Fun Things for Couples to Do – Foot Spa in Spain

Recently I was asked this question and thought I’d share it with my readers here on the blog..

What are some of your personal favourite and memorable travel experiences from around the globe?

One of my favorite and memorable travel experiences was going to a foot spa in Spain. The name of the spa was “The Foot Doctor” I walked by, saw the name and the fish tanks and thought that they were healing fish. I was curious so I walked in. The spa owner asked me if I wanted to do “it.” I asked, “do what?” I still didn’t get it. She said have the dry skin removed by the fish. I had heard of this but never seen it. I love new experiences when I travel so I talked my traveling gals into doing it too and we had a blast. It tickled! We giggled! There were 75 fish in the tank. They cleaned and sanitized our feet and checked for any cuts or sores. (if you have any they don’t allow you to do it) It tickled when they sucked on a new spot. After the treatment my feet tingled. I was so surprised that it really did work. My husband felt my feet and said they were really soft. I would do it again and again but we don’t have them here.

Fun Activities for Couples – Geocaching

Geocaching vacations are the new rage. I have friends who divide a state into areas and do the geocaching for all those areas. The combination of Earth, hiding, and technology made geocaching an excellent term for the activity. The rules for the finder were simple: “Take some stuff, leave some stuff.”

Vacation Destinations for Couples

Recently I was asked this question and thought I’d share it with my readers here on the blog..

1.What are the most popular places in the world to visit?

The ones that I always hear is: Paris, Hawaii, and Niagara Falls. I think these are great but everyone’s favorites are the places that they have been that have had an emotional experience for them. Some where that touched them, excited them, where they experienced something new and different or somewhere that they interacted with the people.

I loved Paris because we went to a tour – The Catacombs and the underground sewer tours. I loved sitting out in the street cafes. That was what made Paris for me.

One of my favorite places in the world are Holland and Riviera Maya Mexico. Holland hit the top of my list when we spent time walking along the canals visiting with the people and eating in the local pubs.

Riviera Maya on the other hand is in the top of my list because it is where we go for romantic beach vacations.

At the very top of my list of favorites is Egypt. It is just so overwhelmingly overwhelming! The history, the grandness and the gracious people.

But all of the I think should be the most popular places because I loved them so much.
