Our winners today 🍍


🥇 ENAM: Abu Dhabi's Hidden Gem by @storiesoferne

This exclusive property is owned by Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, a lavish billionaire and is also said to be eccentric in his ways. He even commissioned a super-massive text project to be engraved in the dunes of neighboring Futaisi Island (another property he owns) - an extremely large group of letters spelling his name that was visible from space.

🥈 Grønsvik coastal fortress: Hiking back in time by @koenau

Some of the military installations are disintegrate, the most of the doors and bunker lids are rusty. You can hike along on easy ways, making pictures and marvel at the madness of mankind. But at Grønsvik Kystfort, one of the best preserved fortresses between Stokkvågen i Lurøy, you will find a museum the see original stuff from this short era of occupation.

🥉 Through the Gulkam gorges, Uzbekistan by @damm-steemit

We climbedthe Pesochniy pass (Sand pass) and began our descent into the Gulkam-say gorge.Gulkam-say is a mountain river, into which the surrounding streams flow, fed bythe snows of the Chimgan mountains. In spring it can be dangerous here, asmudflows descend. About ten years ago, a group died here - they were squeezedin gorges and boldly by the stream of water and mudflow.
