    Resort Towns in Europe



    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resort_town
    A resort town, often called a resort city or resort destination, is an urban area where tourism or vacationing is the primary component of the local culture and economy. A typical resort town has one or more actual resorts in the surrounding area. Sometimes the term resort town is used simply for a locale popular among tourists. The term can also refer to either an incorporated or unincorporated contiguous area where the ratio of transient rooms, measured in bed units, is greater than 60% of the permanent population.
    Generally, tourism is the main export in a resort town economy, with most residents of the area working in the tourism or resort industry. Shops and luxury boutiques selling locally themed souvenirs, motels, and unique restaurants often proliferate the downtown areas of a resort town.

    BC (Before Children), when I had more discretionary money, I went down to Montecatini Terme for three days. It's gorgeous, but most of the waters taste absolutely foul, and I'm not the type for lying around doing nothing while I'm packed in mud or coated with stinky, brown or green goop. It's supposed to be relaxing, while I start pining for mental stimulation. I'd even settle for CNN. :) I also didn't have liver trouble, to my knowledge, so I guess it was wasted on me.

    In Santa Cesarea Terme you can see whiter patches of water in the sea, it’s caused by Sulfur.
    Swimming inside these white patches supposely is beneficial to damaged skin. (it might be good for the skin, stings the eyes a bit, but it’s free, just jump in the water.)
    There was an abandoned Sulfur mine, inside the smell was so strong that not everybody could tolerate.

    And did you show signs of improvement in the areas which concerned her? :)

    I remember then Maciamo created a Chinese forum. After some time, some Korean members requested for a Korean forum as well. Then, there were these white men who love Japanese women protested that they did not want to turn this into some United Nations forum or something.

    I went away for some time, I took time off this forum. I came back. I discovered that the Chinese and Japanese forums are no longer active.

    I think your wife is Japanese. I think you were one of those active members who are still active today. Except that, the Japanese and Chinese forums are no longer active.

    European men who love Japan, usually love Japanese women.
