Ranting, wacky restaurants and wellness vacations

Meaghan's Getaway Guide ~ Sept 3-9, 2012

I want to start off with saying a huge THANK YOU to all who have welcomed me to GoGirlfriend so warmly! I greatly appreciate it and you've all made me feel so comfortable. My first week has been amazing and I love how many of you I'm meeting through Twitter and Facebook. Keep the messages coming.

Meaghan ConeybeareMeaghan ConeybeareOne thing I have already learned here is that we LOVE to hear from YOU!

Every week I'll do a recap of some of my favorite tweets and Facebook updates that we at GoGirlfriend have put out. My hope is that I'll hear from many of you on your take of some of the stories, quotes, and tips we share too. So here we go...

How to complain when traveling and get results

Hotel LivingHotel LivingI rank this high on my list of favorite GG posts that Julia's written. We aren't always satisfied when we get to our hotel rooms or when we partake in an expensive meal out. These are great tips on how to express your concerns and get a fair compensation in return. Learn more about how to rant to get results.

The world's wackiest restaurants

wacky restaurantswacky restaurantsI really enjoyed this article on the top wackiest restaurants in the world. I love a little quirkiness and experiencing something completely out there. The one that caught my eye was the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant in Maldives. I'm a bit claustrophobic so not sure how long I would last in there, but how awesome would it be to eat under water?

Where to go for a solo wellness vacation

Mii Amo at the Enchantment ResortMii Amo at the Enchantment ResortIt was so great to have Anne Dimon from TraveltoWellness contribute this week to GG. I am all about the life changing experience that traveling solo can be and how it may also be the best time to relax at a spa. It looks to me like the Red Mountain Resort & Spa in Utah's Mojave Desert would not disappoint. I have officially put them on my places to travel list. Thanks Anne for sharing.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
  • On How to Choose a Cruise Ship Cabin on Your Next Cruise, Tinu said "Thank you for this post! I was dragging my feet about going on a cruise. Now that I know there's such a thing as a balcony cabin, I can't wait to book a trip!"
