We experienced dune bashing, sand boarding, camel riding, belly dancing, henna painting, star gazing and yummy Arabian food all in a couple of hours in one late afternoon-evening. Dune bashing was a thrill – like a loooong roller coaster ride but I imagine people getting sea sick once in a while …..
(it’s not easy to get some pictures through a shaded window while on the roller coaster ride I tell you)
you have got to experience it !

if visiting Abu Dhabi you have got to squeeze in a visit to the grand mosque. it’s magical and soooo beautiful. (reminded me of Taj Mahal)

The newly opened ( 2 weeks ago ) Louvre is a must-to-do if in Abu Dhabi. I brought my niece who’s 15 and she really enjoyed it.
the Louvre has 12 galleries, it’s a journey from prehistoric to contemporary art.
Among the Top ten masterpieces to look out for are:
Leonardo da Vinci – La Belle Ferronnière 1490, Vincent Van Gogh Self -portrait 1887, Portrait of Fayoum Egypt Antinoopolis 225-250 A.D., Jacques -Louis David Napoleon crossing the Alps 1803, Claude Monet La gare Saint -Lazare 1877, Bactrian Princess central Asia end of 3rd beginning of 2nd millenium BCE, Jackson Pollock number 26A Black and White 1947,
then you’ll find Miro’, Hopper, Caravaggio, Vermeer, etc etc etc
I must confess that it was the building in itself that caught my attention. Love the architecture. It’s amazing what they can do…..
my companion today
If you plan to visit you need a couple of hours at least.

is the highest one in Sweden. Situated at 187.5 meters and it dates all the way back to 1561. Since 1751 more than 200 ships have become wrecks outside the horn with it’s treacherous rocks. Nowadays it’s a popular diving site because of the wrecks and very clear water.
all of a sudden I saw the sun right in the middle of the light station. Now that’s what I call solar energy.
stunning scenery. We where here early in the morning so we couldn’t climb up into the light station since it doesn’t open until 11.00 !!

Kullen, Kullaberg, Skåne, Sweden.
Posted on July 29, 2017
Kullen has got to be one of the most beautiful spots in all of Sweden. I’m so happy that we paid a visit one early morning a couple of days ago.
Soooo worth a trip but be aware…it’s not the easiest place to explore. Small children can’t run around as they like and the climbs down the cliffs can be really challenging.
there’s different nature trails you can choose to get around and at some spot there’s actually a shelter so you can stay overnight. The Swedish ” right to public access” is amazing. Too bad not everybody understands how great this is and respects it.
not a bad place to anchor for the night
you can paddle sea kayaks and do some cliff climbing around here….there’s some people getting ready to repel down the cliff side. see them?
amazing that anything can grow among all these rocks
look at that tree with the roots !
amazing scenery ….Parishamn
all of a sudden the mist was creeping up on us like a ghost
the scenery changed so fast
climbing up we could see it out over the water
while looking out over the water I all of a sudden saw two porpoises – tumlare. WOW !!
you can actually go on a porpoise watching tour that leaves from Parishamn.
below is a map of Kullen if you’re up for an adventure !
