The Evolution of Signature Astigin Porma of Saudi OFWs

I’ve never really been drawn to glue my optical organs to my cellphone whenever I’m at the gatehouse before boarding. I do some other things such as looking at the ceiling or to anything that’s visually appealing and connect what I’m feeling to it; engage a seatmate into a conversation (if it’s a friend of…

Chronicles Of A Three-Day Trip to Dubai: The Airport!

On the 15th of July in 2016, I, Onel, and Ren left the quiet morning of Al Izdihar  for a trip to one of the most modernized cities in the world known for its avant-garde architecture, colorful nightlife scene, and ultimate shopping experience: Dubai. Since this is my as well as Onel’s first international travel,…

2014: A Year of Life Lessons

2013 was a milestone year for Stories of the Wandering Feet & Mind. The blog gained several blurbs from other blogs and the blogger had an article published in national print. The experience was very humbling. Now that 2015 has already unfolded, it is but fitting for me to join the bandwagon once again even though…

“A Series Of Unfortunate Events”

Most travel bloggers do not talk much about the pits of traveling. The thought that such stories could discourage the readers to try the life-changing experience that is traveling is impertinent. They, therefore, opt to hide the worst parts of it and bring the stories out by using the costumes of entertainment instead. Until they…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring

The scene that comes to mind whenever I hear the word “spring” is the primary wonders of nature coming back to life heralding transformation and hope. The freezing temperature that made our bodies dormant for the past few months is now arid and clime. The leaves we saw falling are now turning virescent. The flowers we saw wilting are…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold

“A threshold is a point of entering; that point just before a new beginning—that split-second moment in time, full of anticipation…” (Krista Stevens). One of my most memorable–life enriching at that–travel experiences is visiting the historical village of Ushaiger in the far country side of Riyadh City (“The Doors and Mud-Built Houses of Ushaiger Heritage Village“). Passing…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

Nothing symbolizes the word “beginning” better than a sunrise. This nature feat reminds me of this quote from Bernard Williams: “There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope.” A quote that always awakens that sense of optimism in me in times of despair.

The Exhibit Archive Of Ushaiger

The locals’ massive trachles to preserve their objects of historical and archaeological value are quantified into Al Salem Museum, which is standing on the middle of the village. Getting inside the exhibit archive requires a few silver coins from the old world. And I must say ten riyals is an underprice with the handsome antiques…
