The Dead Sea

On this day a year ago I was enjoying my final day in Jordan by visiting the famous Dead Sea. (Yes, it’s taken me a year to write about a 9 day trip, don’t judge me!). Anyway what a difference a year can make huh?

Anyway there isn’t much I can add that hasn’t already been mentioned on countless travel blogs about the Dead Sea. It is an amazing experience, one I would recommend you give a go if in the area. The sensation of feeling weightless and floating is surreal, and a nice warm lather in the mineral rich mud is a fun novelty while providing some temporary benefits to the skin (a few hours later after all the dust and sweat of summer in Jordan will have your skin going back to its normal shit self lol).

Finishing up with a few hours relaxing by the Dead Sea and the nearby swimming pools was a nice way to end an action packed week in such a beautiful country! The Dead Sea was just another example of Jordan really “having it all” for such a small country. I will be back…

    This is one of the parts of Jordan my friend and I decided to skip. Is it true what people said that the mud has this unpleasant smell? Nevertheless, if I had more time I think I would have paid a visit to the Dead Sea.

    I skipped the Dead sea for Masada and, to be fair, was glad about it. I keep on reading how the sea levels are falling and how a plan – sponsored by Italy too – to build a pipe and dessalination plant from the Red Sea is a nonstarter due to the local, well, political clusterf*ck… it felt depressing. 😦 loved the blog though!!

      Yeh apparently the Dead Sea is literally dying before our eyes. Thought I’d jump in while it was still around! I am sure Masada was a great substitute! Thanks! X

    We visited the Dead Sea in 2009. One of our group accidentally left his mobile phone in his pocket when he went in the water. It died.

  4. Wow! Definitely a bucketlist destination for me! Did you stay in one of the resorts there or do a day trip?

    • Anna says:

      Hey Mauricio! We stop in for a few hours on our way back to the capital. There is a public beach where you pay like $12 and use the change rooms, swimming pools and they have restaurants and snack kiosks there. It was a pretty good set up for the budget traveller!

    I loved my dip in the Dead Sea! I can’t believe it was a year ago that you were there … in some ways, it seems impossible that we were all still traveling normally just a year ago, and in other ways, I feel like you were just there (maybe because you posted about it so much later, you slacker! 🙂 ) But seriously, I thought our relaxing day in the sea was a great way to end a hot and dusty trip to Israel and Jordan, too.

    • Anna says:

      Hahaha yes yes a total slacker I will admit! I a, the worst blogger! But in my defence I just love reading more than writing, and I always get sucked in to reading posts for hours! Haha. Yes, a year…. What a crazy year it’s been since then! Hope you are keeping safe over there? I’ve heard it’s bad where you are?

      • thebeerwanderer says:

        Yes, you are a slacker missy. I hope to get over there one of these years. Trips put off seem less sure now than ever. I guess if all else fails, I’ll have to be content with floating n beer. 😉

      • Anna says:

        Who you calling slacker? While you’re sitting around drinking beers for “research” I’m being a slave to the fsmily! 😂😂😂

  6. Wow , this is amazing.

    Something else we missed out on during our too brief visit to Jordan! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading about your trip, both for the memories it brought back and the coverage of places we didn’t get to 🙂

    • Anna says:

      Thanks for visiting my Jordan pages Sarah! Can’t believe it was only just over a year ago I was there…. Talk about feeling like a lifetime ago!

    What a beautiful looking place 😊. I love your blog, leaving with a follow 🙂

    The Dead Sea is such a treasure, but it won’t be around much longer, relatively speaking in Earth’s timeline. I visited from the Isreal side. Never have made it to Jordan. I hope you are able to resume your travels one day.

    • Anna says:

      Thanks! Yes travels on hold for now but it’s ok…. grateful to be safe and healthy and my travel fund is looking the healthiest it’s ever been! Once all this is over I’ll have enough money for a ripper holiday!
