When the Once In A Lifetime Crew first contacted me about the blogger trip to Israel I immediately thought of the dead sea. You actually float in the water without even trying and getting into the water was so surreal. The second I thought about the things to do in Israel the first thought that came to my head was floating in the dead sea.
Not only is the dead sea an amazing thing to see but we also were able to visit the Masada fortress nearby which was a great piece of history to learn about. There is mud near the Dead Sea that is known for having exceptional qualities for your skin (much like the Blue Lagoon in Iceland). I was able to cover my entire body with it (look out for the picture soon). That sexy stud on the right is Chris from the theaussienomad.com
