Yesterday, after work, we went to the farm to de-stress, even for just a day trip. I put “detox” because it’s more if an emotional detox than a literal one. For reasons that I’d rather not expound on, Holy Week was uncharacteristically stressful for me. It was a difficult long weekend for me, even if we didn’t have work for 4 days. Anyway, I really needed a day to get away from it all, to just relax, and so we did. We got to Lipa around lunchtime, and we did nothing all day but swim, eat healthy food, and lounge. I really love the drinks. There’s the lemon + honey + cayenne pepper drink that I looove. It’s steeply priced at 350 per glass, but I love it! Nothing really to tell since we mostly just recharged with all the serene vibes we fed off of. We capped off the day with a reflexology massage under the stars. I have a love-hate relationship with reflexology. It’s nowhere as relaxing as the swedish massage with it’s soothing strokes, but more of pressing pressure points which at times could actually verge on pain. But I also love it because it’s a necessary pain. After the massage, I was relaxed, but I was also spent, as if I ran a marathon or something. In the car, I was completely knocked out. I didn’t wake up until we got home. Then I practically crawled upstairs to my bed only to be knocked out again. It was just less than a day, but we’re really like salmon swimming back to their birthplace everytime we go back to The Farm. It’s quite expensive, and it’s not for everyone (especially if your idea of a resort is fun and frolic), but if you crave fir peace and quiet and tranquility and serenity and a kick-ass spa treatment (and if your budget is plump and ready to go), then The Farm at San Benito is for you. But it’s back to reality for me. Time to earn again so I can afford another go at one of our favorite resorts.
