Summer is a really good season for fasting holidays as at this time we are less likely to have a need for heavy meals, we like so much in Winter. It is natural that in Summer, we drink more water and juices, therefore fasting in this season is not as unpleasant as it might be in Autumn or Winter, when it is more likely to crave for hearty meals. SpaDreams offers a wide range of fasting holidays in Europe and beyond and if you are looking for an interesting fasting holiday, spadreams.com is definitely the right address. Germany is the best fasting destination as main fasting techniques were originated there and they have evolved over time. No matter if you have fasted before or if you are thinking of your first experience with fasting, we are sure you will find our ideas inspiring.
