"Get away from the city and relax," they said. Sure, you thought, huffing and puffing up hiking trails and sleeping on hard ground sounds like the perfect vacation. It’s not that you don’t like the clean air or that you don’t have a positive attitude. It’s just that you like having your city amenities, and your idea of "roughing it" is sleeping on the couch. But now the masseuse is working on your shoulder muscles and finding knots you never knew you had...and you can feel the stress flowing out of you. After a facial and a mani-pedi, you’re going to be walking on air. Your weekend has already included comfy lodging, great food, and scenic vistas. But now you feel amazing, and you’re ready for more. Maybe some light shopping…
