Christmas Markets

I love Christmas markets. While living in Germany I discovered the joy of wandering through the market, seeing the crafts, smelling the food, and (of course!) enjoying a cup of glühwein. On a recent trip to Edinburgh, we happened completely by chance on their market. What fun!

Trains & Rain

Winter is hard, when the sun starts setting before 4 pm and any day can threaten to turn chilly and rainy. But as I stood under the bridge, watching for the train that would take me to dinner and listening to the sound of the rain, I could almost imagine I was standing in the middle of a film noir.
