Marina Walk by blackchallenge

Just what is the Dubai Marina? Well, it is a lot of things: water, canals, apartments, hotels, people and shops. Dubai is famous for having the tallest building in the world and the biggest flag. Apparently, Dubai Marina is the biggest marina in the world and is expected to house 120,000 people when it is finished. Yes, there are marinas at Dubai Marina. And they cater for regulars as well as visitors where possible. The Arabian Gulf is often smooth, but it can be surprisingly rough when certain winds blow. Little of this touches you in the Marina. There are four marinas offering different experiences from the exclusive to the more chummy approach and providing for yachts from 8-50 meters. The marinas are under the control of a management team that works hard to cater to the needs of its members.

Evidence of the existence of the Parodi Ligure region goes back as early as 937 when it was identified as “Palode.” It later was assigned to the Castiglione monastery. The town was fortified around 1128 (Castrum Palodii). It was sold to the Republic of Genoa, after the Genoese liberated the Marquis of Parodi, Alberto ‘Zueta’, who had been held hostage by the Lord of Castelletto. From this time, it was under the control of Genoa, although Alberto’s son, William, nicknamed ‘the Saracen’, unsuccessfully attempted to regain it, with support from his maternal uncle, William V of Montferrat. In 1945 some damage was sustained to the region, with some houses being burnt, as a result of the Nazi/Fascist confrontations. (This region of Italy is famous for being anti-fascist.) Wikipedia

Hallstatt Nebel by MartinMeding-Photography

Hallstatt ist wohl eins der bekanntesten Fleckchen auf der Erde. So bekannt, dass die Asiaten es schon nachgebaut haben …. aber an das Wahre kommen sie nicht ran. Einfach ein atemberaubender Blick … Dachstein, See … und egal welches Wetter … immer was los und viel zu sehen.

In order to create the man-made marina in Dubai Marina, the developers brought the waters of the Arabian Gulf into the site of Dubai marina, creating a new waterfront. There is a large central waterway, excavated from the desert and running the length of the 3 km site. More than 12% of the total land area on the site has been given over to this central public space.Although much of this area is occupied by the marina water surface, it also includes almost 8 km of landscaped public walkways.
