The Dead Sea

One of the most unique experiences I've had was swimming in the Dead Sea. There is really nothing like it. The Ocean's salinity is 3.5 percent, whereas the Dead Sea's is over 30.0 percent. Insanity. You can't help but float! In fact, you can stand in the water without any possibility of sinking. Awesome.

Salt buildup on the shore


Supposedly the mud on the shore is really good for your skin. Some of us decided to try it out!

So much fun :)
