"I've been to two banyas. My favourite of the two is called Steamul Sauna, in Mississauga, Ontario (west of Toronto). They have two Russian saunas, one at 85C and one at 100C, a dry, Finnish sauna, and a Turkish steam room.…"
"Well, I'm pretty late to the party, as I just saw this post now, but thanks for posting it Matt! My name is also Matt and I am also in my mid-thirties, and I seem to be a perma-bachelor.
