About Me


Travel around the world in 80 baths.


We write the blog "around the world in 80 baths: a global bathing excursion," in which we review different hotsprings, spas, hamams, onsens, rivers and bathhouses. We are couchsurfing now through the world looking for unique baths to soak, swim, and relax in.
