It’s an op­por­tu­nity to meet dif­fer­ent peo­ple – and as a re­sult we have friends liv­ing all around the world. We’re head­ing to Europe with our old friends Dawn and Wally Westrupp, who we first trav­elled with in 1982 on a cruise around the Pa­cific. In April this year, Dawn and Wally told us they were head­ing to Europe and showed us some pho­tos of the Euro­pean Christ­mas mar­kets – we were sold! Within 24 hours we’d booked to go with them. Aus­tria, Ger­many and Bavaria. One mar­ket is in Mozart’s home­town of Salzburg and dates back to 1491 – it will be like be­ing in a fairy­tale. They sell home­made trin­kets, dec­o­ra­tions, and food – what I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to is buy­ing a spe­cial Christ­mas sou­venir. and it’s sur­rounded by snowy moun­tain peaks, some ris­ing 1500m above wa­ter level. It will make a nice change from the ham, salad and pota­toes we usu­ally eat on a hot sum­mer’s day at home!

Jude and War­ren Mor­ton are head­ing to Europe to ex­pe­ri­ence the magic of the Christ­mas Mar­kets.
