Every so often, I have a travel experience that is like no other and it prompts a recommendation for your bucketlist. My latest recommendation is exploring European Christmas markets. Most of them start running from the last day of November through end of December/early January. If you have ever been to an European market, then just imagine that experience on an elevated level with all the things yoyu love about this time of year. If you have not experienced European market, then visiting one of the several hundred Christmas markets is a great introduction. If you find yourself in Europe this time of year - be sure to look up Christmas markets close to you. Some of my favorites include the Christmas markets in Paris , Tate Modern in London, Bath, and Barcelona. The world famous Strasbourg Christmas market is one I am hoping to check off soon. You can find a listing of top Christmas markets in Europe here. For now, here are snapshots from the Christmas market at the Tate Modern in London.
