Living in Saudi Arabia gets a lot of eyebrows raised, especially when you tell someone who has never seen it that you live and work here. However, us as expats are living proof that the Kingdom actually isn’t bad AT ALL. 

In fact, we always leave it knowing we’d one day want to return. 

And to that note, here are 11 memes that PERFECTLY sum up what it was/is like living in Saudi: 

1. We always struggle with the unbearable heat in summertime… 

Always.

Less effort on dressing, and trying to pair outfits together. 

(Not to mention the stunning range of designs, we’re spoilt with choice!) 

4. It is a food HAVEN
