Gabrielle was full of glee as we arrived in Karlovy Vary for our ‘health experience’. Course leader Anna Novak was the queen of ‘getting healthier by hard work’ on YouTube and my health-obsessed girlfriend had booked us in for a week-long spa holiday at her spa, Peace & Tranquility Resort. I’d have much rather have came here and indulged on cuisine but I kept that to myself.
“Anna, this is my girlfriend Kate.”, Gabrielle said, introducing me to Anna.
“We watch your videos on YouTube all the time.”, she added.
She watches. I sit there with a doughnut.
Anna and I shake hands while I long for the imaginary doughnut in my head.
Soon we are in our room in the spa.
“After the first day, you’ll enjoy it.”, Gabrielle says, giving me a kiss as we unpack.
“Yeah.”, I agree.
Ah, the things you do when you’re in love.
