Being in Saudi has opened my eyes to the reality that people here really like to travel. They may not be jet setters traveling around the world but they definitely like to escape their harsh climates at least yearly.  As many already know ARABS like to do things like other ARABS even when travelling. Meaning they tend to go to places that are highly frequented by other ARABS.

Travel
For our summer holiday we opted to revisit a city that we absolutely fell in love with the first time (Istanbul, Turkey). Having been there for a short time before we thought that the city had so much more to offer so we opted for a two-week stay this time around.
