University has finally finished for the semester and at last I can have my life back. Since it's nearly Christmas I thought I would blog about Christmas markets!
I love Christmas, seriously love it. I love that round this time of year everyone is a festive mood and celebrates all together. Christmas markets is where this mood and celebrations are at their peak; so when my Auntie invited me to Winter Wonderland with my cousins, I jumped at the chance to go! For those who don't know what Winter Wonderland is, it's a huge event where Hyde Park in London is transformed into, well, a Winter Wonderland. There are rides, stalls, ice rink and plenty of food! I'm a massive foodie so I was in complete heaven; mulled wine, roasted chestnuts, hog roast, waffles, every food related to winter and Christmas was there.
Winter Wonderland is open until 6th January of you want to go! I recommend going early though to beat some of the crowds. More info here http://www.hydeparkwinterwonderland.com/
Another place in London famous for their Christmas spirit is Covent Garden. Plenty of beautiful decorations, shops and performers to see. We had lunch at a place called Brasserie Blanc (it's a chain so there is plenty around) which overlooked Covent Garden so we got a great view of the decorations that hung from the market's roof!
The whole day was so much fun and I am now fully in the festive mood!! Hopefully you all are too!!
