Going to the spa for the first time can be a daunting experience. It's supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable, but when going into that change room on your own and having to prepare for your first massage can be stressful and confusing. Dave and I have enjoyed many spa experiences from luxury retreats to the downright quirky during our 18 years of travelling.
They pretend to have kind of separate place for nudist but actually in changing area and commun Since I had a few hours to kill in Brussels after hours and hours of walking, thought I would spend it either in the hotel to rest or to enjoy the weather and go somewhere. Make sure you bring in a passport as they asked me for ID when I arrived.
Nothing new about being told off, as even liberal Berlin, to which I recently moved, is full of baffling rules. For the Germans, this is as normal as a trip to the supermarket. As in Scandinavia, saunas are revered here for their relaxing effects, circulatory benefits and power to make you sweat a pint in 10 minutes.

Nudity in a coed sauna takes some getting used to, but after a couple minutes it really feels like nothing is out of the ordinary. If you show up at a hot pool in a bathing suit, who is to say when the last time that suit was cleaned? What bacteria is in that suit?
The Germans take their spa culture pretty seriously. Since Roman times, when the spa culture first developed, spas have been recognised for their healing properties and contribution to mental and physical health, so much so that the German healthcare system regularly subsidises treatments as a preventative measure against illness. Yep, you read that correctly.
This is a Lovely hotel in a great location. We were a large group who went to Berchtesgaden to attend a family party who live there and we all had the same 2 complaints; 1: there seems to be a prob with electronic keys, on a number of nights we had trouble getting back into the hotel and there was no staff or security to let us in, and some of our party had trouble trying to get into their room at night, one person ended up having to sleep in the lobby as his key would not work, 1this is a big issue they need to address. It's a shame, as we are frequent visitors to this area and the Hotel is lovely.
I'd like to say that my experience at the Korean spa was relaxing, but I think that a more accurate description would be that it was interesting. Interesting to see so many women comfortable in their own skin, interesting to see women going about their cleansing rituals without giving a second thought to their bodies or anyone else'sinteresting to observe the culture within the entire space -- within the different rooms, interesting to spend the day with a group of friends uninhibited by social norms. Spending time at a Korean spa is a vastly different experience than spending time at a traditional American spa.
A Newport News man has been charged with illegally taking nude or partially nude videos of 81 men and three minors at a northern Virginia spa and posting some for sale on the internet. Twenty-eight-year-old Kwame Anderson is facing three felony counts for unlawful filming of a minor and misdemeanor charges for unlawfully filming an adult and unlawfully disseminating video. Fairfax County Police said Wednesday the videos were taken on a cell phone at Spa World in Centreville, a popular Korean spa in which nudity is mandated in certain sex-segregated areas.
In September I will be in Berlin as part of a solo trip and really want to try out the Liquidrom because of the reviews and salt pool. I know that this is a mostly naked spa and I have no problem undressing in public. However, as an 18yo solo female I was wondering if this would be a good idea, i. Thank you :.
