UNBELIEVABLE PLACES IN THE WORLD 10

The slot canyon located in Arizona consists of two photogenic sections called the Crack and the Corkscrew. Formed by the erosion of the Navajo Sandstone, has been formed as the rain water eroded the sandstone to create a marvellous texture and the characteristic ‘flowing’ shapes in the rocks. Very popular with photographers and sightseers, the canyon is accessible only with a permit since 1997 from the Navajo Nation. The Upper Antelope Canyon is more frequented by tourists as the entrance is at ground level and the canyon is filled with beams of reflected sunlight.

Cheap Travel: Saving Money on the 10 Best Winter Travel Spots

1. DEN – Denver

Aspen and Vail are the cities that come to mind most often when considering Colorado ski destinations. However, Dortha Vela of All About Travel told me these Colorado cities “are two of the most expensive ski destinations.” Plus, it turns out they’re not even that popular when compared to the capital city of Denver — perhaps for that very reason. Denver takes first place in our list of the most popular cities to visit in winter. And there’s plenty to do there besides ski, all at a reasonable cost. What to do: Aside from the close to 30 ski resorts in the city alone, you can also visit the famous Red Rocks Park and amphitheater for breathtaking views and great music, or the nearby Rocky Mountains State Park. How to save: Flights to Denver become more expensive the closer it gets to ski season, so if you plan on booking a trip to the snowy city, locking in a flight now will ensure you save hundreds of dollars. Colorado’s tourism website also has a section dedicated to aggregating deals on travel and attractions in the city.

Sweet Relief – Top 10 global spa trends for 2012

As a massage therapist for over 20 years I always love hearing the spa trends for the year. I am hopeful that more people will learn the health benefits of massage and not see it as a luxury item. All people from all walks of life benefit from massage.

Let’s explore some of the different spa trends for 2012:

1. Feet Focus – Reflexology – Foot Massage

On the rise are multi-treatments focused on the feet. Specific work on the foot due to high-heel pain.

Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas offers a Shanghai foot massage.

La Costa Spa now has a Reflexology Path at their Carlsbad Resort in San Diego.

Great for inflammation and pain reduction.

You might start getting facials and noticing that there are more icy masks and cold applications being used.

Austrian spa designer Thermarium is expected to launch a “snow shower” this year. You will be able to choose between a light snow, medium snowfall and a blizzard.

 

3. Wellness & Beauty Coaching – Helping people make long-term life changes

You may find that some spas will now have more “fitness coaches” available to work with you on your fitness and health.
