  Natural hot springs at Saturnia
by sim1

In my must see tips I told you about Saturnia and the natural hot springs. It was wonderful to have this free spa treatment here, but there is one big disadvantage that I want to warn you about.

The wonderful warm water is sulphorous, which makes these baths so special. But as you might now, sulphor has this distinct smell of rotten eggs. And when you have bathed in this water, that's what you will smell like. Eeks! I've showered I think a dozen times that day after my bath, trying to get that odeur of me, but invane. The smell just gets into your skin and seems impossible to remove.

So remember: you might feel nice and renewed after these baths, but at the same time you might have the problem that your parfum is not strong enough to cover up the bad odeur of the sulphor ;-)
