Happy Tuesday
Just in time for the Mother’s Day weekend, our friend tijlover found this cool getaway idea

While many of you may have had spa treatments in the past . . . Didja know?

In Bangkok, there’s a fish spa where you sit on the edge of a large water tank with a half dozen other people. 1000's of tiny fish called Kangal rush over to each pair of dangling feet, ready to nibble away your dead skin. The experience has been described as a pleasant sensation, a combo foot rub/pedicure.


*If you don’t have the time or $ to fly to Bangkok, you can always create your own spa using your bathtub or a wading pool.

DISCLAIMER:
Do make sure though that you use fish like
and not

Yeah, but then you will have to worry about whose feet you are eating in that fillet.
