Flo’s turning 40. Let’s have a ball. No seriously,can we wear ball gowns? This one I blame on Natasha. Since Natasha and Jan were having such a fine time planning my party/trip, I agreed to a lot of their suggestions. Hence how a random group of people from all parts for world, ended up Bliestorf, Germany dressed in dirndl’s and lederhosen.
Tuesday morning found us saying goodbye to some of the group and heading up Bliestorf for part 2 of the trip. It was about a 3 hour drive. We arrived early afternoon to Herrenhaus Gut Bliestorf. I wasa little nervous because all the correspondence had been done online. Well I had nothing to worry about. WOW. Just WOW.
The house has with 13 bedrooms and 11 en suites. It was perfect, as everyone had their own rooms. As a gift to me, Jan, Natasha, Christianne and Norbert, arranged to have a Roman, a massuese come to the house It was perfect. We spent the afternoon just hanging out at the house, getting massages and just enjoying each other’s company.
I figured we would not want to have to hunt down a place to eat on the first night, so I arranged to have dinner catered that night. Well, I asked Jan to arrange the dinner. He told me it was going to be a BBQ. Something clearly got lost in translation. We had FEAST.
There a no food shots, because we were all too busy stuffing our faces. I said to Jan, this is your idea of BBQ? He claimed that he asked for ” a lil meat”. I was crying because I was the idiot that had us all wearing tight outfits the next day. Pretty sure I heard some buttons popping that night. It was amazing. The food was farm to table and could not have been any fresher. It was nice not having to drive anywhere, or even have to walk far to get our rooms.
Stayed tuned for the next part of this adventure… The actual birthday party!
