Travel Blog: Fish pedicure

On July 5 I went on an adventure to “get lost” in London. I was able to check one thing off my bucket list that day, ride a double decker bus. Somehow during our groups exploring, we ended up in a fun area called Camden Town. There were shops of food, products and services. I ate some Turkish food, among the numerous choices available to me. The shops were amazing, ranging from music to clothing shops, with everything in between. One particular service that I found fascinating was this one called Zoola Fish. Initially, I was bit freaked out by what the service was. It is basically a fish pedicure.

The fish suck all the dead skin off your feet, making them smoother than any pedicure I’ve ever had. The fish are called Garra Rufa, which are a toothless fish. The primary reason I dove in and got this pedicure was because Diana was getting it. The sensation of the fish sucking on your feet is peculiar. It is a very ticklish feeling, almost like when your feet are “waking up” from being “asleep.” I absolutely loved it and really wish the United States had something like this so I could do it again.
