Sharing your Expat Life with your Global Friends


Last week’s blog on how to keep in touch with friends abroad using the latest and greatest technology was a great hit, which you can read all about here, but this post takes a little bit of a different view of the subject. Many expats, especially those who have had multiple postings, have trouble keeping their global network of friends and family up to date with where they are in the world and what they are getting up to.
Expat Explorer had discovered that many expats are using photo sharing website Flickr share their photos, both holiday snaps and more arty pictures, with people they know and rest of the web. It can be updated regularly, or not so regularly for those who are not so snap happy, and a link can be sent out on mass to all those people that you know and love, but may not have time to email regularly.
ExpatGeneva has some lovely pictures of place of residence Geneva, particularly this cute cow below:


 UK in Denmark Flickr user uploads pictures of expat life as an ambassador in Denmark, including pictures from Jim Paice’s, MP, Minister of State for Agriculture and Food visit to Denmark in August which chronicles important looking people in wellies:



And finally, Flickr user Auswandern Malaysia’s wonderful pictures of expat life in Kuala Lumpur:

  1. I use Flickr and love it. I host all my blog photos there, otherwise I'd go way over my hosting limits.
