Let’s talk about the ultimate pampering experience! If you’re looking for a top notch spa weekend that features relaxation, privacy, and ultimate ambiance; Spa Walden is where you should plan to go! When planning a spa getaway at Spa Walden I would consider the Spa and Stay package which allows you one signature spa treatment per person for 2 people and a night in one of their spacious and luxurious guest rooms that feature huge luxurious Kohler massage bath tubs and massive Kohler showers. The rooms and Inn in general are incredibly designed and are truly a reward for any guest.

The service at the Inn and the spa was impeccable. The staff caters to your every need to make sure your stay is beyond unique and special. Not only that, but the spa tailors treatments to fit your individual needs so you experience the ultimate pampering.

Each Spa suites has its own Kohler bubble massage tub and a personal steam room and a Swiss shower for full-body shower massages. If booking a couples treatment, couples can enjoy in their spa treatment room an additional fireplace, extra-large hot tub, and a light lunch.

Overall, this is one of the best spas I’ve ever been to and I’ve been to first class spas around the world. This is truly a hidden gem on the outskirts of Cleveland, OH and I definitely recommend it for the ultimate Spa experience.

Traveling As A New Muslim Convert

 

|First stop in ‘ Traveling as a New Muslim Convert’ chronicle ✈️ Ireland 🇮🇪  |

Ireland is for lushes but also non-drinkers too. As aforementioned, I am now living in a Muslim household and will be raising Muslim children and one of the things that is prohibited in Islam is alcohol. As enlightening as it is being a new Muslim convert, it is more difficult than you expect not being able to pick up my usual glass of wine while watching The Bachelorette (don’t judge), Insecure, or This Is Us. So when my job invited me to Ireland to celebrate my achievements for my successes in the past year all I could think about was how am I going to experience the TRUE Ireland. How am I going to go pub crawling? What about the touristy Guinness factory tours? I’m a massive globetrotter and I always pictured me going to Ireland and getting to be apart of the Irish drinking culture. As necessary as I thought it was to enjoy Ireland, it wasn’t.

Ireland is a romance novel readers dream. The ancient lore, doughty castles, and tower houses nestled in an island surrounded by the Atlantic are more picturesque than you could ever imagine. Not to mention, the mythological traditions, traditional music, Irish literature, & historic sites will keep you busy and enraptured in love, history and humor as well. We went on boat rides and toured the Dingle Peninsula, the Wild Atlantic Way, and went on a horse and buggy ride in the Gap of Dunloe. It was truly a Game of Thrones watchers’ wildest dreams. After a few days in the beautiful region of Shannon, I was sure that traveling as a new Muslim convert would be no big deal. But then we went to Dublin.

Dublin seemed to be all about pub crawling and that was not an option for me. Having my Muslim husband with me definitely helped me counter my disappointment in not being able to do the brewery experience and tasting of Irelands famous beer (Guinness) or even one of a ton of Irelands famous whiskeys. While my friends were out and about drinking it up, pub crawling, and singing karaoke to Irish songs with Dublin locals, I must admit I felt like I was missing out and I was doubting how truly adventurous my travels could be not being able to drink. I mean, after-all alcohol is a big part of many cultures and truly apart of some countries’ history. I came up with something better though, something much better. A SPA DAY. Dublin has so many amazing boutique spas to choose from and my husband and I spent an entire day at one and no longer had any FOMO of the Dublin pub experience. After all the hiking and exploring of the Shannon landscape and terrain it was well needed anyway.

Basically, Ireland isn’t just for lushes, it’s for non-drinkers too and I can’t wait to go again. So for all my Muslim brothers and sisters, don’t be hesitant to include Ireland in your travel destination plans or bucket list too!

Now that I’m expecting, I realize how dramatic I was being for a week in Ireland, when I definitely can’t partake now and neither can most women for 9 months at some point in their adult life.

I must say the difficulties of being a new Muslim convert aren’t just about not being able to drink but in Ireland I was able to see how different my trips would be moving forward. While leaving and headed to the airport I knew my new travels wouldn’t be any less adventurous BUT then we arrived in Greece…….(stay tuned)
