White mountains, even whiter butts. ...#Icelandwithfriends #skinnydipping#secretpool #mountainpool
A last (?) look at some of Europe's soaks enjoyed during the past winter. 
Above a blurry image of a quintessential soak in winter (or any season) on Iceland, here Seljavallalaug. 
Below, on the opposite side of Europe, it's deep in the south of Russia. And further south Georgia.

A nice (albeit with little new info) trip record on the hot spring of Prats Balaguer by onlylifeweknow (Feb. 19). A couple of pictures:

In the mountains in France, high up in the Pyrenees, we found the fountain of youth.A free hot spring/thermal bath far away from the civilization. We followed the rainbow In the snowy mountains On hairpin roads. After climbing the tough terrain and crossing rivers... We finally got to this spot. Nature is amazing. A waterfall with different levels, crazy hot water on the highest point and really wonderful temperatures a bit down. It felt like being in a spa, but better! There weren't many people there, just a few "hippies" that had their camp there, dream catchers hanging in the trees above. The sun was shining, the air was cold and made the water steam. Like a picture from a fairytale. We did like the few others their, took our bathing clothes off and enjoyed those natural pools naked, like the true hippies we are ;) This is probably one of the best places we have visited and we are defiantly going back!
Not far away are more natural springs such as the following.

More blogs and hot springs. 
Worldwidewohnzimmer (Dec. 27) heads for Termas de Santa Fe in Spains Andalusia:

'Zwischen diesen Plantagen führt eine von Schlaglöcherübersäte Sandpiste. Dieser Piste sind wir bis zum Ende gefolgt und waren am Zielort: Heiße Quellen in unberührter Natur. Ein Traum!'

'Wir sind jetzt seit ungefähr sieben Monaten unterwegs und benutzen fast ausschließlich unsere „Freiluftdusche“. Man kann sich nur schlecht vorstellen wie sehr wir uns auf dieses Bad gefreut haben. Im super heißen Wasser liegen und entspannen, endlich wieder ein Thermenfeeling. Herrlich! Wir waren mehrere Male im Wasser und obwohl einige Vans dort standen hatten wir den gesamten Swimmingpool immer für uns allein. Ein unglaublich tolles Gefühl, vorallem wenn die Außentemperatur gen null wandert'.

Swimming makes me crazy. But without it, I'd go insane.#hocempoletje #lejinemalenoreideje#iwantmyflipflops #wintertime #swiming#hotsprings #crazylittlethings #crazyideas

Despite the above (Slovenia), we now head to the many hot highlights on Iceland.

Icelandicnaturist tumblr tale, a hot spring from Iceland's southwest: 
I lost my best friend this week he was my first nudist friend and we explored many hot springs together. I owe him a lot, thank you N for introducing me to social naturism and being a great friend. I hope to see again one day. #naturism #sadtimes #socialnudism #hotspringsiceland

Got my own natural hot tub outside my apartment. This place is pretty sweet. Although outside is freezing so I still have to wear my wooly hat. The run back inside wasn’t fun ❄️ #frostandfire#hotsprings #gayiceland#bearsofinstagram#bearsontour #instabear #bears #gayholiday#wetbeard#wetbears #hairygay #hairychest#hairyman

farewell, 2017, i’m grateful for ya. for the snowboarding, the women’s march, new projects, my sister lauren’s graduation, establishing with @jtully, volunteering at my community radio station, shooting weddings, a summerful of great weekends with family & friends, swimming in rivers, hiking, standing up in my childhood friend’s wedding, bartending @coldmountaincafe, my first solo photo exhibition @42mapleartists, a group gallery show with @jtully, traveling abroad alone for the first time, exploring iceland, an amazing surprise weekend of friends from five (!!!) states, home for the holidays, & more snowboarding. 2017 was also about emotional conflicts, financial stress, body self-hatred, political despair, constant car chaos, battles with depression, & health issues that kept me from running the whole year. and yet, what a wild and precious life i have. there were and are a million little ways i failed my loved ones & myself, & lot of ways i tried to show up and be better. i often think about bailing on photography, to run out into the wild & never come back to civilization. but i’m not (yet) & i’m not making resolutions or promises to myself this year. the total reinvention cocktail can be intoxicating, but for me it’s always been toxic. the “new year new start” thing is a seductive illusion - as if i just had a little more discipline, i would charge forward & shed the flaws and failures of my old self, sailing into a brilliant unknown as some shining reborn being. not only is that impossible, it’s limiting. our journeys make us who we are. mistakes, and pain, make us human - and imperfections teach us empathy. our naked selves, not our curated ones, draw us together. vulnerability is a gift. what we do when we’re kicked and down defines who we are. in 2017, a lot of us felt got trampled. but it was a year of grappling, of dreaming, of reawakening. i don’t want to leave that behind. so i want to build on where i came from & keep climbing toward a better world & better work. old friends & new, favorite haunts & new adventures, inevitable failures, bigger dreams, same flawed, passionate, evolving mind & body. hello, 2018.

You what they say…when in Iceland 🤷🏽‍♂️-Found a super secluded hot spring. Got naked. Drank a bottle of wine. Rolled in snow. Laid down in a glacier water river. Great success 👨🏻-#iceland #hotspring #fullmoon #blindingwhite#coldAF #airdry #paleo
