I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with the Dead Sea. It’s hot, dry and the very image of it leaves one with a feeling of parched mouth and hobbling through the sharp rocks and salt crystals to get to its waters.

It is also one of the most quintessentially beautiful places, with its clear, flat water and its epic biblical connection.
