The title of this section comes from time I spent in Japan a hundred years ago (back in 1996, I think it was) where I was introduced (by my lovely school friend, Karen) to the intricate laws of the Onsen and the hilarious use of Let’s as an advertising slogan: Let’s Wedding the poster said and for three weeks Let’s <<insert choice of noun>> became the running joke…Let’s Shopping, Let’s Lunch, Let’s Taxi and so…Let’s Spa!
Since then, I have been lucky enough to travel the world and while away many a blissful hour or three (or four or ten!) in some incredible spas; from the volcanic (if smelly) vibes of Rotorua, New Zealand to restorative relaxation at the Dead Sea, Jordan and ancient atmosphere in Bath, England.
I often wonder (usually while lounging in a jacuzzi) how I could make a living from this…is there such a thing as a professional spa-er?! Or maybe, I ponder, I could create my own (a place that borrows the best bits from each)…one day perhaps!
In the meantime, I will appease myself by sharing the good, the bad (though every spa, so far, has had a silver lining) and the downright AMAZING with anyone who cares to read.
Oh, and I’m always open to suggestions for my must spa bucket list, so please feel free to send recommendations!
