Paragliding in Saudi (Yes, it’s true!)

As you might know, on our recent trip to Abha, my husband tried his hand at paragliding. While we initially tried to procure information about it, not much was available online. We just got lucky. So I have asked T to pen down his experience of paragliding and share with us how it felt.  Here... Continue Reading →


Abha – Day II (Art Street, Habala Hanging Village, Green Mountain)

The next day was a Friday. So that basically meant that the whole country would be in sleeping mode till after the noon prayers i.e. 1:00 PM. We decided to sleep in and freshen up completely for the next day. But I don’t know if it was the excitement of the new place or the... Continue Reading →

Dhi Ayn Ruins 78 Kms from the Al Muzaylif exit are the Dhi Ayn or Dhi Ain ruins. I did read a bit about it earlier and found out it was a UNESCO Heritage site. The entrance is managed by a sleepy fellow (probably because he didn’t expect us crazies to come there on a... Continue Reading →

Al Baha – The Fog City
