Floating In Gold

– Have you ever seen those photos of people floating in Gold ” Dead Sea”?

Deep in the Jordan Valley and 55 km (34 miles) southeast of Amman, is the Dead Sea, one of the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the whole World. It is the lowest body of water on earth, the lowest point on earth’s surface, and the World’s richest source of natural salts, hiding wonderful treasures that accumulated throughout thousands of years. Not only the lowest spot on earth, but also the saltiest and most mineral-laden body of water in the world, the Dead Sea, which joins Palestine and Jordan, is legendary as a source of healing, and has become a popular center for health, rehabilitation and beauty treatments.

– WHILE floating in the Dead Sea :

* Forget your swimming instincts, it’s time to float on your back! Don’t try to swim, don’t try to walk out in the water till you’re up to your neck. Just get in the water, walk till you can squat and gently ‘lie’ on it.

*Also, don’t kick the water to move, just use your hands – you’ll be fine even if you don’t know how to swim J

*For the strong swimmers among you – you can swim breaststroke, but only with goggles. You probably won’t enjoy it too much, as the water will eventually get in your nose and on your lips.

* Don’t splash! It’s extremely painful and stings to have the water get in your eyes!

* Don’t taste the water – the water is way too salty, it tastes horrible and becomes poisonous if
too much is ingested.

* If any water gets on your face, don’t try to wipe it off with your wet hand, you’d only make it worse. Just get out and shower.
