciak elneveztek oket kek (franciaul Bleu) es sarga (franciaul Jaune) koveknek...na de mint tudjuk, az angolok, a turavezetonk szavaval elve, annal lustabbak, mint hogy nyelvet tanuljanak, igy amikor visszajottek Angliaba, a francia kek sarga vagyis 'Bleu Jaune' nevvel lattak el, pedig ez csak mint szinleiro melleknevkent szerepeltek, nem pedig mint asvany-nevek....de ez angolul Kek Janosnak vagyis Blue John-nak hangzik... igy az angolok kis tudatlansaga miatt maradt rajta ez a nev ami mara mar vilagszerte igy ismert. :) (remelem ertheto volt igy magyarul leirva...)

Egyebkent amikor kijottunk a barlangbol, akkor aztan tenyleg razenditett az eso...es nem tunt ugy, hogy el akarna allni...meg az elejen oke is volt, mert a barlangban osszegyujtott vizbol keszult forro teat iszogattunk...csak eppen mar vagy fel ora utan...csak menni kellett volna...de az eso nem tovabbra is szakadt...vegul a fiuk voltak olyan gavallerok, a holgyek megmentoi :), hogy elfutottak a parkoloig, ami vagy 1-1.5 kilometerre volt, mivel igen voltunk olyan butak, hogy a tavolabbi parkoloban alltunk meg...igy mi holgyek, nem aztunk el egyaltalan, mert teljesen a barlangig jottek, hogy felvegyenek bennunket :)

Kozben pedig amig vartunk a barlangi dolgozoknak, megesett rajtunk a szivuk es ingyen ajanlottak fel meg forro teat a nagy hidegben :) eleg jo fejek, nem? :)

A nap vegere mindenki jol megehezett es egy helyi kis kocsmaban kototunk ki, ahol nagyon finom es jo magyaros adag angol kocsmai kajat kaptunk :) majd hazaerve, a napot zarva, mindenki beugrott a kiberelt hazunkhoz tartozo jacuzziba is!

In these last days of winter and on the dawn of spring I thought to show you once more my gorgeous blue Club Monaco Sohrab coat :) I was very happy with it this winter and even when we went to the Peak District...having lows and wind...it kept me warm, showed a nice shape and kept bringing new smiles and nice comments from random people :) Even in Bakewell, when we got out of the car...we passed a couple and the woman told me how much she loved my blue Club Monaco coat :) So thought you would like it too one more time :)

Szoval ez nem is angol kabat, hanem amerikai, de a lenyeg, hogy nagyon jo melegen tartott engem a hidegben es szelben! Egeszen jo alakot kolcsonzott nekem, es meg egy csomo bokot is kaptam ismeretlen emberektol :) meg ebben a pici faluban is, eppen, hogy kiszalltunk a kocsibol es elindultunk a varoskozpontba, amikor egy elhalado par mondta h mennyire szep :) Szoval ugy gondoltam nektek is tetszeni fog :)

The Bakewell Tart Experience

Finally, we made it to the Cafe and had a bite in the original Bakewell tart included in a very British tradition of afternoon tea, offered by the The Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop/Cafe. Hmm it says Old and Original, but apparently we heard that there was another shop, called Bloomer's, who claims the same and rumour has it that they even went to court proving their right and having the secret recipe to a tasty Bakewell tart.
Well, we did not really mind which one is the original, but The Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop offered the aforementioned afternoon tea :) hence we tried that. It came of course with the normal scones with clotted cream and jams, tea and the most important! Old and Original Bakewell Tart and a newer version as well, which is now more well known than its older brother. In my opinion they were scrumptious but I preferred the newer version.

If you decide to go to the Peak District check this gorgeous little town and have a tart their! And please try to find out who won in court, because we never managed to get the answer :) Enjoy your evening and have a great start of the week!

