Wow, they totally surprised me. It was Saturday June the 23rd. My day started so unsuspicious. Sven and I were cleaned our apartment and taking trash to the recycling station. I had a quick lunch and than took the train to Zurich to meet Anja for a blogger event. I haven’t been to many events lately, but the spa event seemed like fun.
That day the tram wasn’t running because of a demonstration, but it was a wonderful sunny day so I walked. Anja was waiting outside and told me that everyone else had gone in already. I felt really bad for being 1 minute late and I hurried to get dressed.
Like all bloggers, Anja took her phone to the spa and began filming the event. Suddenly all these people jumped out at me. As I looked around, I noticed that my friends from all different parts of my life were right in front of me. I don’t know what surprised me more. Seeing all those friends together or the fact that my bachelorette party was happing now !!
It totally blew me away! I always thought my bachelorette party was going to be in a week, because Sven had accidentally let out a clue, so I was pretty sure I knew it. In retrospect, I just got played. I was so surprised that my brain actually took a moment to digest the situation. It was so overwhelming.
After our relaxing spa session, we dressed up and got ready for the next thing on the program. Again, I had no idea what was going to come. The girls had fun, giving me bad hints, asking me what I expected or what the worst thing would be to happen next.
I’ll tell you what happened. We all went from the spa to the Hotel Markgasse. As I entered the hotel room, I saw pink balloons flying around and silk robes hanging in the corner. Liridon (Anja’s boyfriend) smiled at me with his camera and said: Ready for a shooting? We all got dressed. I put on my white robe and veil and while we were taking pictures I saw my self in the mirror. All dressed in white. Is this really happen, I thought to myself. It was such a surreal moment.
We endend the shooting piling up on top of each other like a burger. Thats also the next thing we ate. Burgers! My friends know me well. I’m a burger lover, but I don’t think they knew that I had this exact restaurant on my „places to go“ – list for the longest time. It was delicious. After that we hit the clubs and ended up falling into our bed, late at night.
Big thank you to Anja and Sheila for organizing my surprise bachelorette party and to all my girls for being a part of this special day. Thank you so much!
