The Story

230717 : From Sumpfallen Parking, we have driven to Ullared Shopping Mall to buy home provisions. Ullared is a huge shopping mall which sells a majority of items at wholesale prices. The founder did all the public relation by himself to liaise with all suppliers to get cheap prices for bulk items and unfortunately passed away from multiple tumor in his left brain. The same place where he always uses his handphone. It is suspected this is because he probably did all the supplier communication by himself. 

The parking lot itself is huge too. There are other shops here too, but everyone is mostly here to go to Ullared. I see a lot of camper vans too. We were here till 5pm.

The Story

220717 : From the beach and the caves in Kullaberg Nature Reserve, we were on a mission to find a restaurant in the Nature Reserve. It was about an hour walk before we found the restaurant. It was a short walk in the forest and then, we found ourselves next to the road and across the road is a golf club. We kept walking and saw a car park. Soon enough, we see the entrance to the Lighthouse. 



This is how far we have walked from the beach to the Parking Lot.

The Story

220717 : We woke up to the beautiful forest of Kullaberg Nature Reserve. There were lots of cars parked. There is a toilet which does not have the 'flush' function. There is ample space for one to pitch their tents. I saw people pitching their tents in the evening when we returned to the car after our walk. The walk starts at 10.20am.
