Well quite simply the answer is fish! On an insurance convention trip to Thailand a group of ladies decided to hit the shopping area in Phuket for the purpose of experiencing the phenomenon of the fish spas. Although this was an all-girls excursion but there was one of our male colleagues who also wanted to try this out so we decided he could come along and be one of the girls for night.
We paired up, paid our money, stripped off our sandals, rolled up our pants and put our feet into big tanks filled with tiny fish. It wasn’t long before they all migrated to our feet and started to nibble. It’s a real experience, probably something I wouldn’t do again but definitely something different and one of those things you should try if you are going to Thailand. It was not long before this strapping 6 foot something man’s man, let out a high pitched squeal, then spent the next 10 minutes giggling, screaming and squirming like a little girl being tickled. It was so funny that people were stopping in the streets to see what all the commotion was about. What travel experiences have you faced that had you squealing like a two year old on Christmas morning or squirming like a worm? We would love to hear your stories. Helen Dorling CFO VLLC Aust
