Date Palms & Camels
The site is named to honor the flora, Date Palm and fauna, Camel of Saudi Arabia. They are remarkable in that they can exist in the most arid and extreme heat environment and thrive! They both are staples of a desert kingdom. Their adaptation in this ecosystem is to our benefit for nourishment and sustainability.
Living Life in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
Hello! Salam Alykum!
Thanks for visiting this blog!
We are a family of 4 from America, who had been living in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) for 3 years, from 2018 until 2021. You can find out what it is like to live an expat life in this country with your family, or by yourself. The most recent posts are the first ones you will find. If you scroll back through the many posts here, you can find out information on compound life, dressing, cultural customs, and so on. It was exciting to spend some time here, and there are still places we’d like to come back to visit. May you find it useful in your exploration!
We entered Saudi a year after ladies were allowed to drive. We left when Saudi started adopting new “green initiatives” both in energy production, the environment, agriculture and water. Currently there is a boom in building projects both for entertainment, such as sports arenas, horse racing tracks, desert camping, and tourism in historic districts. In a few years this country will be posed to be a new hot spot destination for tourism, so why not visit while it is still in the making!
