The hot springs place was amazing for the price. It's this tiny town with natural hot springs. For $30 in the evening and even less during the day they pump the mineral water into private hot tubs for you.
The hot springs made our skin super soft. Plus how great is it to be in a hot tub overlooking a river with trees all around you. It was lovely and so inexpensive.
I got to see where Lo grew up, we drove all around, hiked and walked the dog to the coffee shop. Everywhere we went we saw mountains. So pretty. I've never lived by mountains before so it's really great to be around them. Although I did feel a bit nervous, not because lo isn't a good driver in the mountains, but just because I am so not used to curvy hilly roads.
All in all, it was a wonderful trip. And thanks to your advice and a bit of counsel I think we did pretty well with the dog.
