Easy Jet takes 1 1/2 hours from London to Berlin, and the autobahn takes another 3 1/2 hours to Eisenach, where daughter Gretchen lives.

Eisenach is a quaint, medieval town on the edge of the Thuringian Forest and in the center of Germany. Its city gates date back to 1200.

No town is too small for at least one Christmas market. Eisenach has two: one at the central market platz, and the other up the hill at the castle.

Christmas market sells candy and gluwein and bratwurst and gluwein and smoking-men incense burners and gluwein. It has blacksmiths and offers kiddie rides (and did I mention gluwein?)

Tomorrow we climb the hill to the castle!
