What a racket these people are making!!!
We’re at a party the night before the wedding and everyone is wearing the dirndl (traditional dress worn in Austria, South Tyrol and Bavaria). Including Mummy! LOL!I wore a “trachtenmode” style scarf which matches Mummy’s outfitWe saw lots of old friends – Katja, who is the sister of Edgar (Mummy’s godson) Renata whom we visited in Berlin – and she loves dogs! Christina from Dusseldorf who has a dog called Oskar And we met this little “princess” And a handsome “prince” in a lederhosen I was a hit with the kids – they all wanted to stroke me But these people were making quite a racket going around the roomAt the end of the party we walked home through the fields
Before we got home safely to the castleWell, that was an experience.
P.s. Mummy was the only Chinese guest and the only guest with a dog! Think we’re doing ok to get noticed. LOL!
May’s comment: On the grounds of the Schloss Obermayerhofen is a 250-year-old “Gaisrieglhof” (farmhouse)The pre-wedding party was a traditional event (Austrian style) With the traditional knödelsuppe to startAnd the apfelstrudel for dessert!And traditional folk music to add to the atmosphereWe had a good time.And I learnt a lot about dirndls! But I forgot to read the notes about tying the bow before I went to the party!
Bow on dirndl apron tied on the left means they are single and flirting is also allowed. But it is not an open invitation or excuse for immediate physical contact.
Bow on dirndl apron tied on the right means they’re taken! Look but don’t touch!
And if the bow on dirndl apron is tied in the back – it means the woman is a widow or a waitress.
LOL! Well, now I know better – for the next time.
