Christmas Market Brussels December 2015

I know I promised you more pictures from our trip to Italy in April, but a lot has happened since my last post. First of all, I decided to treat myself to a new pc, a MacBook this time. This means I had to get used to a new operating system, a new version of PhotoShop Elements and new video editing software.

Second, this week, Lars and I have been to two Christmas markets. On Tuesday, we visited the one in Brussels and one day later we were in Cologne. Two days of drinking and eating and a lot of walking around. After having spent about 3 months on the sofa, I really had to get used to some physical exercise again. Or in other words, my feet still hurt.

Anyway, without further ado, the pictures from the Christmas market in Brussels. We started at the Muntplein/Place de la Monnaie, where lots of people had fun on the ice skating rink. I, on the other hand, tasted a new drink, called ‘couilles de singe’ (monkey testicles). No idea what was in it, but it was very sweet. Lars stuck to jenever. It is actually quite hard to make a choice, when are dozens  of bottles on display…

Next stop: the Grand Place/Grote Markt with the traditional Christmas tree. There is only one stand here, a champagne and oyster bar.

Afterwards, we went to Bourse/Beurs, where Lars and I tasted Brazilian and Tunisian specialties. Tunisia, by the way, is the guest host this year.

And, last but not least, the Place Sainte-Catherine with the big ferris wheel and a big cabin with Swiss specialties. Lars and I however continued with our shots of jenever. And a big juicy hamburger…

We also shot a video again (with our new GoPro Hero4!):
