France - Five Recommended Expat Blogs

  Posted Friday January 31, 2014 (16:10:00)   (2922 Reads)

 

At Expat Focus, we like to take a look around the internet and see who’s sharing interesting ideas and useful tips for expatriate life all around the world. In our travels, we come across lots of blogs we’d like to recommend, and we’ll be featuring some of them over the coming months. Today we’re focusing on France; here are five of our favourite expats writing from their new French homes.

American Mom In Bordeaux
http://americanmominbordeaux.blogspot.com

As the title suggests, Jennifer writes about life in Bordeaux with her French husband and three daughters. A mixture of personal updates and tips for travelling around Europe, Jennifer provides an open, fun insight into what it’s like being a parent in a new country.

Laurel Zuckerman’s Paris Weblog
http://laurelzuckerman.typepad.fr/laurel_zuckermans_weblog

For those who like to fully immerse themselves in every aspect of a culture, including history, politics, education and ecology, Zuckerman’s Weblog is not to be missed. The site features local cultural events and literary festivals, as well as new book releases and news on Parisian political issues.

Oui In France
http://ouiinfrance.com

With a focus on personal stories and what it feels like to be an expat in France, Diane’s blog will make anyone who’s struggling with the expat experience feel at home. The good, the bad and the downright difficult are all discussed in a fun, sometimes irreverent tone, making Oui In France feel more like a chat with an expat friend than a site filled with information about moving abroad. Definitely one to check out if you’re questioning your move into the expat life.

Eye Prefer Paris
http://ipreferparis.typepad.com

An ex-New Yorker’s quirky guide to France’s capital city, Eye Prefer Paris is the perfect place to find all those little details that can make a new country feel like home. From the best place to find a good coffee and breakfast croissant, to the most colourful candy shops and eclectic cultural events, Richard’s unique take on Paris will soon see you dreaming about waking up there every day.

The Completely Useless Guide to Paris
http://www.useless-paris.blogspot.com

Margie Rynn’s deceivingly useful blog peruses the Parisian streets for cultural gems to share with expats and travellers alike. Notes on local issues such as the right to shop on a Sunday, newly-built métro stations and the secret Christmas salmon tradition combine to create a great read for anyone who’s thinking of moving to the City of Light.

Those are our five recommended expat blogs for today. Do you write about being an expat? Leave a comment and let us know!
