Last week, Overland Journal launched Episodes One and Two of a three-part original fly-and-drive video series titled Destinations: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This series follows the adventures of Richard Giordano and myself (Desk to Glory) as we travel through Saudi Arabia in a rented Toyota Fortuner. The complete series is now live on Expedition Portal’s YouTube channel.
The final episode is packed with adventure. We explore a deserted Hejaz Railway station, wander through the red coral buildings of Jeddah’s old town, track down an abandoned Catalina seaplane, and narrowly avoid involvement in a Planet of the Apes reenactment. A final night camped on the edge of the Al Wahbah Crater makes for the perfect spot to recount our three-week experience driving 5,500 kilometers through Saudi Arabia.
