Vienna Christmas Market

Yesterday I met up with my two friends Gaby and Regina and went to the Christmas Market at the town Hall in Vienna. I know it is quite early but I am glad they open at this time otherwise I would have missed out on a really nice evening! It was freezing cold for me, especially when I thought about the 38degree temperature in Sydney. The christmas markets just have this special flair that make me happy. I am usually not that interested in the stuff they sell there, but more the different kind of foods or mulled wine. Unfortunately I couldn't drink any this time due to my food intolerance but I still had a good hot cup of tea. I even ditched my diet and had chocolate covered strawberries (and had a big stomachache afterwards). That's something I always get on christmas markets, I already know my doctor will kill me tomorrow when she won't see any improvements, but I just had to. I know that some people don't understand this, but I actually like the cold. I love when I walk and I can see my own breath, when I can't even feel my toes and when I get inside and feel that tingling sensation in my fingers and toes. I love coming into a heated house and leaning against a radiator, lighting some candles and having a hot chocolate with my beloved ones. It is going to be interesting to celebrate christmas with 40 degrees celsius, I hope I won't miss my family too much!
