Dubai Post!!

As you can see, I saved the best for last, and that is our Dubai adventure. I've heard that Dubai is overrated, but I can tell you that's a lie. I definitely liked it more than I expected. The only thing I didn't like is that we spent the whole day running around, instead of just enjoying the city. Despite all the running for almost 12 hours, we only managed to see three "main attractions": the beach, Burj al Arab (7 star third tallest hotel in the world), and Burj Khalifa (tallest building in the world). The beautiful medieval looking hotel you see in the pics is Al Qasr on Jumeirah Beach, near Burj al Arab. And, no, I don't think I have anything against artificially made medieval buildings, I think every country should have them :D I liked it so much I could have spent the whole day there, if only I had known sooner about it. Dubai is very crowded and it takes an hour to get to almost anywhere by bus, so plan your time wisely! These magical 12 hours have only left me wanting more and I sincerely hope one day to get the chance to spend enough time there, and, I think you need at least a week to really get to know any city! :)

Mayday Weekend Cottage and Golubac Fortress

I was finally able to connect my phone to my laptop and show you some pics I took at the beginning of May. We own a weekend cottage in a little village called Vinci at the Romanian border. There we ate some barbecue, drank some whiskey and went for a walk. While we're there, we like to visit Golubac town, where there is an important historical site, although not quite yet fit for tourists.
Golubac town was a Roman fortified town, most likely built in 14th century on Danube,. It is now pretty ruined due to vegetation, but is supposed to be completely rebuilt in the near future, in 2016, so it's going to be a huge gorgeous castle in all its glory, you will see a projection at the end of this post. I can't wait to see it myself, and show you some pics, but I guess I'll have to wait a little more!

And finally, here's a picture of what the reconstructed castle will look like, taken from this page, where you can read some more about Golubac.
