The Dead Sea

On Thursday and Friday my boyfriend and I went to the Dead Sea for a two day trip.

I floated in it, which was a strange experience. Somehow, though, I'd expected to float even more easily than I did. It was nice nonetheless.

We also went to a beautiful nature reserve where we went hiking in the mountains. There were also natural springs and waterfalls there. I'd never seen anything like it before - it seemed almost magical.

Cute, little animals like this one were running around everywhere.

As well as going hiking and floating in the dead sea, we also had a mud bath - which was fun, but we forgot to take pictures of it.

You are like a fair maiden in the middle of a desert and then in a lush garden!! Great red jumper. I love your hair that way. :)

I had fun answering those questions, I just opened myself up and let myself write whatever first came to mind; my true thoughts, emotions and feelings. I'm so happy it came across as a fun read. I'm flattered!

Those pictures are amazing! It looks so warm there... Here it's more cold.
I've never been to the dead see, but I'd love to go there someday, exactly to do what you did, which is float in it!
The natural springs and waterfalls are really beautiful too! I think I've never seen a natural waterfall before!
And that animal looks so funny! What's it called?
