Bluer & Greener Things in Saudi Arabia

God’s amazing work! This is our post-lockdown trip to Alkhobar, Ras Tanura and Bahrain Border. It was short but we certainly had a lot of fun! I love being with family and friends! Thank you Lord for the wonderful opportunity.

The place is generally clean. There were few thugs who probably decided it’s better to dump their trash here. People are people.
My folks are driving very slowly because they’re trying to appreciate the view – God is good!
Amazing! Sometimes, we forget that there’s water in the desert!
We’re tempted to cross it. But we forgot that we cannot 😀
I think he’s pretending that he doesn’t know I was taking his photo.
My son’s last beach adventure was last year in Hawaii.. he can tell the difference 😀
I didn’t swim with Brook but I did go to the beach to attend to him. The waves were strong.
This place is well maintained. This is the Aramco area in Ras Tanura
Ras Tanura Beach, pretty open.
I was inside the car when I took this photo. Amazing to feel the breeze. These are trees that thrived in here. They weren’t uprooted as an adult tree like how they do it in Riyadh. These ones are legit.
Sand Dunes. One of the many fine sand that we’ve passed by going to Al Khobar. I love long drives, since I wasn’t the one driving.

    1. It was short but totally refreshing. My husband usually do not join in our extended family trips but he did join here.. and to my shock, he hasn’t been there before! It was an awesome experience to be with someone who’s seen it the first time.

  1. Interesting sis! Are you still in Saudi and where? We used to go to Jeddah at least 1-2x a year to renew our visa for easier access to and fro Saudi and UAE but we lived in Abu Dhabi and we were happy there.

    1. I wish we’d get to live in AUH as well — I mean to have that option to go back and forth… we love it here in Riyadh but the freedom in UAE still makes a lot of difference.

      I love Jeddah! I was stunned at how green it is the first time I was there… I never realized Jeddah and Riyadh could be so different…

      Why did you need to regularly visit Saudi? Work related perhaps?

      1. We actually have a resident visa there but we prefer to live in the UAE and we’re also resident there coz of my hubby work is really there. Jeddah is only the Head Office and we only come to renew our visa for less hassle of in and out of the country and also if he has a meeting or conference to attend to. FYI, We are now back to New Zealand. You may check my new blog today and if you could go to Youtube we have channel there too so please feel free to watch and subscribe just let me know who you are and tell me from WP. TY sis!

        1. Oh that must have been fun! Going back and forth as you pleased… UAE is so much better but of course, JEDDAH isn’t so bad either. I love its humidity vs. how deadly Riyadh heat is.

          Thanks for sharing the video! NZ is awesome! When things get back to normal for everyone, we’re considering an NZ visit… I have liked and subscribed! You are awesome!
