my first visit to a christkindlmarkt!

yesterday i met up with the lovely mimie and her friend for some glühwein (mulled wine) although we ended up drinking several mugs of warm apfel punsch instead (it tasted very much like mulled cider). YUM!!
there are lots of christkindlmarkts (christmas markets) now in vienna. exciting! the largest one is in front of the rathaus (i passed here on the way home and it looked beautiful although VERY busy). we opted for one of the smaller ones at freyung (which is a square in the first district). there were lots of stalls selling christmas decorations and gifts... but the best bit (in my opinion) the punsch and glühwein stands!
its kinda weird seeing christmas trees and decorations... i don't feel christmasy at all yet. but there are so many markets to explore... and so much apfel punsch to be drunk... i'm sure it'll help me get in the christmas spirit!
