Blogs I enjoy about Saudi Arabia

My life isn't exciting enough for a new post. However, you may enjoy these blogs about Saudi Arabia.

A Canadian in Riyadh
This blog has really funny and useful posts about life as an expat. She doesn't go much into Saudi culture. I read a lot of her blog while looking for places to live in Riyadh and getting a feel for what life would be like. She no longer posts as I think she has moved back to Canada.

Blue Abaya
This blog is written by a Finnish woman, married to a Saudi man. She works as a nurse at a hospital. I find this blog interesting because she has a lot of interactions with Saudis. She has an insider/outsider perspective that I find fascinating. Her posts are funny as well.

  1. Thanks for the links! I was telling a friend on Saturday just how wonderful I think you are to see all your experiences as an adventure. Thank you for sharing via your blog. I read a couple of posts on these other blogs and find myself even more intrigued.
