12 Things You'll Miss The Most When Or If You Leave Saudi
So say you have returned back to your home country or went on living somewhere else, voluntarily or involuntarily some part of Saudi still remains with you. And, no matter how hard you try there are so many things that you get used to that are hard to leave behind.
Here are a few of those things, in actuality, as said by people who have left the Kingdom:
1. Saying things like 'shu', 'wallah' and 'ya3ne'
2. The nostalgia is real
I think we can all agree on this.

3. The late night shoppings
The late night shoppings because malls tend to open around 6PM or so and closes down at around 2 or 3AM? 😂— مغامر (@giorysjr) October 1, 2017
4. The cheap oil
One of the things I miss about Saudi, is filling up the car tank to full for about 40 AED. Whereas, here I have to pay around 160 AED :)— لجين أبوالفرج (@LujainAbulfaraj) December 6, 2010
