Al-Ayyam Al-Jamilah is a twice-yearly magazine distributed to retired employees and adult children of the Saudi Aramco Enterprise. Much of the content is compiled from letters, articles, news clippings and photos submitted by its readers. The magazine often includes historic photos that shed light on life in the Saudi Aramco community during the early years. It also includes articles prepared by retirees touching on their past and the company's history. One issue annually features the Saudi Aramco Annuitants Reunion, held every year since 1958. Other retiree reunions and gatherings of offspring are also covered.

“Seize the day!” signals retiree Adrianus Verhoeven, now 77. As a Tapline employee, he cycled 3,730 miles home to Holland in 1960; in 2012, he topped that with a 3,872-mile ride across the United States. Cycling in America felt safer, but his earlier adventure still holds him in its grip. “I’d love to do it again,” he says.
