I'll never forget my first Christmas market. It was absolutely freezing and I was amazed as the hearty Germans walked around outside shopping, snacking around apparently unfazed by the weather. Well, then I had my first glühwein and I understood why! After many more, I wasn't cold either. This hot spiced wine is the perfect thing to warm you up on a cold winter night. These photos are from my first outing with D's family and friends, having one at Dresden's Christmas market.
