I took a very good decision. I made a flight reservation southeast (for a change) and ended up on this special place south of the equator. The Seychelles.  The picture is from Beau Vallon beach at the island of Mahé.

Towards Victoria!

Sheikh it baby!

The rulers of old dynasties in northern Africa and the Arab world are a bit anxious these days. Perhaps former President Barak of Egypt, Colonel Gadaffi in Libya and Ben Ali in Tunisia wished they had maneuvered differently and had prepared an escape strategy!

I managed to get a glimpse of this seven-story palace of Sheikh Khalifa (president of the United Arab Emirates and emir of Abu Dhabi). The mansion, recently constructed in the island of Mahe in the Seychelles has a 360-degree view of the surrounding Indian Ocean.

Indian Ocean encounters.

The difference between a nice journey and an extraordinary adventure is the persons you meet!

Thank you Pierre, Adrian, Fadette, Michell, Danielle, Benjamin, Jelena, Ilyas, Anne, Martin, Christina, Peter, Billy, Tess, Jemmy and several other persons for spicing up my visit to the Seychelles
