In 2023 I will travel more, and be better about documenting my photos on my return. No idea where this photo was taken, somewhere in Germany in mid-December. We were on a shopping expedition to find warmer clothes! I left home with one hat, knowing I'd need at least that much, and returned with three hats. The finest and warmest of the three -- bright red for the holiday -- came from the Christmas market in Cologne. Having never been to this part of Germany, it was an education, much enjoyed. Next stop: Iceland!
Never one to give up, I'm reestablishing my Facebook presence after an absence of a year or so. Please like, follow, LOL, or whatever you're inclined to do.
Note, this is a friends' page. The business page FB (and a former publisher) want me to establish is for running book ads, which I am loathe to do. Former publisher created absolute chaos when, as it turned out, much of their marketing team had my password (!)
I believe this was in Kloster Eberbach. Stunning place for dinner and wine tasting. The trip is a blur--hate it when that happens. Never time on our return to go through the photos properly. Anyway, this was one of those evenings I can still call to mind. It is a disused monastery but perfectly preserved.
With hundreds of photos. I'll spare you all that, I've posted a lot of them on Instagram @g.m.malliet, but the Christmas lights everywhere are spectacular.
And the cathedrals.
I'll miss being able to get authentic roasted chestnuts outside Strasbourg Cathdral in France. But I won't miss the temperatures. The highs were below freezing most days, and by the time I got home I had a cold. But it was so worth it.
Visiting Germany for the first time in ages, wanting to visit the famous Christmas markets along the Rhine. Watch this space for dozens of photos to come!
