London is alive with lights, markets and theatre shows at the moment. It really is a wonderful time to be in the UK capital – I just wish it wasn’t quite so cold! Over the weekend, my daughters and I went to watch the Gruffalo Live with a friend. I am taking inspiration from the post I linked up to City Tripping last week on festive activities to do in London. This week, I am reminiscing about our trip to Bruges which was TWO years ago now although unbelievably I have only just got around to editing the video *hides behind hands in shame*. Doing so though, transported back to the sights and sounds of the Christmas markets in Bruges and reminded me just how good the chocolate is there (and how young Mrs T was too). What a great trip!

    Oh I missed your London post! I always think that it’s the best time to visit London when it’s cold and all the lights are twinkling, don’t you? x

      I do really like London when its all sparkly and dressed up in decorations although I do think it is pretty special in summer too.

    I’d love winter if it wasn’t for the cold 😉
    Having said that, London is a pretty place to be in winter so I suppose I can forgive the dreariness.

    I love Bruge, such a beautiful city! (Glad it’s not just me that takes so long to edit videos!) 😀
