Sheikh Zayed Mosque Abu Dhabi

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)

Kullens light station

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 !!
