ulm

Yaaaay, christmas markets are finally here and I'm crazy excited! First things first, though. This thursday was for Thanksgiving, which I somehow ended up hosting, although it was my first time to celebrate it. From 1PM we started baking two turkeys to feed around 15 guests in the evening. As everyone was also asked to bring a dish, we ended up having loads of food from mashed potatoes, sweet potato dishes, stuffing, salads to all kinds of pies, cakes and other sweets! Three days later, there are still some leftovers that we haven't eaten yet. :D

Saturday was planned for Ulm. Tuuli, Matt and I got there a bit later than originally planned, but had a great day exploring the Weihnachtsmarkt, Ulmer Münster and Fishermen's quarter. The foggy weather made even the 2 degrees below Celsius feel unbearably cold and hid the Münster tower in a cloud. But here's a tip: if you ever feel cold, try climbing up the tallest church tower in the world! We could "only" go half-way up the tower which still meant walking up around 400 steps which took us right below the cloud. Before heading back home, we stopped by at IKEA and stocked up on christmas-season equipment like candles and blankets and tea cups and more candles. Ready for december now. :)
