Well, the reason I went on this trip was to see the Christmas Markets. The best of the ones we visited was at the Thurn and Taxis Catle in Germany. It was such a romantic market! Unfortunately, Mike was back on the ship dealing with retched kidney stones, so neither of us got the romantic feelings. There were more craftsmen at this market then others. Everywhere you looked there were little fires with people gathered around, wonderful food to eat, and Christmas spirit.
