ISRAEL #6: THE DEAD SEA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen in Israel, one obviously has to go to the Dead Sea. Floating in its crystal-clear water was simply an unforgettable experience, which I had dreamed of for a very long time. Besides that we also went to see the ancient settlement of Masada that is located on a small mountain next to the Dead Sea.

There are tons of companies offering (rather expensive) organized tours to these spots, but you can easily reach them by public transport (Egged buses offers numerous departures every day - a round trip to Masada & En Bokek is roughly 25€).
