Edinburgh Christmas Market

This weekend the Edinburgh Christmas Market opened so my friend and I went to check it out.
Luckily it wasn’t as cold as I had remembered it being last year.
Or maybe I just dressed warmer?
Anyways, we were able to walk around without feeling like our fingers and toes were about to freeze.
But there were still a lot of people!German Christmas Market, Edinburgh // L.AlexandraGerman Christmas Market, Edinburgh // L.AlexandraWe didn’t realise the fireworks were accompanied by music on George Street so they looked a bit unspectacular from where we were.

But the line is always so long…
This year I’ll wrap up warmly and wait it out.

You sit in these seats, you go to the top and then it spins you around.
I have never understood the thrill of rides.German Christmas Market, Edinburgh // L.Alexandra German Christmas Market, Edinburgh // L.AlexandraAll wrapped up.German Christmas Market, Edinburgh // L.Alexandra German Christmas Market, Edinburgh // L.Alexandra

Β Sadly we were a bit disappointed with the food.
We had a steak sandwich but the meat was really fatty and hard to chew.
The waffles also seemed a bit undercooked (/baked?) which made them doughy.

Walking through the Christmas Market, seeing all the lights and the food really puts you into a festive mood.
If you’re in Edinburgh definitely go check it out.

And hey guess what:
Less than a month till Christmas!
