Deck the Halls [Vienna Christmas Bazaar Photo Diary]

Wednesday, 27 December 2017
Vienna, Austria
 When I was a tiny little thing, I got the opportunity to experience the pure magic that is Vienna during the Christmas season. Though I've paid this beloved city many visits, most of them never quite coincided with this amazing time of the year... until now.

 This is not a "Christmas miracle" - they are too rare and too special for this phrase to be used so lightly. Yet, stepping through the crowds of happy people, mug of glühwein in one hand and a caramel apple in the other was much like walking through a fairytale. I have little to say about this experience, for words will not suffice. Thus, I will leave these fragments of my time at the market in front of the Rathaus here. If they convey but a spark of the Christmas magic which twinkled in the eyes of all the passers-by, then I will be happy.

What is everyone's favourite Christmas memory?
 Happy Holidays, my lovelies!

Plovdiv, Bulgaria
 The silky feel of a cat purring in your lap. The unpredictable rhythm of jazz. The taste of a steamy cup of coffee. The smell of crisp autumn air. The sight of a rainbow standing out from a fortress of ruined clouds.

 Writers will put it down in words much more eloquent than mine. Photographers will see it in all its colours through their few-thousand-pound lenses. I can do neither. I can simply try and use what I have to recreate a feeling, rather than a city.
Plovdiv. P-love-div.
