Imagine a bath
Imagine a warm bath
Imagine a warm bath in a tub the size of a Walmart parking lot

Add in some unique minerals and geothermal energy and you’ve got the blue lagoon near Reykjavik in Iceland. That was easily one of the most luxurious experiences I’ve had in a long time. I stayed in for about an hour, but could gladly have stayed longer.

Had a great time here in Berlin.  I had only 3 days to see what I could, but I’m sure I could easily spend 3 months seeing all that I’d want to.

Amsterdam was, well, a lovely city…  I just didn’t much care for it.

I just spent 3 days in Paris, and didn’t get to do near as much as I would have liked to.  I should have managed my time there better, but I enjoyed myself nonetheless.

I’ve had two full days in Florence, during which I saw the Duomo, the Arno river, the statue of David, the town of Fiesole and lots of tiny cars.

On the train now to Florence, having spent the past few days in Rome, Italy.  I had some definitely negative experiences here, but that doesn’t overshadow the fact that Rome is an amazing city.  I wish I’d had more time to spend here but alas, I must move on.

After hearing about it online a few times, and finding one nearby my flat in Barcelona, I decided today to try out one of the foot spas with the Doctor Fish that nibble off the dead skin on your feet.

It was an interesting sensation, having a dozen or so little fish per foot just going to town and having a big meal of dead Adam skin. I have fairly sensitive feet, and it only elicited a ticklish chuckle out of me once or twice. So if you’re ticklish and have denied doing this, I’d say that shouldn’t stop you.

I am fish food. 🙂

Slept until noon, got lunch at “The World Famous Frankenstein” pub and wrote out this week’s postcards, then toured the (actually) famous Holyrood Palace.
