National Trust: Blicking Estate

Today, I had to visit Blickling Estate, a nearby National Trust property, for membership training. After the training, I popped around the garden for about 1/2 hour taking photos. I took about five minutes in the 123 room house, but thought I’d really visit it with more time. There is a lot of things to do there & I’ll definitely be going back with the kids soon.

One thing I’ve found that all the National Trust properties I’ve been to have these amazing trees.  Also, pretty gardens, huge house, cafe with local-sourced products which sounded yummy.  Oh and an added bonus, the kids will love the garden croquet, a huge connect four game, huge chess and so much space to run & explore.

Amazing & HUGE colander

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
