One of the best choices I have made in my life thus far was renting a car and driving to the Dead Sea. When in Jordan.
I expected to see a lake. What I found was incredible beauty, amazing views, and that hot hot heat. The Dead Sea is the lowest point on Earth, below sea level, and therefore, it’s warm. Sharp and pointy salt masses lined the Dead Sea Coast.
Having the freedom of my own transportation, I stopped at multiple points along the cliffy coast; looking down from my lone picnic at the top of a bluff, I scouted out the best spot to climb down and have a float.
And climbed and floated, I did. And floated and floated.
