It all started with an early wake up call. The plan was to drive to Germany together with my boyfriend, my brother-in-law and his wife to visit the Christmas markets of Cologne and Dusseldorf. A warm shower is what we needed to start waking up but when the water was not going down the drain we knew something was wrong. Cleaning the clogged pipes at 7am was definitely not part of my plan for the day.
This was just the initial hiccup, the day went quite amazingly after that. We went around the markets in Cologne and had a great time. I had visited these markets in the past years, but the experience was still as if it was the first time. Drinking mulled wine from boot shaped cups, eating bratwursts and finally starting to feel that Christmas is just round the corner.
