Note to self: Most shops and restaurants are closed during Christmas, so check the schedules before leaving for a touristy area. This applies to any city during the holidays. Coming from Seoul, where practically everything is open on holidays, I didn’t realize European cities would be down for the season. It was still a great reason to journey along the streets, getting lost and screaming with joy whenever we found an open shop. Which was not many.
한국이라면 크리스마스같이 상업적인 휴일도 없을텐데. 철없이 돌아다니기만 해도 좋기도 했지만 문닫은 가게들이 안타깝기만 했던 크리스마스 휴일.
