Yesterday we went to Munich but the weather was really bad… raining and cold! So we just did an overview of the old center which is pretty nice even under the bad weather. Because it’s Christmas season, there are markets everywhere. They all look similar and sell traditional snacks and ornaments.
There is an important culture of expresso coffee. Everywhere you go there’s expresso coffee and many people have also expresso machine at home. I probably have 2-3 expresso per day. Cappuccino is my favorite! love the foam!
Then we went to the biggest Sauna Thermal in Europe:Therme Erding. Mara told me that it’s a great place, it makes wonder to the skin and hair, it’s big, it’s luxurious, it’s fun, but she didn’t tell me the most important part: EVERYONE GOES NAKED so I HAD TO BE NAKED TOO!!! No underwear, no biki, nothing at all!!!! WOOOOO!!!!! I didn’t have much time to react and mentally prepare myself (which helped a lot). We just got in and I saw naked man and woman everywhere! shock again but finally accepted the fact that I had no scape!
As you can imagine I was not allowed to take pictures, so here are some from their website.
There are 18 saunas with different themes and temperatures, from the cool 95°F to 212°F. A rose sauna and a citrus sauna provide aroma therapy, the meditation sauna offers a place to retreat. The Finnish log cabin sauna has impressive kelo wood walls and a fireplace. Many themed showers and cold tubs help to cool down after all the heat and steam.
We spent four hours there and went to like 6-7 different thematic saunas, the big thermal pool, the water park that has 12 thrilling high-speed rides, including Europe’s longest water lide (320 m). At first I tried to hide myself and avoided eye contact with others, but after an hour or so, all inhibitions were gone and I was totally enjoying myself.
Being naked is a NO-NO for many people, but actually it’s nothing wrong with it, everything is in our mind and what others tell us is normal. If everyone gets naked, that’s the normal then! It was really a fun experience, transitioning from being ashamed to feeling liberated!
Q: Have you ever been naked in public place? If not, would you?
