Well guys we have died and gone to heaven. We have arrived at the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar on the Dead Sea. It is absolutely gorgeous here. The room is fabulous. The bathroom is amazing and full of soaps etc of Dead Sea salts. The grounds are superb with lots of pools as well as the Dead Sea. We headed straight there once we got here.
It's been a holiday of many firsts and unreal sites but to be floating in the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth at 400 metrs below sea level, and looking over at Israel on the opposite shore has to be right up there with feelings of unreality.
Tomorrow we head for Syria. We're not sure how much if anything we'll be able to add there so you may have to wait for the DVD!
