We were feeling a bit indulgent so we decided to go to the Peninsular Hot Springs in Rye. These springs were actually really cool and we had a lovely evening relaxing in the “magical water”.  The water is classified as a “Sodium Chloride Bicarbonate Spring”. The therapeutic benefits of bathing in this type of thermal mineral spring are said to include the alleviation of neuralgia, bruising, breaks, articular rheumatism, stiffness of the shoulders, skin diseases, recovery from fatigue, infertility and muscular complaints.

I think I am cured!

There were 6 different pools, all different temperatures, one of which was basically a human cauldron. Tim managed to get in though. There was also a sauna and a special wiggle machine. “Wiggle machine” is the technical name for a Zen Chi Massager, basically it wiggled your whole body from your ankles, it felt really weird but really good.

We managed to spend 4 hours there and only left because we were starving. Check out the pictures of Tim’s feet!
