Amber, jewellery and Christmas

…this sounds like a perfect gift, however for us this pin points our seasonal escapade.  We decided to blend together some family time, travel and Christmas celebrations.  And we even took a small case of jewellery to accompany us on the journey.

For us the journey is a part of the experience, thus we chose to take Eurostar from London to Paris and then get on TGV to Strasbourg.  The festivities were visible everywhere and the trains were full of people with bags of wrapped presents, heading to meet their families for Christmas.

Strasbourg is a classic Alsatian city with enchanting medieval streets and architecture.  The spirit of the city is particularly visible over the Christmas period, when its famous Christmas markets appear on every square, no matter how small it may be.  The city is wonderfully decorated with lights, making evening walks for a cup of vin chaud a romantic pilgrimage.

We hope that you also spent relaxing Christmas and we wish you all the best in this special time of the year.
