German Christmas Market

I've just returned from the Christmas Markets in Munich Germany. What a treat!

I went with 7 friends and we spent the weekend walking, shopping, eating, drinking and relaxing. We had a ball. Our friend Susanna is from Germany which was very helpful for translation!

I'd been to Munich while traveling Europe in my early 20's; it was everything I remembered and more. It's a beautiful city with pedestrian streets, lovely squares and interesting architecture. The weather was crisp, cool and dry. And the markets were brilliant!

We laughed until our sides hurt, walked until our feet hurt and chatted into the wee hours of the morning. A big thanks to my boys for letting me go! Hip, Hip, Hooray!
