|first time at the fish spa|
And, bam! Just like that, approximately 400 little fishes swam away from me as fast as they could. And proceeded to cower in the corners of the spa, refusing to come near my feet. As I sat in confusion, Nick and the three little Thai workers were cracking up and could not stop laughing. Nick asked one of the workers what was going on, and she stated that this had never happened before. We had just washed my feet, so they should be clean…but apparently, there was something about my feet they did not like! We decided to try the fish spa next door, so I hopped over there….same thing. So, that was the day where I got completely, 100% shot down by about 1,000 fish. After failing to get my fish fix at two spas, I called it a day. Perhaps I would try again later…
|success a week later!|
The sensation was definitely weird at first, especially when the fish would nibble in between your toes. It was nearly impossible to look at my feet, because if I did I would burst out laughing! During the experience, I realized that I was actually fish bait- every time I pulled my feet out of the water and then resubmerged them, a cloud of fish would come swarming! While the fish spa was fun to try out, I'm not sure if I would do it again. But hey, when in Rome, right? Have you ever tried a fish spa or other unique treatments while abroad, and what did you think of them?
