Been to two on the first list stepped over the border into one on the second list. I walked over a chalk line border marked in the desert between Saudi and Yemen.

The best KFC I ever had was in Abha in the Asir mountains, don't knock it. Also, the Harry Ramsdens in Jeddah is top notch.

Ate lunch a few times at the El Beida Palace Hotel along with Russian air force personnel, mostly top brass as they had their mrs's with them. Anyway, the waiter would come up and offer tomato soup, chicken soup or Libyan soup,. They only ever had the latter and the ruskies just stared at us and never said a word even to each other.. Anyway, it was nice.

Saudi is decent Gavin, Ive been there for the last two years and a good environment.

The problem is the UK media . All you here is human rights and slave labour which is utter bollocks

Google Neom
You will see the tourist attraction they are building , which is the size of Belgium . They are going to rival Dubai with this project

The only unsafe thing in Saudi is the driving. When I was first there in the 80s, in Riyadh they had a road safety campaign which consisted of displaying smashed up cars at roundabouts and junctions. This however caused more accidents as people were looking at them instead of the road. They were quickly removed.

Eating out is fantastic though if you can get there.

The driving is still horrendous. When I travel to work, I go during prayer times to avoid the congestion.

Ireland is more peaceful than England at the moment as we just drink and get on with our lives but there is a growing illegal immigration problem which is slowly causing concern with the locals

After coming back from Riyadh I found driving through London a piece of piss, waiting for the gap and putting your foot down is the way forward.

I once accidentally beeped my horn behind someone at a red light. He instantly shot off off at remarkable velocity but didn't crash miraculously.

He was a Christian and at the age of 16 he was manning a gun on the back of a pickup when he was hit with machine gun fire which nearly took his left arm off. Fortunately his family had a few quid and were able to send him to Yank Land for numerous operations.

I always wanted to to go to Lebanon but never made it. The kebabs and tabbouleh  are second to none allegedly. My mate and I used to go to a restaurant run by Lebanese in Abha  (Saudi) and Elias said it was totally excellent but you could get better in Beirut.
