Things Women Should Bring to Saudi

This post is a little guide to things you should think about bring to Saudi Arabia. The items listed are either not available, forbidden, limited and/or overly priced. I know when first moving to Saudi I was completely baffled about what to bring and ended up bring all the wrong things. This doesn’t only apply to Saudi Arabia, if you are considering relocating anywhere in the Middle East, this can be of help.
Of course there may be some things that don’t apply to you or are not listed and I would love to hear what they are. I always end up making a “Thing to get @home” list the minute I return to Saudi that ends up going on for the entire year. So keep in mind, that you can and will go home eventually!

It has come to my attention that my blog has happily turned into an informative spot for many people looking to embark the journey to Saudi Arabia. May it be for personal or professional reasons so many lovely readers have contacted me with dozens of emails asking all things and everything about expat life in the Kingdom. For some I have been able to
respond but for the others I promise a response with time.

I thought that I would continue the expat informative posts because the last one was the driving force behind the many emails. I know my perspective is a bit biased and narrow as I am a moderately young (sarcasm) female expat working and living in Saudi. But nonetheless I hope it helps in any way it can.
This second post should appropriately be titled Keeping Cool and by no means referring to the temperature but rather one’s sanity. Here are what and how’s of how I have been able to keep sane in a world so different from where I am from. Enjoy!

Single Saudi Expat Female. Q & A

I’ve decided to compile a rather lengthy helpful tips list for single-expat women in the KSA. After a few years here I feel that I have gathered quite a reasonable perspective on life here as a single women. In essence I think these tips will benefit all expat women living in the KSA. The reason I geared this to single women is because after meeting so many female expats over the years, it was always clear that many of them had no clue about what the heck is really going on.
