Greetings,

The time is early morning here along the in Israel. I didn’t sleep much last night as I tossed and turned thinking of a time lapse I wanted to film of the sun rising over the Dead Sea from Le Meridien David’s 15th floor. When you’re excited it’s hard to slow down and sleep, that or I left my common sense somewhere in Minneapolis. It all worked out though because at 6:15AM, I found myself soaking in the Dead Sea at Sunrise and guess what, I had lots of company…

Long story short, I ended up on my patio to check on the time lapse when I saw that a pilgrimage of sorts had already begun and countless souls were soaking in the sea.Floating in the Dead Sea is a unique feeling on this planet. It’s like you’re in space because it is completely weightless and there is absolutely NO living life forms besides yourself and the others enjoying the sea. The floor of the sea has no vegetation and just random chunks of crystallized salts, it’s quite the sight.

Make sure you don’t put your head under, I did that last time and it’s horrific also try not to touch your face because even getting the water on your lips will burn like something fierce. I’ve had a droplet fall from my hair into my eye and I thought I was going to die… If you are going to shave, do it after you’re in the sea. I’m not kidding when I say this place is intense, you’ve been warned…

The salt makes your skin so smooth that it’s like you are in a big pool of lube and your body feels super greasy yet pure so it’s a strange sensation to say the least. The Dead Sea has many healing properties and don’t be surprised to see people from around the world there for the same reason as yourself. It’s a real international scene and of the group that had gathered this morning, I may have been the only English speaker. I was curious where everyone was from and what they were all on about but whatever…

If you’re the bucket list type, I suggest you take a moment to add “Soaking in the Dead Sea at Sunrise”.

I’d go on but it’s time to pack and get ready for the journey to Jerusalem.

Tips hat,

P.S: Seriously, try and make it to the Dead Sea if it’s something you could swing…

P.P.S: They say the sea will disappear, it won’t but it might where the hotels are…
