Dubai/November

I’m so busy these days, that I have not much time to update my blog. Just to make a short posts about near past and future:

The ferry from Iran to UAE was 100$ + 20$ for bicycle, but no problems with customs or border guards. I changed my passport in UAE, so from now on I am Finn!!! This because no visa fee for Finnish, and I just learned that if I fly to India, I can get arrival Visa for 60$. This goes only for five countries, and amazingly Finland is one of them. Lucky me.

As for Dubai, it’s a Disneyland for adults, and I think it is stupendous. At least if your budget is unlimited. You can go f.e skiing and skating in the World’s biggest shopping malls, or just take a balloon ride over the every-day expanding sky scrapers. New York has a real competitor here, and this one has a warm climate all year long.

My trip continues tomorrow towards Oman, and I have a booked flight from Muscat to Mumbai in one week. This means Etappe 4 will be just a 500km stretch over deserted area. From India my trip continues towards Nepal.

EXCITING!

    hi lukas,
    i am sure, you will love oman not at least because of the tremendous contrast to dubai, a breathtaking place you described absolutely correctly. it’s already more than ten years ago that i visited oman but then i found it as one of the most beautiful and exotic places i’d aver been to: muscat, a modern city with oriental flair as from arabian or thosands and one nights (port, shuk/bazar, mosques ets.), very clean and safe. a countryside with wadis, oasis, steppe and sand-deserts of mighty dunes, total quietness and peacefulness, romantic little villages with friendly citizens and wonderful beaches with palm trees.
    hope you will have likewise experiences!
    all the best!
