Felix writes “I’m here!” My first winter season…

I was born in Schwarzach on 23.12.2015, just before Christmas. I spent the first few hours of my life in hospital with my parents… I really enjoyed all the cuddling! So I also experienced my first Christmas in hospital – it was very nice, especially because there was a small Christmas party on the ward with music, a Christmas tree, cookies and punch. Unfortunately, Dad had to leave us in the afternoon, as the wonderful Christmas party was waiting for us at home with a fantastic festive menu cooked by my grandma for our lovely guests.

On 26.12.2015, the biggest arrival day of the whole winter season, I was finally allowed to go home! Dad picked mom and me up at the hospital and brought us home safely. The journey was very pleasant and the check-in also went smoothly ☺

Mom and I made ourselves very comfortable right away: we slept a lot, ate and changed nappies – unfortunately I also had to cry a lot in the evening because I had a bit of a tummy ache. Dad was always able to come and see us briefly in between – even when it was very stressful at the hotel. I was always very happy when I saw him and laughed at him straight away. I am generally a very happy baby and smile at every friendly person. That’s probably because my dear mom in particular always reminds me of this and says: “Life is so beautiful!”

After a few weeks, my mom took me to the hotel more and more often… I was very happy to meet all the lovely regular guests and also many new guests. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for the many gifts that were brought or sent! My parents were totally overwhelmed.

I always felt very comfortable in the hotel. Everyone was very nice to me and told me that I had such beautiful blue eyes. They say I look a lot like my dad. And dad looks like his dad and he looks like his dad… or what do you say? 4 generations at Barbarahof

As the ladies in our Team Barbarahof and my mom love dressing up, our employees have once again come up with something great for the Shrove Tuesday party. So we were all dressed up as Indians☺. Unfortunately, I wasn’t allowed to stay up that late, but Dad told me it was a fun party with casual live music and cocktail happy hour.

The hotel staff were always very happy when I visited them with my mom – I was even allowed to join the staff outing. My parents invite the whole team to dinner once a season – because they all work so well. We really have a great team!

My mom said that I needed a lot of fresh air, so we were out and about every day in winter. We often met lovely guests on a walk. Sometimes my mom worked up quite a sweat when there was a lot of snow on the hiking trail. Because despite the rather poor snow conditions at the beginning of the season, it snowed a lot from January onwards! According to my dad, the ski slopes were in top condition throughout the winter. I’m already looking forward to my first attempts at skiing… especially as I’ve already received my first pair of skis from some lovely regular guests! ☺

The winter season has of course been over for some time now, and we’ve already experienced our first mid-season together. We all really enjoyed the quieter time and did lots of things together, especially as a threesome!
As another great highlight, we celebrated my christening last weekend in Saalbach together with our family and lots of friends!

It was a wonderful day with lots of sunshine, lots of nice people and, above all, lots of fun!

So, now I can tell you that we will be opening again next Friday for the summer season. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me and look forward to welcoming you here in the summer!
