weinachtmarkt

Last week we headed to Atlanta for their first Weinachtmarkt (German Christmas market). According to the website it appeared that it would be much larger than it actually was and a little more authentic. I thought it was an ok attempt for a first time market run by volunteers, but having been to the real thing it was hard to find it very exciting. We did enjoy some authentic bratwursts and enjoyed seeing that they had brought over the little wooded houses to sell their items. We purchased a couple handmade wooden toys for Kai that were very reasonably priced, and think they would make great Christmas presents for any kid! There was also one German lady there selling chocolate that for a moment made me forget I was in America and imagine I was at the real thing! All in all we had a really fun day, we enjoyed the little bits of the market and some retail shopping in downtown Atlanta 🙂 ciao bellas!

p.s. check the last photo 🙂 I asked a stranger to take it and apparently they were trying to capture the whole tree lol !!15391274_10154791092201703_1868807035110730480_o15609015_10154815370546703_519816313_o15631292_10154815363406703_1660851778_o15592507_10154815374686703_469376603_n
