  • The last day of the Sankt Wendel Christmas market.
⠀⠀
I was told this one is a good one and yes, it did not disappoint!! If you are ever in the area around this time next year, make this a destination! Many awesome craft vendors, the usual Christmas market stalls, and also a medieval market.
⠀⠀
Hope your weekend is 👌
  • #ad Christmas markets, Noël Marche in French, are best enjoyed after sunset. Colmar was magical that evening.
⠀⠀
My trip with Jovie to Colmar was made last minute. Thanks to @bookingcom the accomodation was easy to find despite the time crunch. The instant confirmation gave me peace of mind.
⠀⠀
I am hoping to take a couple more overnight trips before the end of the year. I have no idea where. I’ll just use Booking’s map feature to search for an inexpensive and good spot.

  • A throwback to last year in London.
⠀⠀
Amazing how a year has gone by so fast! I don’t know if it’s due to the move or it’s this way for most of us.
⠀⠀
A great night sleep and I feel almost normal again. Tomorrow I need to drive to Belgium with Jovie for an event which includes a hike. Estimated temperature -1C!! 😱🥶 Thankfully, whilst I was away, my fleece leggings came. Now to dig through Jovie’s stuff and make sure she has warm stuff!
⠀⠀
Hope your Thursday is beautiful ❤️
  • Sadden by what happened in Strasbourg 😢
⠀⠀
Jovie and I were just there a few weeks ago and had such a great evening enjoying the opening day festivities.
⠀⠀
Hope they find the shooter and thoughts to all affected by this tragedy ❤️❤️
⠀⠀
Going to sleep off my jet lag self. My brain is spinning from tiredness.

😘😘
  • #ad Beautiful Leuven just minutes before the sun went down.

Are you a hotel or apartment type of traveler? Keep reading for a special @bookingcom promo!
⠀⠀
Often people ask where we stay when traveling. Eighty percent of times I travel with kids and on occasion, dogs, and I book an apartment. If it’s a short overnight before catching a plane, a hotel next/near the airport. An apartment gives us a bit of space and also a kitchen. Cost wise, often the same as a hotel, if not less because we can cook our own meals.
⠀⠀
There are many choices out there but since we moved to England in 2010, we’ve been using @bookingcom to search and book our stays. I love the choices the company gives me and often I can find lodging with very flexible cancellation policy. With my husband’s busy and sometimes last minute work change, this flexibility is important to us. Use the link in my bio and @bookingcom will give you 25 EUR off your next reservation.

  • Where are the doggies?
⠀⠀
Things to try when in Belgium: mussels, beer, chocolate and fries!
⠀⠀
I showed my brother the IG behind the scene stuff and he was amused by the planning of it. Being an interior designer though, he understood quickly the importance of making the grids be in a certain direction 😜
⠀⠀
Hope you all had/are having a fabulous Sunday! Flying back to Germany tomorrow. I may go for a feet massage tonight 😬 Laters!! 😘
  • Is this the prettiest Brugge restaurant? It seems like it!!
.
I can’t believe we only have three more weeks of 2018! Gosh, hasn’t the time gone by so quickly?
.
In Indonesia for a few days, nothing IG related. It’s been 11 years since I visited this place and what a change! Jakarta is soooooooo much cleaner and prettier! Traffic is still crazy but it’s cleaner and with more parks to actually enjoy and lounge around at. So to Indonesia, way to go!
.
I’ll be off grid again for a few more days. I just want to pop in today to say hello 😘
  • Such a contrast from less than a month ago. The leaves are no more and in exchange, we have Many many Christmas festivities.
⠀⠀
Do you know that almost every major city here has a month long Christmas market? If you think that’s not overwhelming enough, towns and villages would have their own weekend ones! 🤯🤯 If your goal is to visit Christmas markets in Europe, plan on visiting from a week before December to Christmas and you will be guaranteed many!
⠀⠀
Saarbrücken didn’t disappoint. I loved the month long market, which you see here, but I absolutely adored the special (last weekend only) castle area vendors. Most are local crafters and if I could, I would probably buy something from each booth.

Have a good week, all!
  • December first! Wow, didn’t 2018 go by so so fast?
⠀⠀
How’s your holiday preparation coming? Me, I have only bought two items and a few tree ornaments. That’s it 🙈
⠀⠀
Sassy pants in Riquewihr. Our first stop and she was still enthusiastic. I should share a photo of her when she was done with all: done shopping, walking and being photographed 😂
