Exeter Christmas Market 2014

We love Christmas markets and especially love going to the one in Exeter.

While it isn’t as big as the ones in Birmingham or Manchester, it suits us well and has enough food stalls and other little shops to make a little family like ours – happy.

This was actually a French stall that showed lovely colourful treats, but as you can see, they also sold some Turkish delights.  We asked little T if she wanted anything, to our surprise she replied “No thank you”.

But she couldn’t resist the Italian ones and chose more than a couple of these delicious treats.

She actually had a bite of each one and put them all back in the bag – kids!

Now this is my idea of a “treat”.  I love paella, especially authentic Spanish paella like this one.

And of course, it wasn’t all food stalls.  There were loads of little shops that sold Christmas decorations, presents and everything one would need for Christmas.

A Christmas market isn’t complete without German sausages which little T and our friends had.  Sorry folks, wasn’t able to take any photos.  By this time I was busy eating and enjoying my paella.

That’s little T doing a silly one, but her dad clicked before she could even pull it off.

And there’s the beautiful 14th century Exeter cathedral, which apparently has the longest uninterrupted vaulted ceiling in England.

On our way back to our friends house, we passed a Father Christmas decoration, standing just outside a Polish store.  Little T actually asked me to take her photo, but before I could even click, she did her silly pose again.
