The Ultimate Summer Getaway for Adults: Marijuana Camp

For most kids, summer camp is an adventurous experience that usually includes hiking, camping, swimming, and other outdoor activities. There aren’t many summer camps like these for adults to go enjoy, as they are expected to have outgrown that stage of their lives. CannaCamp disagrees, as they have set up a luxurious summer camp-esque resort for adults that promotes marijuana-related activities on the premise.

Located in Durango, Colorado where recreational marijuana is legal for consumption by adults over age 21, this is the first resort/camp to take full advantage of the recent Amendment that was passed. There are many cannabis related activities, including cannabis yoga, arts and crafts, cooking, and others. The resort opens July 1st and remains open until October 31st.

State of relaxation in Kerala, India

A lukewarm stream of oil spilled from the brass vessel hanging overhead, gently striking my forehead before breaking into tiny, shining rivulets that trickled into my hair.

For one hour, I laid there as the gentle pressure sent me in and out of cs. This was the ancient practice of shirodhara, an ayurvedic therapy believed to diffuse mental tension, ease headaches and improve sleep, with cosmetic benefits a plus.

While I don’t know about the truth of these claims, I do know it was likely the most relaxing 60 minutes of my life. In fact, my one week in Kerala was by far the most tranquil I have spent in India.

Far from the crazy pace of urban life, here well-being, healthy food and spirituality top the daily agenda with growing numbers of tourists cottoning to the state’s laid-back charms.

Less relaxing was the pummeling received at the hands of two therapists that afternoon as they pounded every inch of my naked body with heated bundles of herbs, a treatment called njavara kizhi purported to have anti-aging effects. But those wrongs were soon righted by a traditional, four-handed oil massage atop the vast wooden bed and, the next day, a massage performed by well-trained feet with the aid of ropes suspended from the ceiling.

Despite being overshadowed by nearby Grand Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, located along the Colorado River in Northern Arizona, features some of the most spectacular views in the Southwest.
