Eight Lessons to be learnt from my first Eight Days in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
I was first contacted, at the beginning of May, by Cypriot company, Ramo Pro Cycling, regarding a coaching and ride leading position abroad. I assumed it would be Cyprus but, to my surprise, it was in Saudi Arabia. I was intrigued as this appeared to be a great opportunity to gain invaluable practical coaching, as well as life, experience in a faraway and rarely travelled Arabian Kingdom. I patiently awaited details of the trip and, by July, my contract was confirmed in Al Bahah, in South-western Saudi Arabia.
