German Christmas Markets

The Schindler’s hopped on a Ryan Air flight after school and work on Wednesday and headed to Cologne Germany. We landed late and headed straight to our hotel. After a quick nights sleep we hopped on the local train and headed to the Christmas Markets. We spent Thanksgiving eating our way through the Christmas Markets. YUMMY!  Madeline and I enjoyed ice skating. (She used a trainer for one lap and then did it on her own!) We toured the most beautiful cathedral. Nick and I think it is our favorite in all our travels. GORGEOUS! Then we headed back to the hotel early to enjoy the Aldi’s next door and the indoor POOL!  The next day it was more markets, eating, chocolate, and pool. The last day we went to the Lindt chocolate factory, more eating, a big train ride to the airport and back to England. It was a wonderful adventure!  We can’t wait to do more German Christmas Markets.  Who wants to come along?

Madeline got a name stamp made. It was fun watching the lady cut out the wood.
