Hayley is an amazing violinist and is in Berlin to play with the orchestras there. Next time I visit her, hopefully I'll be able to catch one of her performances as I haven't been able to watch her play since we were little.

Brussels was a really pretty city.
It rained for most of the time and by nightfall, the rain turned to snow.

This time around in Paris, I planned my time a little more carefully. Where before I gave myself less than an hour to visit the Louvre, I cut out a half day to explore it this time. It was a good time to go because there weren't as many tourists so we could get up close to the various antiquities and artwork. This is a photo of the inner courtyard of the museum. Looking forward to my next visit to France this summer!

Went with Brendan to one of the Christmas markets with lots of little wooden stalls selling various crafted objects. The market also had a campfire for people to sit around and be jolly. There was mulled wine and sausage with various potato dishes, of which we had plenty. There was even a lady going around with a stick with mistletoe at the end and holding it above couples' heads so they would kiss. Storybook fantasy kind of stuff.
