This past weekend I attended a Bachelorette party for my friend, Michaela. We did some wine tastings, had a dinner out, and went to the bar at the Blue Mountains in Collingwood. It was a great time. On Sunday morning, we went to the Scandinave Spa, and now I am craving going back.
The Scandinave Spa is a bath spa. There is a steam room, a sauna and a couple cold pools and hot pools. You are supposed to spend 15 minutes in a heat source and then get into the cool pool to lock in the heat. Then you relax outside on one of their chairs.
It was a beautiful day and so we stayed for about three and a half hours. We did the whole rotation a number of times, trying out each of the heat sources. I may have gotten slightly sun burnt despite the fact that I did put on sunscreen.
It was uber relaxing though, and a great activity for a nice day. You are cut off from the world with no cell phone to distract you. I just want to go back with a good book. Instead I'm sitting inside at work and time is moving slowly.
