Web Wednesday #1

“A collection of interesting expat links on the web”

Here at Expat Explorer, we always come across interesting articles about expats from all over the world. We thought it might be a good idea to introduce a regular slot on our blog of some of the best stories from we’ve come across that week.

Wednesdays will never be the same

Tourists and travellers have a lot to learn from expats

An article looking at how business travellers are tapping into expat websites and networks to find out local information on the best neighbourhoods to stay in, visa requirements and even the occasional party crashing. As Meg Nesterov pointed out in an earlier article, travellers on the whole can learn a lot from the expat community on hidden gems around the city.

Is blogging a cure for expat blues?

We feature many great guest bloggers and follow a lot of interesting blogs on our blog roll. Expat bloggers often share great insight in the country they are living in whilst sharing their personal musings on life abroad. Blogs are also great way for expats to keep in touch with family and friends at home. Naomi’s Delhibound and Maryline’s Franco American Dream for example are just some of the blogs we enjoy reading at Expat Explorer.

More tips to beat the blues

Talking about expat blues, the weather has made quite a dramatic turn here, marking the end of summer. With winter looming like an unwanted guest, we came across this very timely post about how to make this period of darkness and gloom more bearable.

5 main reasons for moving abroad

Using the results of the 2010 Expat Economics Report, Shelter Offshore explored some the main reasons for people to relocate and move abroad. Better job prospects, opportunities to expand one’s horizon, more favourable retirement options are just some of the motivations for people to relocate. With air travel becoming more accessible, the possibilities are endless. People often find a whole host of other reasons for wanting to see the world and experience life abroad.
