One of my favorite ways to create magic moments for myself is to melt in a really hot tub of water. Dear hubs doesn’t see the appeal, so I’m always on my own when I do. And that’s perfect. Because, as I said, I like to melt into the water and let all the tensions and stresses of the day seep out of my pores. That, to me, is the perfect way to spend a few hours.
I’ve found special places all around the world to rejuvenate my soul with a good soak. In a snowy mountain village in Japan, off the edge of the Appalachian Trail in the US, on a hill overlooking a riverbank in Botswana. The list goes on and on. I don’t soak very often, so each time feels extraordinary.
What about you? What do you do to pamper yourself from time to time?
I too am a fan of hot springs/hot tubs as you know we have one and use it almost nightly
So when we travel I look for natural hot springs/spas…one of the most fun was a BeerSpa in Prague…overall during our travel Bali bar none had the best and also the cheapest spa/pampering experiences.
The past couple of years have been absolutely non stop for me with having 2 jobs, starting a small business, helping run a dog rescue, and caring for my mom who is unwell. It’s very rare I ever have a moment to myself to do absolutely nothing. So I pamper myself by doing just that, nothing! Cuddling my dog on the couch and binge watching Netflix without looking at my computer screen or answering emails/calls is what I call a pampered night haha.
The Cascate del Mulino hot springs which sits just outside the small village of Saturnia on the grounds of an old mill. Holding at a steady temperature of 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit (37.5 degrees Centigrade), the vibrant sulphuric water spills down the hillside, creating delightfully relaxing open-air “pools.” Saturnia and its springs share a rich history, dating back to the 20th century B.C.
And if that’s not enough… just down the road is the fabulous harmonious five-star spa resort Terme di Saturnia with a spectacularly scenic GEO-Certified championship golf course. This resort is near to the fascinating hill towns, yet secluded in 120 hectares of Tuscan countryside and you can leave the busy world far behind!
