Munich Rathaus

Had to climb 306 steps up the Alter Peter church for a shot! Was totally worth it, the stairs is scary though with people using the same steps to go down )

Sunset in Bad Endorf

I was sorting out my photos from the Christmas vacations and wanted to share with you few more pictures I took in Bad Endorf in Germany. I’ve already posted few before, but they are so different, that it makes sense to show the whole evening. The sun went down pretty fast coloring the sky in all shades of yellow and red. The sunset in that area is genuinly amazing.

On the other note, it’s 4.30 at night and I’m at work. Having a nightshift could be quiet fascinating. I thought it would be a torture, but it’s actually pretty good. Though I can’t want to have a vacation at last. I will finish nightshift in the beginning of March, will have 5 days of transition and then – Paris!
I really can’t wait.

Bad Endorf, Germany

It’s hard to belive now, but I took these photos this Christmas in Germany. It was pretty cold, don’t let the greeт grass tell you otherwise! Though the color totally depended on the sun – we went out walking sometime in the evening and could observe a very beautiful sunset in the end.

That area is located near Prien au Chiemsee and you can see the Alps pretty much from your backyard. It’s a breathtaking view I must admit, but that part of Germany is in general one of the most beautiful places I’ve been. I wish we drive along the alpine road again this summer when we have a second car trip.

Glass Christmas decorations in Cologne

I already posted few photos of the glass decorations on the Christmas market in Cologne, but now I found a photo of a man who was making them right on the market. It’s a very exciting process, to see how something that beautiful is created.

Surprisingly, I din’t find that huge variety of Christmas decorations in Cologne that I saw in Munich or Berlin in previous years. I wonder if it’s a regional thing, in Cologne markets are full of food and crafts, a lot of crafted things made of wool, leather, paper. You can easily buy a wallet, belt, bag, scarf or even a table cloth there – everything is really beautiful. On the last day of the market most of the sellers make discounts by the way, which is cool )

Christmas market in Cologne

The good thing about being a Russian is that Christmas is not over for me after 25th at all, it’s just starting. Can’t wait for the New year, already planned the food menu, movies to watch, and presents of course.

Want to keep the Christmas spirit as much as possible, so I will post my vacation photos for a while.
Took these on the Christmas market in Cologne, I’m so glad I took my macro lens and could take at least few detailed photos of the beautiful glass decorations they had there.

I so liked the lights on the first photo, was walking around them for 2 days and couldn’t decide to buy until they had a sale in the last day and we bought 2 different ones. They are just amazing, put them on the wall in the bedroom and seriously considering keeping them for the rest of the year. They make the room so cozy…

This is a very cool thing, I bought one like this for myself. It’s a Christmas decoration that you put on a tree, its made of glass and you can put a small candle inside. Don’t know about safety, but looks really good )
