Hidden Spot: The Edge of The World, Saudi Arabia

I am usually not a fun of the adventures, but this adventure I would recommend it !

Hidden deep in Saudi Arabia, The Edge of the World is the place of unique beauty. The scenery is wild and scary but also peaceful and quiet.

Located only 2 hours away from the capital, the city of Riyadh. In order to reach The Edge of the World you need a proper 4×4 SUV car. The locals recommend you to always go with two cars because it is very common the cars to stuck in the sand.

Remember that women are not allowed to drive in Saudi so the ladies need a male driver!

The off road driving is dangerous in some parts, so make sure that you have a good driver with you.

The Edge of the World is the favorite spot for pick-nicks. However, make sure you will leave on the day light as when its dark is very difficult to find the way back.

All the Muses of Woody Allen

There is no doubt that Woody Allen is one of the most important film-makers in the modern history of cinema. His myth is added by his “obsession” with his Muses.

Yesterday, Woody Allen presented his latest film Café Society in the Cannes Film Festival and everyone was absolutely stunned as he arrived with Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart.

In his 50 years career Woody Allen chose to work with women of great personality. Some say, these actresses were a safe choice for Allen, but Woody Allen seem to choose the right girl for the right role.

From Diane Keaton in the classic film, Manhattan and Tea Leoni as Ellie from the movie Hollywood Ending, to Scarlett Johansson as Nola Rice in Match Point and Marion Cotillard as Andriana in Midnight in Paris.

Last but not least, the all time muse of Pedro Almodovar, Penelope Cruz as the passionate Maria Elena in Vicky Christina Barcelona.

New Obsession: O100 Perfume Concept Store, Riyadh

That is definitely a new Obsession! Who would thought that in the heart of the Saudi Arabian Capital, I would discover a store so special you would expect to find in London or in New York and I am very happy to share this with you!

The O100 store is the ultimate perfume concept store! 

Of course its not a surprise that is specialized on Perfumes since the Arabs are madly in love with scents and perfumes; but the most surprising is the amazing decoration of the store! I have not seen anything similar for a long time.

The shopping experience is amazing! Although the store was closed for praying, they opened it for me! The staff are very polite and really helpful. I was really impressed by the service and the attention to details.

Everything in this store is special. Once in Riyadh you have to visit it!

“The project drawing on the dialogue between art and nature is designed on a conversational level to create a large scale artificial reef to aggregate local fish species and increase marine biomass whilst, on the other hand, to raise awareness to current threats facing the worlds oceans. The main installation, The Rubicon features a group of 35 people walking towards a gate, a point of no return or a portal to another world.”

You may think its scary but the true numbers of the people who died trying to reach Europe the past two years are beyond scary. This is a tribute to the lost souls; the people who escaped from the war zones, put their lives in danger and they got lost in the sea.
