“I was wandering down near the crazy Gaudi church in Barcelona when I came across a small day spa, tucked in a small alley.
Feeling spoiled by lots of great Spanish food, beautiful architecture and some retail therapy, I thought the perfect way to finish the day would be a massage.
The owner didn’t speak English and I don’t speak Spanish, but I saw a word on the menu that is universally recognised by women – chocolate.
So what followed was two hours of bliss, being massaged with warmed chocolate oil from head to foot. Just divine, wrapped in the scent of rich chocolate and my muscles melting under the therapists hands.
At the end I was craving a sugar fix and headed to a nearby restaurant for some churros and thick, lush, drizzly chocolate.
Pure decadence.” – Ali
