Whats up guys? Myself and my buddy Nick Digeroloma got the rare opportunity to go to Saudi Arabia for 2 weeks to do demos for Mtn Dew. Americans are not allowed in the country without an invitation from the country so we were super lucky to be there. We did a lot of traveling between the 12 hour flights there and back,the flights inside Saudi Arabia and driving to and from airports as well throughout the cities.
Saudi Arabia is a very wealthy country for the most part. Nice cars everywhere, cheap gas since they export most of the oil to all over the world, and big cities. Also their government is ruled by the Muslim religion so its wayyyyy different over there. Women have to be covered up, 5 prayer times during the day and businesses have to close for each one throughout the day, and many other things.
We got to experience the culture and a whole new way of life while there. We ate new foods, stayed at sweet hotels, went riding quads in the desert, did our events, and saw so many new amazing things! We did our events with motocross and drifting and that defiantly was crazy!
If you ever get a chance to go anywhere in the world my advice is take it. Whether its to the next city over or across the world, you wont regret it. You never know what you might get to see or experience and what doors it may open for your future.
I will leave you with a bunch of photos and look for a video of our trip soon!
