Another lifetime ago I went to the American spa Canyon Ranch in Massachusetts. I went once when the weather was warm and you could hike ans swim outside and another time when there was snow so you could cross country ski. It was absolutely divine. You could take unlimited yoga classes,swim,take cooking classes,drawing and painting classes etc. I remember the lighting was low and the conversations were hushed. Most people there were there to chill out. The food was organic,no alcohol served,and I think they may even have a cook book out now. If you didn't see what you wanted on the menu you could ask the chef to prepare it. I went with a very good friend who is actually my sons godmother. We met for breakfast and then sometimes for dinner. We both kind of did our own thing. The bedroom we shared was beautiful and very restful. It was pricey but well worth it. I would love to go back.

yea george, never mind.
i heard that you get sun up there, for about a week or so, round august? mustn't grumble.

meanwhile, in oz:
mango season, cherries are ripe, apricots and asparagus, avocados. just spent a weekend with my pregnant daughter and gifted cook. we bought a huge basket of aussie fruit and veg and then just sat there, in the sun outside her house, scoffing avocado dip, asparagus quiche, fruit salad with ice cream, yum. baby liked it too, did a couple of little dances, inside mummy's tummy.

went out today and ordered a lovely lobster, tiger prawns and scallops, for christmas. salads, crusty sourdough bread and veuve cliquot with that, no-one complaining, here...
:>)
keep warm, dear george
your best roo

I once booked a package, but not all in, when I went to Marrakech last year. It was great to have a base and from there I ventured out each day and really explored the area. I think these cheap deals can be great especially if you are a single traveller. I agree that sometimes it is nice to know where your bed and next meal are coming from so you can focus on the museum or other delights.

and can you please stop all the posts about sun, lovely fruit and other such. I am struggling through this winter season only with the delights of Christmas festivities and seing family and friends. By January I need to have made my mind up where to flee to!

@to ALL,
What is difference between All-Inclusive and package holidays?
Tourism.From satanic mills to sundecks.
Having moved into package holidays, TUI finds it must change again.
