When I first moved to Iceland and knew little to no one I found myself scouring the internet for advice from others who had been in the same situation as me. With just a quick Google search I found myself reading blog after blog written by other expats. I quickly related to these bloggers who were all dealing with the same things I was and that was when I became hooked on the blogging world.
Fast forward to a year later and I am still hooked on reading blogs written by other expats. I may be a bit nosy but I love reading about how they are adjusting to their life abroad as well as learning about new cultures through there eyes. I follow a lot of travel/expat blogs and have a long list of favorites that just keeps growing! I have shared my favorite travel blogs before (many of whom are also expats) and today I want to share 8 expat blogs that I have recently discovered and am absolutely loving!
Sometimes when an opportunity comes your way it is to good to say no and that is exactly what Alexandra and her husband did when offered the chance to move from America to the UK. Head over to Alexandra’s blog and get lost in her stunning pictures from her travels around Europe and of her new home in a country high on my travel list, Scotland.
The Tide That Left
After finding Amy’s blog I spent hours browsing through her archives, this lovely lady has had some wonderful adventures and they aren’t stopping anytime soon! If you are an expat, or planning on becoming one soon, you will want to head over to Amy’s blog! With 6 different countries under her belt Amy is full of advice when it comes to surviving expat life.
The Sunny Side of This
Isabel is a pretty lady from Mexico who followed her heart and is now living with her husband in Slovenia. I love an international love story and Isabel pictures and stories about life in Slovenia (a country I know little about) fascinate me. After reading this post I am now adding Slovenia to my travel bucket list!
Made to Travel
You know those people you hear about that quit their job, sell everything and move abroad for an adventure? Well Hannah is one of those fascinating people! Hannah decided to leave behind Sydney, Australia (aka the city that started my love for travel!) and start a new adventure in Berlin. Oh and did I mention she is also apart of an international love story, I am clearly a sucker for those!
Beer Time With Wagner
An American currently living in Germany (soon to be Croatia, lucky lady!) reading Jordan’s blog is like listening to your hilarous friend share her travel stories. And with lots of wonderful travel stories to share you will get sucked right in! I am still bummed I didn’t get to meet Jordan while she was in Iceland this August, that just means she will have to come back!
The Rachael Way
After graduating college last year Rachael said goodbye to America and hello to the teaching life in China. I love heading over to her blog for a glimpse into what life in China is like. After reading this post I am thinking more and more I need to head that way!
Amy and the Great Big World
No stranger to a life of adventure, Amy and her boyfriend recently moved to Prague where they are making the most out of life abroad. An expat blog with stories I totally relate to about the transition to life abroad (it isn’t all rainbows and unicorns) I am loving following along with Amy’s adventures.
Welcome to Germerica
Courtney first went to Germany to study abroad but has since returned to Germany for love. I know, another international love story but I love it! The first post I read on Courtney’s blog is one from her series called Mistranslation Monday, I am just going to leave it at they are hilarious and you should head over to her blog right now and read them.
