The Dead Sea is also known as the Salt Sea; it is located 1,300 feet below sea level and is blessed with a huge amount of naturally forming minerals as a result of the incredibly quick evaporation rate of the sea. Due to the high concentration of minerals in the water, visitors can float effortlessly on it’s surface. It has been proven that the waters of the Dead Sea as well as the surroundings and mud from the sea are therapeutic for many people with skin disorders, joint problems and respiratory illnesses.
How to get there: From Jerusalem, the Dead Sea is an hour drive along highway 1. Alternatively, one can drive from Tel aviv to Arad and then from Arad to the heart of the Dead Sea region, Ein Bokek.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
