I love Israel. I have loved Israel since the moment I visited, on a Birthright program in spring 2001.
I remember my time there very clearly. Clashes had just started breaking out between Israelis and Palestinians, and I was really scared to go visit the country.
But, I did.
For 10 days, my group of about 25 people visited many places in the country, including the Dead Sea. In a bullet-proof bus (due the recent violence), and with two body guards at our sides, we drove from Jerusalem to the Sea.
I remember taking it in — the magnificent swirls of the water in bright blues and greens. I remember dipping my toes in. And, I remember floating in mere inches of the warm water.
Now, the Dead Sea is up for one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
I didn’t take this photo, but I wanted to share the beauty of the Dead Sea with you. If you’ve ever been there, please share you experiences below!
AND, please take a moment and vote for The Dead Sea to be included as one of the new seven wonders of the world.
