Picture of the Day: Siwa’s Surreal Salt Lakes and Their Healing Beauty

Our favorite picture of the day is from the beautiful Siwa Oasis in Egypt. This picture of a man seemingly having the time of his life, relaxing in the water, reminded us of this hidden Egyptian gem. Siwa is known for its unique salt lakes, which are both healing and an important source of revenue for the residents of the oasis. Apart from its relaxing atmosphere and stunningly surreal beauty, the water has healing properties for the skin, sinuses, and eyes, because of its extreme saltiness.

Since summer is approaching and we’re still keeping safe and staying at home, we thought it would be nice to share this breathtaking beauty with our readers, to remind them where they should head as soon as the pandemic is over.
