Welcome to the worlds largest hand-llomed carpet, the fastest roller-coaste, the highest high tea, the tower withvthe greatest lean, the most interesting Formula 1 racetrack, the largest cluster lf cultural buildings of the 21st century – UAE capital Abu Dhabi isn’t afraid to challenge the world records. It is an exciting city where nothing stands still. 

For those of you who have visited Dubai but not Abu Dhabi in the past, go to both cities next time. It is only a 1,5 hour car ride between on the straightest highway in the world.

I can asure you that it is worth it to visit UAE. It is a fascinating country.

The Africa we once knew and that most people in the West still think exists is not there anymore. In fact the view most people have of the wonderful African continent is fundamentally wrong. 

Africa today is a young, prosperous, modern and fast growing region of the world. Listen to Professor Hans Rosling when he describes the real situation supported by emperic evidence and statistics and you will find amazing and promising news. I urge you to search for Professor Roslings speeched on YouTube. 

Africa is many things, but not what we think it is. In fact the real story is much better than any dreams we might have had for this, the continent of the future. I have personally visited almost all of the countries on Africa, many of them several times over a long time period. Change is very present in most places, not everywhere – but still. 

World Economic Forum has recently presented compiled statistics from IMF and own sources about the fastest growing African economies. Africa is the future for all of us.

Ot is always exiting talkng the highway from Dubai to Abu Dhabi or the other way around. 

Once and not very long ago, there were only sand here. Now two of the most modern and futuristisk vities in the world are situated only 1.5 hour by car beside each other in the desert. It is amazing and impressive in so many ways. 

I have been going to Abu Dhabi and Dubai the last two decades and the changes are unbelievable to comprehend. When you see the new areas taking shape you realize that nothing is impossible.
