Great job Dude! All posts are awesome. Sharing your knowledge in writing is indeed a blessing to everyone. Keep it up.

This blog deserves to be at the top because the contents were enticingly and passionately written. The blogger is grandiloquent in telling his stories. His writing style is very unique and his choice of words is intelligently authored. You will love not only his stories but the aesthetic photos as well. Kudos!

The writer covers general patronage like travelling, grammar, food, and other topics. His blog is a bridge of knowledge to those interested in travelling or working to Saudi Arabia. And in fact, it makes me want to go there right away. Haha.. Sony is one of the superb persons I know not only by his blogs but even more by his doings to his family & friends. So keep, sharing all the wanders you encountered in our home planet and inspire more souls beyond our country. Nice blog..

A must read for expat Asians who are in the city. He's got nice stories about Arabs and how sees Saudi Arabia. I like it when he incorporated this quote into one of his blog posts: ‎”Many people are afraid of the world beyond their door, yet the vast majority of humans are not thieves, murderers or rapists. They are people just like you and me who are trying to get by, to help their families and go about living their lives. There is no race, religion or nationality that is exempt from this rule. How they go about living their lives might be different, but their general goals are the same” (20 Things I Learned From Traveling Around The World For Three Years by Gary Arndt). He's been proving his point that we, regardless of nationality, may be living our lives differently but our general goals are the same at the end of the day.

I followed this blog in 2012. I saw his tremendous progress when it comes to his narratives. Now that he is in Saudi Arabia, he just keep getting better. I can't get enough of his stunning pictures.

I love these blogs. It's all about arts and humanity, an inspiration of a person's well being. It teaches us how to appreciate every single details that comes in our life. Ohh well, that pot is so significant in Arab world! Just knew it's their symbol of hospitality. Great job Sir Sonyboy!

Like the blogger, I'm also from the Philippines who happens to be in Saudi for a greener pasture. I had reservations about coming here at first because of the bad experiences being told by our kababayans. Reading "Stories of the Wandering Feet and Mind" validated my decision to give Saudi a try. What's interesting in his blog posts is the simplicity of his travel stories. He's not a globetrotter as we know but he has a way of turning ordinary places to something special. Keep passion burning, Sony. Cheers!

Thumbs up for this blog. I am also a subscriber since I discovered it. Like the rest of the commenters, I find the blogger's stories relevant and engaging. His choice of words is somewhat different in some cases. These are the times when his pictures are noticed. This blog is recommended to those who are planning to go to and who are already in Saudi.

I bookmarked this blog since I read a post about the goodness of Saudis in general. I recommend this blog for those with misconceptions about Saudis and our country.

I haven't read them all yet but I am pretty sure these blog posts are created to encourage, inspire and guide people not only with the nature and places he has been to but also with the language. Thank you for taking the initiative to share the joy you had, visiting wonderful places and advocating the correct usage of the language. FIGHTING~

I stumbled upon this blog when I was doing a research on life in Saudi Arabia. When I got to his site, I immediately noticed his unique writing style that is likely to be misconstrued. The passion is what you will admire about the author. He never ceases to amaze me with what his mind thinks about the things he photographs around him. This blog is still under my bookmarked.

This blog has interesting stories in it. It feels good to read them from someone who doesn't have formal lessons in writing. For him to deliver stories that good is something worthy of my time. The blog certainly has what it takes to be topper on the list.

Simple blog with a lot of life lessons. Fantastic!

This blog deserves to be at the top. It is one of those blogs that I want to have. It's honest. Sony, the author, is not afraid to tell you what's on his mind, which makes his posts very engaging. And as an intermittent blogger like me, I envy Sony's passion for telling stories and taking pictures. He's so focused and consistent! At the end of the day, when I already exit Saudi Arabia and retire in the Philippines, I will still read his blog posts - because Sony just doesn't talk about what happens, he talks about what matters.
