At Expat Focus, we like to be on the lookout for resources around the web that could help prospective expats adjust to their new countries. Today, we’re taking a look at Argentina and some of the blogs that might be useful for expats there.The Expat Entrepreneur
Sabine has called many countries home but on arriving in Argentina in 2010 she felt especially at ease and decided to settle in Rosario, at least for a while. She is passionate about helping expats on their individual journeys in their new home country. Within her blog you will also get an insight into entrepreneurial expats from all over the world, which makes for interesting reading.
Pine Tree Paradise
A parenting blog with a difference, this family of five and one four-legged companion divide their time between Buenos Aires and Pinamar, Argentina. The blog is exclusively illustrated by the children, and their drawings adorn every post. Always entertaining and uncompromisingly honest, any expat parent will be giggling and nodding along whilst reading this blog.
Vermont born Emily is a researcher specialising in migration; she came to Buenos Aires via Madrid and Prague in 2006. If you haven’t heard the term ‘existential migrant’ before, her blog is the perfect place to look, she investigates the feelings (and reasons behind) the concept of home to an expat. Her ‘expat predicaments’ will likely strike a chord with many current expats and will be an eye opener to anyone considering a life in Argentina.
Dario takes pictures – good ones! Whether it be the best places to find meat in Buenos Aires or Holy week in Santa, he allows his readers to feel like they are really there. The passing snapshots are just as beautiful as his professional photographs, but the information he collates in his blog is also a guide to all that is going on in and around the city day to day.
Another photography-heavy blog, which is unsurprising considering that Amelia makes her living as a photographer. She also runs a photography tour, which takes visitors to undiscovered parts of the city whilst also learning new photo skills. If you want some wanderlust inducing eye candy, this is the blog for you: you’ll be buying a ticket to Buenos Aires before you know it.
Tango To The Moon
Canadian Angelina made Argentina her home in 2009; her blog is a series of reminiscences of her life from the day she got off the plane. A love of dance, especially the tango, weaves its way through her blog and adds an entertaining individuality that anyone can enjoy. A really interesting read and glimpse into a life less ordinary than most.
