    Colmar, France

    December 20, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    We flew from China to Paris this morning. Our original plan to get to Colmar was by train from Paris. However, there were strikes going on and our train was cancelled. We had to book a flight from Paris to Frankfurt where the rest of my family were meeting, and then travel 3 hours by car to Colmar.

    Once all the family members arrived, we were on our way to Colmar in a rented van driven by the brother in laws father. Once we got to Colmar, we checked into our air bnb, which turned out to be better than I expected! Its located close to the old town centre and close to where the Christmas markets are held. The buildings are stunning, especially with the Christmas lights and decorations. Old Germanic styled buildings and houses.

    We plan on visiting the markets early tomorrow morning, and from there, I'm not entirely sure what else we will be doing as my brother is planning this trip for us. I would love to try the carousel and ice skating though!
