I’ve been back in the states for just over month, after living abroad for three months in Europe! It feels so great to be back home. Initially, I was concerned I would miss Europe so much that I wouldn’t be happy back in the States, following my old routine. Luckily, it was the complete opposite! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVED my time in Germany, but it feels so good to be back in my own home, with my own bed, and my clothes hanging in my closet.
If you’ve never been to Germany during the holidays, you’re missing out! The German’s really know how to get you in the Christmas spirit! Almost every square across the country will have markets set up, offering traditional German treats and gifts… and Munich is no exception!
Would Christmas in Germany even be Christmas in Germany without an abundance of Christmas Markets?! I made it my mission to seek out the best markets Munich has to offer; I spent countless hours sipping gluhwein, tasting lebkuchen, and perusing the ornaments. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.
