It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

Radolfzell Weihnachtsmarkt

Though we were in Barcelona for a long weekend, we were home in time to visit the last night of our local Christmas Market (Weihnachtsmarkt) on Sunday.

Now, this is the third Christmas season we will have spent in Rado - where has the time gone?  Time certainly does fly.

The first two Christmas Markets were snow covered, and you walked through the stalls with snowflakes on your nose, clutching your mug of Gluhwein in your gloved hands - trying to keep warm.  Last night?  Not so much.  Someone with some sort of pull has obviously read my blog on the constant grey and boring weather in Rado, and last night there was gale force wind and it was about 11c!

It was so windy that stall holders were packing up early and the remaining ones were leaning against the walls of their stalls, trying to hold them to the ground before they swirled off into the heavens.

We were exhausted after a fab weekend in Barca, but grabbed two mugs of Gluhwein and they were so good.  This year they seemed to be fortified with shots of apple schnapps before being topped off with Gluhwein - yum!

We walked around and checked out all the stalls and then decided that we'd go and visit our friend Kitty at her lovely restaurant, Royal Thai, for our dinner before heading home to collapse into bed for a very early night.

Wonder what the weather will be doing next year for the Weihnachtsmarkt?
