InterNations Event Experience


This past weekend I made my way down to Riyadh to visit friends and do fun things (shopping, dining etc)! I also attended my very first InterNations event with a friend. The event was held at Bonita Village Compound (visit)  which is located on the outskirts of the city. It was quite the distance from the city centre and the taxi ride out there was lengthy. The compound is a new development and is pretty much deserted. With something like only 3 families and 15 bachelors currently residing in the entire compound.

Bonita Village Compound is very pretty, nicely designed and has well kept grounds. It is fully equipped with a bowling alley, restaurant/cafe, mini market , CINEMA and pool. If you like to leisurely relax, then this is the place to be. The event cost 150sar/ticket; including access to all the features mentioned above. I also includes a dinner and evening dance party of sorts. It was held from 2pm to around 10pm or later.

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!