Vegul beultunk az egyik magat eredetinek mondo Bakewell lepeny kavezoba. Igen azert irom, hogy magat eredetinek vallo, mert ugyanis ketto boltocska is azt allitja, hogy ok keszitettek a legelso ilyen lepenyt es a titok het pecset alatt van orizve. Ezt nem tudom, de az a mende monda jarta a faluban, hogy a ket bolt perre is ment, hogy bebizonyitsak kinek is van igaza.
Mi vegul az Old Original Bakewell Pudding Kavezoba ultunk be, ahol is ugymond delutani teaztunk. Itt angliaban ennek nagy hagyomanya van es minden kis faluban hotelek, kavezok menujen megtalalhato a delutani tea, termeszetesen London nevesebb szallodai es ettermei sem maradhatnak am ki a sorbol. Na de sokunknak Magyarorszagon, ez csak annyit mondana, hogy leulunk teazni egyet...de itt Angliaban ez sutikkel es egyes helyeken, helyes kis szendvicskekkel jar. Na es persze az elmaradhatatlan 'scone' (ejtsd: szkon), amit legjobban ugy tudnek leirni mint egy magyar pogacsa csak edes es van aki mazsolat is tesz bele. Ehhez pedig jar a lekvar es a szinten tipikusan angol 'clotted cream' ami pedig egy nagyon nagy zsirtartalmu tejszin-feleseg. Ezen a helyen termeszetesen a Bakewell lepeny is benne volt :) es nem csak az amit manapsag mindenki ismer, hanem az eredeti is. Igaz mindketto verzio, a regi es az uj is finom, nekem az ujitott recept amit manapsag lehet venni jobban bejott :)

Ha ugy dontenetek, hogy meglatogatjatok a Peak District-et Angliaban, akkor ide Bakewell-be is mindenkeppen nezzetek el, es ne csak megkostoljatok a lepenyket, de deritsetek ki azt is, hogy vegul kinek adtak a lepenykeket majszolo birak igazat :) nekunk ugyanis nem sikerult kideritenunk.
Legyen szep estetek es egy nagyon szuper hetetek!
Puszik!

The Bakewell adventures in the Peak District

So today I will write a bit about Bakewell, which was our first destination. As you can see the misty morning was followed by a wet day, but we had so much fun! My colleague Ellie has recommended us to visit Bakewell as this is the place where the Bakewell tart comes from!
Have you tried the Bakewell tart? It's yummy but more about it in the next post as we went and tried it in the cafe where they started creating it 100s of years ago.

So the town itself is small and very picturesque, but there was not much to do other than walking a bit in the cold and hearing some old stories about the competing bakewell tart stores and of course tasting the bakewell tarts.
But never mind it gave us good opportunity to take lots of pictures! And you know what I am so glad I took my selfie stick with me, so all of us could be on the same photo and did not have to have pictures with someone missing form it! Although I still find it a bit embarrassing to use it :) haha.

Anyhow check out the pics and stay tuned for more in the coming days!

Ma az elso igazi kirandulos naprol hoztam par kepet Bakewellbol. Amint latjatok a kodos hajnalt, egy hideg es esos nap kovette, de szerencsenkre epp akkor es ott pont nem esett es igy is jo kedvunk volt! :) A kolleganom Ellie ajanlotta, hogy ha megyunk a Peak Districtbe akkor Bakewell-be is mindenkeppen el kell menjunk. Innen szarmazik ugyanis a hires angol suti a Bakewell lepeny, amit ugy kepzeljetek el, hogy van egy mandulas alap amire aztan egy reteg malna lekvar es vegul megint egy mandulas reteg kerul ra, majd a teteje meg van szorva mandula darabokkal es porcukorral :)

A varoska kicsi, de nagyon szep es idealis jo fotokhoz, meg igy esos idoben is :) romantikus, kis patakkal, templommal, regi angol hazakkal. Egy szoval cuki! Viszont nem tul sok minden van amit itt lehet csinalni azonkivul, hogy setalhatunk, 100 eves torteneteket hallhatunk a lepenyrol es persze meg is kostolhatjuk :)

Jo sok kepet csinaltunk itt, es tudjatok mit? Az, hogy elhoztam a szelfibotomat szuper dontes volt, mert igy rengeteg fotot tudtunk csinalni, ugy hogy mindannyian rajta voltunk es nem csak hianyosan :)
Na jo egy kicsit meg mindig ciki elovenni, es azonnal leveszi mindenki, hogy turistak vagyunk, de kit izgat!

Jah es ha nezitek a kepeket, lesz egy, ahol egy fali tabla van! Kepzeljetek, itt anglia kellos kozepen egy kevesebb mint 4000 fos falucskaban is lehetett kapni gulyast es debreceni szalamit! Eleg jo nem? :)

Remelem tetszenek a fotok es majd csekkoljatok vissza, mert lesz tobb is meg a heten! Puszik!
