I had the pleasure of visiting Jordan specifically the Dead Sea region.

 

It was an amazing experience. It turned out to be quite relaxing. I truly cannot place into words the experience. I will visit again. My daughter says she wants to go. I want to visit Petra and Aqaba next time. I want to see more of the historical sites.

I was able to visit the baptism site where Jesus was baptized.

Was able to see the Jordan River. I opted not to be baptized in the Jordan river.

The Jordan River. One side is Palestine and the other side is Jordan.

The Palestinians had a more formal type of baptism ceremony in place with a priest and minister present prior to them going into the river to be baptized.

We stayed in a hotel that was right next to the Dead Sea.

Yes I got into the water. Yes you can float. Yes I placed the mud on. Honestly I didn’t like the feel of the water. It was thick feeling. I could almost feel the salt.
