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!

Many of you will be familiar with the dreaded Freshman 15; which most of us experience in our first year away at university. For those of you that don’t know about the western phenomenon Freshman 15 is the (true to life) myth that predicts a roughly 15 pound weight gain in your first year at uni/college.
What you won’t recall is experiencing it yet again, later in life. Let me introduce what is commonly known as the Foreign 15Lbs.  Most expats will vouch that their experiences abroad have lead to increasing scale numbers  and fuller figures. Expat woman in Saudi Arabia
almost undoubtedly suffer from this phenomenon. Why?..
