|The futuristic design Caldea Spa in the heart of Andorra|
But when in Andorra ... one of the feature attractions is Caldea, said to be Europe's largest health spa. So I booked three hours at the facility, including 20-minute massages for each of us.
Had no idea what to expect. Would we be in the same room, on side-by-side tables, or in separate rooms? Would we have a male masseur or female masseuse? Would we be semi-clothed or nekked?

After the massages, we returned to the huge indoor pool, hot tubs, and a variety of other wet and dry sensations. My favorite was the Roman baths (the 36-degree Centigrade one, not the 14-degree C) and the infrared lamp loungers, where our view through the windows was the surrounding mountains, blue sky and clouds. We passed on the Scandinavian ice baths.
I managed the weekend's one klutzy move, inadvertently stepping into the decorative pool opposite the downstairs reception (I was videotaping the beautiful lobby and stairs, not watching where I was going.) D-L probably posted something about drying my sneaker on her blog: http://theexpatwriter.blogspot.ch/.
