Depending on what time of year you travel, there might only be small amounts of water in each pool, but even just soaking your heels in the water will relax and soothe (not to mention, supposedly heal everything from varicose veins to arthritis!)

    Majestic. That’s the word I could describe to those places. I think that Europe is everyone’s favorite continent. I’m going to Budapest this summer, heard that is an amazing city as well. Great read.
