I enjoyed my time in KSA but after 2 years of compound living and relying on drivers my wife had had enough.
My compound-to-work journey takes 7 minutes total if I floor the throttle and ignore the speed bumps, and 2 minutes going the other way (door to door). So it is possible (and definitely worth it especially for lunch with family each day!) but it depends where you work and where you live (obviously! )
