After staying the night at Spangdahlem we got up Saturday morning and drove to Trier. Trier is Germany's oldest city. We honestly were not real impressed with Trier. We also didn't do much research on things to do. We walked around the walking street and did a little shopping. They were in the process of setting up their Christmas Market. There are some old Roman buildings that were cool to see smack in the middle of the city but other than that we were a little bored. We only stayed a little bit then headed to Heildelberg. We met up again with my husbands friend from high school and her boyfriend. We ate dinner together and walked around the Heidelberg Christmas Market. This was our first Christmas Market in Germany! We got our first taste of Gluwein which is a hot spiced wine. To be honest, I was a little disappointed with this Christmas Market. There were no Christmas decorations. No nutcrackers, no German pyramids, no ornaments... but the hot chocolate was good! Oh well, we have plenty more Christmas Markets to go to. One of which will be this weekend in Dresden with my parents! I am so excited!
