Some­thing odd is hap­pen­ing in Europe: more and more of us are head­ing there in the depths of win­ter. That makes Christ­mas mar­kets our pick for “spe­cialty” trend of 2010 – even river cruise com­pa­nies are get­ting in on the action, of­fer­ing De­cem­ber cruises to favourite mar­ket cities across Ger­many, Aus­tria and be­yond.
