Abu Dhabi

Från MareAndKate

I’ve spent a week in Abu Dhabi visiting friends and it’s been really amazing! There’s so much to do here and the time flies! I’ve taken a walk along the Corniche Beach, it’s very long, but you have the beach on one side and the high skyscrapers on the other side and it’s nice to just look around. Visiting Qasr Al Hosn was about understanding the history and origin of Abu Dhabi. It was really cool to see the timeline from just desert to this developed one modern city! The Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque was just beautiful and really really big! It was interesting to hear about the design and prayer rituals. For New Years Eve we went to Yas Marina where we danced and watched the fire works, before going home and again celebrating the New Year in Europe! I went on a desert safari, the Al Khatim Desert, and I had soooo much fun! First you’re driven through the desert in a 4*4 car and it’s like going on a rollercoaster! Then I got to ride a camel a short distance before getting a henna tattoo and enjoying a dinner while watching a belly dancing show! The Louvre was special, especially the dome and the sunset! I also went to the Etihad towers and their Observation Deck for lunch. From here you can see the whole city, the view is just stunning! I also thought it was cool since they shot some scenes for Fast and Furious 7 here! I managed to see the Emirates Palace, which is just incredible. We went there to just look around and have some tea. Yesterday we went to Zaya Nurai Island and spent the whole day laying on the beach drinking some cocktails and eating tasty food just enjoying the sun and views. It was so relaxing and calm and a day well spent! Tomorrow I’m going back home. It’s been quite an eventful week and I’m so happy I got the opportunity to visit Magda and Michal, oh, and they also took me salsa dancing, which makes my trip complete! If you have the opportunity to visit Andy Dhabi, you definitely should!

I’ve never been to Dubai before but after spending a couple of days here, I’d definitely recommend people coming here! It’s a beautiful city and warm weather, which suits me perfectly. I met up with my friend Patricia and she really showed me a good time here! We went to see the Dubai Fountain, Burj Khalifa, Jumeirah Beach, Dubai Mall and Burj al Arab! So cool to see these places! On our night out we even ended up at a Trey Songz concert! So far, I like it here a lot!

Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello - Italy

Today I’ve visited four really beautiful cities, Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. All had their own charm but I think I liked Sorrento and Positano the most. Great views, lots of colours in the small streets and squares, lots of people and tasty food!

Idag har jag åkt runt till fyra olika städer, Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi och Ravello. Alla hade sin egen charm men det var många turister och det var riktigt varm idag. Jag gick omkring och fick se fina utsikter och små gator med olika affärer och allt var så färgglatt! Väl värt att besöka!

Naples part 2

Från MareAndKate

Today I’ve been walking around Naples. I’ve realised that Naples is a very big city if you want to walk everywhere. It’s been very hot and windy today as well so I’m pretty exhausted now. I didn’t have any particular plan when I started walking but just went where the streets took me but I found some pretty gems that I really liked! :)

——

Idag har jag gått omkring i Neapel. Det är en stor stad så jag är ganska trött av allt gående, stekande sol och vind. Jag hittade några riktigt fina platser under min promenad. Nu blir det vila resten av dagen :)

Naples, Italy

So today I went on a tour to Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius. In Pompeii I got to see the Amphitheater, the specially built roads (for horses/donkeys and pedestrians so the wouldn’t walk in shit), the water supply, a spa, a casket made after a human body, villas and brothels (as well as a clear sign in the road leading to one of them), how they preserved wine and the main Forum. It was really cool to see! For lunch I had a huge pizza, I was starving after all the walking. :) After that I went to Mt Vesuvius and climbed up to the crater. It was so cool to stand up there and i even saw a little bit of smoke or steam! The view from up there of the bay of Naples and the islands was just amazing! All in all a well spent day!

Idag besökte jag Pompei och berget Vesuvius. Båda ställena var häftiga! I Pompei fick man se hur människorna hade bott, deras specialgjorda vägar, badhus, horhus, forum och vinkrukor. På Vesuvius blåste det mkt men klättringen var ganska lätt. Kratern är stor och jag såg lite ånga komma från ena sidan! :) Utsikten över Neapel och öarna var helt fantastisk! En fantastisk dag!

Rome part 2

Från MareAndKate

Today I went back in history to Ancient Rome! I went to the Colosseum, the Arch of Constantine, the Roman Forum, Julius Caesar’s altar, the House of the Vestal Virgins, the Arch of Titus, Palatine Hill, the Imperial Palace and Via Sacra. There was so much to see and pretty cool to stand in places where powerful historic people have walked and lived their lives! An incredible experience and well worth all the walking! :)

——

Idag blev det sightseeing i och runt om Colosseum och Forum Romanum! Det fanns otroligt mkt att se, även om inte allt är bevarat. Det var en häftig upplevelse att få ha gått samma gator där historiska figurer har gått och levt sina liv! Så glad att jag fick uppleva detta! :)

So today I’ve been sightseeing all day. The Vatican museums, the Sistine Chapel, St Peter’s Church and Square, Fontana Di Trevi, the Pantheon and the Spanish Steps! Had an amazing day and walked till my feet burned, except in the morning when a bird pooped on my head! But hey, I’ve heard that means luck! :) Now some food and then I’m going to watch tonight’s game when Sweden is playing, let’s see if they can pull of a good game like Croatia did the other day!

——

Idag har jag gått omkring så mina fötter brinner. Det blev sightseeing i Vatikanen. Museerna, St Peters kyrka och torg, Sixtinska kapellet, Trevifontänen, Pantheon, Spanska trappan. En helt fantastisk rundtur! Allt gick bra förutom i morse när jag fick fågelbajs på huvudet :) men jag har hört att det betyder tur, så ingen skada skedd! Nu blir det middag och sedan ska jag titta på när Sverige spelar, hoppas de kan få till en lika bra match som Kroatien här om dagen!

Venice part 2

Från MareAndKate

Today I’ve been to the Doge’s Palace and on a boat tour through Venice. It’s really hot here and I’m tired from walking around all day. Doge’s Palace was really beautiful and so worth the 1h wait to get inside! The boat tour was nice, it was cool to see the city from another perspective! Tomorrow it’s off to Rome!

——

Idag var jag på Dogepalatset. Det var jättefint och häftigt att se alla takmålningar! Så värt att stå i kö i 1 timme för att komma in :) Sedan blev det en liten båttur längs Canal Grande. I morgon bär det av till Rom!

Venice, Italy

I’m travelling again! This time it’s Italy and I’ve started in Venice! I took a flight from Split and I’ve been exploring the city all afternoon. The city is really beautiful and you find very crowded places but also some quiet ones, if you want to find some peace and just enjoy the moment! I had to try their pizza and managed to eat the whole one! :) Tomorrow my plan is to take a boat tour and see the city from another point of view!


——


Ute och reser igen! Så kul att få packa ryggsäcken och känna friheten men också inte veta vad som väntar en! Idag flög jag från Split och har utforskat Venedig hela eftermiddagen! Måste säga att Venedig är en fantastisk stad och att den definitivt visar upp den charm som man förväntat sig. Det finns en hel del turister här, men man kan även hitta lite lugnare områden och bara njuta av stunden! Pizza till middag var ett måste! :) Planen för i morgon är en båttur!

Thank you Los Angeles for a great couple of days! I've had the opportunity to do lots of things, visit different places and meet great people! :) So, after six months, the time has come to go home to Sweden.
