We went to Europe for a month, mostly so we could visit as many Christmas markets as possible. Our route took us from Brussels to Budapest, then back to Brussels to fly home for Christmas.
The Christmas markets hadn't started in Brussels or Brugge, but began with our time in Luxembourg. We rated each city on it's food, shopping and atmosphere throughout the Christmas markets, since there were multiple in every city we visited.
Luxembourg had just started their Christmas market season when we arrived. It was nice to walk around the few markets we went to, but there weren't a lot of options for different things to eat or buy. The lights were nice though!
After saying goodbye to my mom & sister in New York, I got on a flight to Warsaw, Poland. I spent 8 hours on a plane, but I have very little to report. I spent nearly the entire time sleeping, except for the last 30 minutes or so. During that time, I realized that Ida Swiatek, the winner of the Women's US Open tennis tournament, was in my cabin and all the flight attendants took pictures with her. She seemed very young, but handled her adoring fans very gracefully. She was quick to exit the plane and I didn't see her again.
While I was landing in Warsaw, Brennan had already made it to Munich. He found a biergarten and began enjoying the German food while I sat in the Warsaw airport trying not to fall asleep. I finally made it to Munich airport that evening and Brennan met me as I got off a bus to the city center. It was so good to see him after two weeks apart!
