Christmas lights in Maastricht

Time has finally arrived for me to be almost on holidays and in order to celebrate my first evening of freedom after a terribly hard term at uni I went for a walk to the city and I spent some time at the Christmas market for the first time this year. The Christmas market in Maastricht is quite small and not especially beautiful but still it was nice to finally let go and get in the mood for Christmas. I took some pictures of the Christmas lights and decorations in Maastricht and even though they're quite simple I really like them. Most of the decorations simply consist of small white leds hanging around naked trees of from street lamps but as ordinary as it might sound, the effect is rather beautiful on cold, dark evenings. So, I hope you like these pictures, even though they're not so good (I should play more with my camera settings and explore the night mode, any advice?) 

Tomorrow I'm flying to Switzerland and after Christmas I'll spend almost three weeks in Tenerife, so I'm really excited about being on the go again and also about being back in two of my favourite places spending time with my loved ones. So, all that's left to say by now is: bye, bye Maastricht, see you in 2013!
