Christmas Markets on the Danube
River cruising from Vienna to Nuremberg in December was amazing.
Holidaying in the cold when it is summer at home isn't for everyone, but what an experience I had, mulled wine, Christmas markets, castles, cold crisp air and the tranquility of a river cruise, magical.
I was waiting for snow and didn't see any until I had checked in at Nuremberg airport for my flight to Barcelona, couldn't do much about touching that from my boarding gate!
River cruising is quite different from ocean cruising and I would love to do more, the small ship experience is something else.
