Ask Susie: Spiritual Renewal


I just turned 50 in April, and am looking for the ultimate spa/spiritual renewal trip of a lifetime, anywhere in the world, and need help choosing my destination! I’ve looked everywhere and am now more confused than ever.

I am looking anywhere between July 9-August 7 for around a two-week stay.
