One of the interesting things about the area is the abundance of natural hot springs. There’s an interesting mountain cave in place called Miskolctapolca where the water is a balmy 31C (88F) and contains a variety of aromatic minerals.
Many ancient cultures believe in the healing powers of these natural hot springs, especially to reduce bone and joint stress, ease respiratory infections, and relax the muscles.
On that note of health, this week’s first question is from G. Mitchell Sr.:
“Simon, I’m finding much useful information in the e-letters, but here’s a question I’ve not seen addressed – I’m just home after six weeks away. I now find that I’ve put on about five pounds/2.7 kilos. How the bloody do you keep fit whilst travelling full time?”
Nothing is more important than our health… and it’s true that traveling can take a toll. Eating out every night can lead to weight gain, and it’s easy to skip out on the gym. Fundamentally, though, staying healthy is a question of priorities and lifestyle.
