Saudi Arabia: The Perils of Travel

“Traveling on your own in Saudi is anxiety inducing but not because it's dangerous in any way. There are lots of boundaries and we still have no idea where they begin or end. Because we are never certain about what we can and cannot do, every mundane activity results in a stupid amount of stress. We think there are two reasons for this: first, there are plenty of rules and but none of them are codified. Second, there are no good models to follow,” writes Carpet Blog, who is visiting Saudi Arabia.
