  1. These all look divine. There is nothing as relaxing as a wellness escape. As a big fan of yoga and of Thailand, Upni Duniya sounds beautiful and relaxing. Being on the beach also offers me the ultimate relaxation – as nothing is better than looking out over the ocean.

  2. Would love to go on some sort of wellness, or yoga retreat one day – I bet it’s such a great experience. I’ve wanted to take a holiday of that sort ever since I read ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ hahaha. The Sicily villa looks gorgeous, I’m instantly drawn in by that one – perhaps it’s the hundred acres of nature that surrounds you! Sounds beautiful

    1. Interesting reaction to “Eat, Pray, Love.” It’s a film that everyone wants to watch, especially if they are a keen traveller.

      Also more and more of us are leading such busy and hectic lives that we are desperately in need of some “Me Time” and a lot pampering.

      The film’s visually stunning but the characters and the plot just don’t work. Once, whilst I was working, I played it with the sound muted, just so that I could look up every now and again to enjoy the travel shots.
