Clad only in a lacy black bra and panties at Wi Spa–a journey into a Korean fantasy

The gorgeous women's area at Wi Spa

Clad only in a lacy black bra and panties, my Korean therapist at Wi Spa worked on my body like a pro, scrubbing it clean and silky. She spoke little and understood even less, but we didn’t need to communicate as she pummeled me to a virtual pulp during a 90 minute Buff & Massage at the most unusual spa (www.wipausa.com) near downtown Los Angeles.

One thing is certain, Koreans take body scrubs and massages very seriously.

A disgruntled diva grouses about a bad First Class service on American Airlines

The Diva on the go, as my readers well know, rarely flies coach. I will use mileage and money to avoid sitting in the back of the bus. However on one recent flight the system backfired on me. Now my husband says it’s not worth the price of an upgrade. Hopefully this was just one instance of a cranky flight attendant.

Here’s the story as reported on my LA Travel Examiner page: http://www.examiner.com/travel–diva-in-los-angeles/patti-pietschmann, you really should read it before you plunk down cash or mileage to upgrade.
