Cory Crowley says: November 18, 2010 at 7:55 am I’ve been to Iceland and the reason why they say it’s good for bathing is it’s really good for the skin.Most of the Icelanders have amazing skins as they have unpolluted air and water.Don’t worry even though it smells a bit bad,you won’t stink Mr.Strange guy who made this strange blog? Rick says: December 15, 2010 at 2:28 pm ‘Mr.Strange guy who made this strange blog?’ Que? Good to know about the stink. Not much to do. As long as everyone bathes regularly it should be no worse than a visit to Tibet. ;) Holly says: January 13, 2011 at 3:04 pm I’ve been to a hotel in Argentina that had thermal water from all its taps, and in the toilets and bidets. The steaming sensation of going to the bathroom was unique, and more than one person burned themselves in the bidets, which only had hot water! Bambi says: January 13, 2011 at 7:25 pm I’d love to visit that hotel, just for the novelty of it. I just happen to be going to Argentina in a week. Noelle says: August 1, 2012 at 11:43 am My grandparents lived in Alpaugh, California, and their water was full of sulfur. I never felt quite clean after bathing in it! My grandma did have very nice skin though, come to think of it. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
