Vienna was class
It means nothing to me

I once had a dream about that back when I was younger. The song was playing and the news man announced the world was going to end and there was a white light and an explosion. Was surreal

Sure when you were young it probably was an explosion.

That must have been scary. It is still a cracking song

But kept from British No 1. by that classic of the 1980s "Shaddap You Face".

Cologne has about 6 different Christmas markets, some of which run into each other. Really enjoyed it & the locals seem to be a happy, easy going lot. As a break from all the festivity you can visit the former gestapo interrogation centre!

We did the Bruges one a few years back. Christmas market was ok but the city itself was beautiful. Some deadly beers, too.

Was it like a fairytale?

I go to the Birmingham one regularly enough. Itís nice although it does feel a bit inauthentic as itís a German market not in Germany.

I went to the Berlin ones and they were nice too but lacking athmosphere. The nicest one was in the Gendarmenmarkt.

Havenít been anywhere else.
