Sweet welcome at the hotel

I haven’t decided yet which city in Europe has the best Christmas lights. The two cities competing are Paris and Madrid. Even though Paris has something extra, la Grande Roue de la Concorde which changes the scenery every holiday season. Unfortunately Milan has the saddest christmas lights ever. We have taken austerity very seriously and the mayor is doing a great job in not spending any money apart from a sad tree in front of the Duomo.  That’s why every year I spend Christmas and New Year’s Eve away. Going somewhere more sparkly makes me happy but I keep wishing Milan would become a city where Christmas time can be celebrated from turists and residents. 



I went back to Paris in December and enjoyed the evening walks in Champs Elysées with its stunning illuminations and a Christmas market full of small chalets where artisans sell their creations and you could get some of the most delicious crepes, champagne, foie gras and ham. You could also skate in the skating rink or get a wonderful view of Paris by night on the Grande Rue. 



I’ve heard that Berlin also is a city that offers a lot of activities during th holiday season. So maybe for next year I’ll go and check it out.
