Saudi Arabian coffee

As for the drinks, alcoholic beverages are not allowed in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. But maybe you would like to pack and carry with you their tasteful coffee. Of course, while it is still in the non-liquid state. Because you will hardly find such tasteful coffee outside of the Middle East.

Packing exotic spices and drinks before the move

Packing exotic spices and drinks is not so hard to do. If your spices are already packed in their original packaging then all you have to do is to sort them all out. Prepare groups of similar spices and place them in zip lock bags. They are perfect for keeping things fresh. And that is exactly what you are looking for. After you place them in bags, find an appropriate plastic container and put them inside. Wrap the container with stretch wrap plastic and your spices are ready to go.
