Each day began with a water treatment, a jet massage, or a hydrothermal wrap, and the professionals took the time to explain each and every operation. I hardly saw the days pass.
I decided to enrol in a participatory cooking workshop which helps its participants to create balanced meals, which is really important for my condition. I met Alexandra, the teacher, who introduced me to some amazing new ways to think about the taste and nutritional qualities of each category of food.
By the Tuesday I was getting along with Christine and Bernard, who both came by train from Perpignan airport, then by Bus for 1 € to Le Boulou. I think it's pretty handy, and I might do the same if I go again next year.
On Wednesday, we took a day trip to Barcelona, and the following morning we went strolling to the market in Céret. I swam in the sea at the beach in Argelès-sur-Mer, and went to Conflent on the Yellow Train, with spa treatments every morning and early evening!
On the day before departure, I went back to the Tourist Office to get the little gift promised with my Thermal Pass, a nice big "Le Boulou" mug for drinking pints of herbal tea! They also got me to fill in a satisfaction survey, and it was very easy to give top marks in each category!.
On last evening, the owners of my flat invited me over to their place for an aperitif on the terrace, and I finally got to taste the Rivesaltes Muscat, which was positively delicious.
The next morning I got up bright and early, looking forward to seeing my family.
The whole experience was fantastic on all levels, and I recommend it without hesitation!
