Schonbrunn's Christmas spirit was in full swing by 10am. Everyone already had their mugs of punsch and gluwhein before we arrived just ten minutes after it opened. And the quality level of their Christmas goods to be sold was definitely a notch higher than what we'd seen before. If you want to take a peek at the seven-plus markets we went to...here's a video I made that's under two minutes that'll take you there:
Before we left for Europe I gathered up new music from all available friends and family because I knew I'd need it here. One particular friend gave me all of Sufjan Stevens' Christmas albums and for that, Andrew, I thank you sooooo so much! I remember you saying "You don't have to take all of it. You might not like it all." Wrong, Drew. I Love it. All.
Proof that I got to enjoy the warm drinks of the markets too. This one was Chai. Mmmm Chai.
