I absolutely love this Brenna! I spent my childhood in Europe, and Christmas markets were always my favorite! I would wait on pins and needles each year as they started to put up the stalls and lights. Even today, I think Europe is one of the most magnificent and magical places to be in the winter! It makes me look forward to the day when I live in that part of the world again, but for now I am enjoying Asia! Happy Holidays!

Oh wow – that sounds wonderful. What an amazing childhood memory! I am definitely loving all of the lights and markets, it’s so beautiful.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Brenna! Great pictures, especially the foggy one in Vienna. I’ve just spent my first Christmas away from home in Vietnam and it was so strange celebrating under blue skies and sunshine rather than the typical English rain and cold. Your pics make me long for a ‘proper’ cold Christmas!

Brenna Holeman December 31, 2013 - 12:23 pm

Aw, thank you Amy – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, too! I’ve spent Christmases in warm climates before (Borneo and Dominican Republic) and it can be quite strange. I’m glad that I had a very traditional holiday this year – but I definitely miss those blue skies and sunshine…

Zalie December 31, 2013 - 1:42 pm

I am so glad that we got to spend Christmas together in such a beautiful city xo

Me too! I had such an amazing time…

Amazing photos! Europe is like a fairy tale at Christmas time, especially Germany and Austria.

It is! I hope to spend many more Christmases in Europe.
