Israel the Promise Land

Here are a few pics from my second trip to the Holy Land.  We started in Tel Aviv, then drove down to Mitzpe Ramon to be in the dessert and jump in the crater.  Driving 160km in the dessert coming from the states is a beautiful thing.  From there I drove down to Eilat to snorkel and swim with the dolphins and salt pools of the dolphin reef.   Then I drove up to float in the Dead Sea.  While floating in the Dead Sea, everything became still and I started to wonder how in the f*ck did I get here?  How did some one that grew up in one of the worst cities in Georgia make it to Isreal, or Japan/ London……..Following my instincts is how.  It’s scary but it has taking me around the world and I have met some amazing people.

Beautiful Morning in Tel Aviv before our drive to the desert.

Arriving in Mitzpe Ramon we went to the crater first.

The view from our room at the Beresheet Hotel and Resort overlooking the crater!  That water was cold as f#ck!

Me and my Motek!!

Also there are wild ibex roaming around in Mitzpe Ramon like stray cats.

Look at the knee boots on the ibex!

For my birthday we did a 6 hour ATV tour in the desert so I got a chance to see the WHOLE crater!  It looks like MARS in the crater!

On top of the crater, we were so high you can see a bird go by.

Driving through the Mitzpe Ramon Crater

I got sooooo dust from the drive, look at the dust in my beard.

Koh Somui Villa at the Orchid Hotel in Eilat.  Got a chance to go to the Dolphin Reef and swim with the dolphins and float in the salt pools.  I went snorkeling at 9am at Snuba beach and was able to spend some time with this amazing octopus.  I witnessed it change colors and it was one of the most amazing trippiest sh#t I ever seen!

We made it to the Dead Sea right before sunset.  You can actually see the moon in the sky and for some reason the sky and the water was the same color so when I got inside of the water.  It looked like was was sitting in infinity.  Unbelievable…..so warm, so cold, so amazing.  Another TRIPPY experience.  I got out of the sea and didn’t need to dry off because the water beaded of my body like a fresh polished car.  My skin was oily and glowing.  I was itching on the ride back to Tel Aviv but it was worth it.

I performed a 40min set at the Dancing camel in Tel Aviv my last night in town it was Amazing.
