If you don’t have a personal car while in Saudi Arabia then your only means of getting around the city will be taxicabs.

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!
