My beautiful and wize mother is quite amazing. She’s just fantastic in general, but this time I had one particualer thing in mind. For my 20th birthday she got me an extraodanary present, a weekend stay at Kokkedal Castle near Copenhagen.
The weekend was full of fancy treatments and delicious meals. We got there Friday evening and had some dinner in the late 1800’s style library bar. After a couple of cocktails we retired to our room and watched some dearly missed Norwegian tv until we fell asleep. I haven’t seen (Norwegian) tv for a very long time and it was very nice and comforting.
Saturday we had a longer itinerary. It started with a breakfast in the 1700’s basement of the castle. There were no free tables so we got the secluded Le Chambre with a big round table and velvet curtains that separated us from the rest of the guests. It felt very fancy and VIP and just a pinch silly. I was granted a yoga session to go with my stay and Allan and I tried couples-yoga after breakfast. We went out in the sun filled Castle garden and got our zen going on a surprisingly warm October’s morning. It was truly peaceful and breathtaking.
Next thing on the list was of course the spa. I was the lucky one and had a aroma massage while Allan soaked in the pool and steam room. At the end of it all we felt like two fat kittens who had relaxed in the sun all day. After a walk in the neighbourhood forest it was time for dinner. Caviar, champagne and poussin, nothing short for the birthday girl this year.
On Sunday we were leaving, but we got to catch the afternoon tea for we went back to the real world. We got the old school treatment with small sandwiches, mini cakes and petit four, started with a glass of champagne of course. It wouldn’t be afternoon tea without champagne..right.
Anyway we had a blast. We felt like nobles and got so spoiled we should only eat rice for a week to calm down. Lovely weekend, great service and Worlds (Lol) is coming up. Life is kinda okay
