If January is getting you down, here are 5 places around the world that offer their own unique slices of happiness.
Health Land Spa & Massage, Bangkok
The Sathorn branch of the Health Land Spa & Massage chain fills one of the city’s few remaining stately old homes, it is surrounded by the glass and steel offices towers of Thailand’s corporate set, a short walk from Bangkok’s equally hectic nightlife. When the house was constructed, Sathorn Road would have been a country hideaway from a much smaller city. Now it still feels like seepage from the city’s persistent energy. Beautiful, simple, and affordable, Health Land is where individuals can stay for a nippy foot massage or a long order of reviving treatments. The therapists are all professionals and are broadly trained in the Thai traditional massage techniques intended to discharge the energy that gets confined in the body during the tedium of day-to-day life.
Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn, Owensboro, Kentucky
People have a habit of being so much choosey about their barbeque, but the Moonlite has presented out a place that everyone respects. What started as a small wayside restaurant has fully-fledged into a landmark, well-known for its hickory-smoked mutton. People who recall the 30-seat place that Moonlite started as may not recognize the 350-seat end that it’s become, but it’s still a family business culminating meat the way they have continuously done, in a way that palates like home.
Cherry blossom season in Kyoto, Japan
Along Kyoto’s Okazaki Canal ,In early April, cherry blossoms bloom. The city is well-known for its good reputation, but along the channel, a trail passes below the trees just right beside the water, which reflects the flowers back up. The promenade is like walking through a pink flower-patterned tunnel, but only for a while each year. This is a happiness that has to be apprehended when the moment is just right..
Scientists say that chocolate actually do prompt chemical substances in the brain that make individuals feel very happy. Some studies show that a dark chocolate benefits with cardiac roles of the heart and memory of the brain. But there’s chocolate, and then there’s Mary — the virtually century-old chocolatier on Brussels’ Rue Royale. Mary Delluc began her business in 1919. Her character for testing standards made her a chocolate source to the kings. Today, there are other branches everywhere in Belgium, and even one in Ohio, where anyone can enjoy her little bites of pleasure, with caramel, pralines, almond paste or liqueurs.
