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 Belgium and some of the blogs that might be useful for expats there.

La Petite Rose à Bruxelles
https://lapetiteroseabruxelles.wordpress.com/

Currently wrestling with being allocated the 'expat wife' label, La Petite Rose à Bruxelles is tracing Charlotte's new expat life in the Belgian capital.

Featuring a whole blog subsection on life as an expat, brunch recommendations and snapshots of family visits, the chance to share in journey of this petite rose is going to be an interesting one.

Belgian Waffling
http://www.belgianwaffling.com/

Mourning her loss of regular pots of British tea, a price seemingly worth paying for the right to wear necklaces garlanded with golden croissants, Belgian Waffling is the ongoing tale of an author, her chickens and life in Brussels. Peppered with strong language, this is a no holds barred window into expat life - and full of creatively shared scenarios that are hard to put down.

Pastels and Macarons
http://www.pastelsandmacarons.com/

Relocating across the world from Australia to Belgium with her husband, a 17 month old toddler and a 6 week old baby, Pastels and Macarons is Maria's personal creative hub. Beautifully photographed in confection hues, she shares DIY tips, recipes, home inspiration and travel stories to help make expats' new location feel more like home than just a house.

Simon Says
https://simonlitton.wordpress.com/

Enmeshed in the world of public administration by day, Simon is a British dad travelling the world every chance he can with his family. Sharing global adventures focused on food, slipping in the occasional pun and childhood memory, Simon Says is a lovely medley of adventures.

Belgian Smaak
http://www.belgiansmaak.com/

Exploring the world of Belgian beer and chocolate, Breandán and Elisa are award winning foodies bringing a taste (or 'smaak') of Irish wit to the metaphorical table. Sharing their experiences, favourite flavours and a recipe or two, this is a fascinating blog - but perhaps one to avoid if on a diet...

CheeseWeb
http://cheeseweb.eu/

Possibly the best known bloggers in Belgium, Alison (a freelance journalist and photographer) and Andrew (a corporate escapee) are a Canadian couple who lived in Belgium for over 10 years, trawling every nook and cranny they could find. They are currently 'slow travelling' through Europe with their cats and a caravan sharing their adventures. Keeping the Belgian flag flying and the hearth fires burning, they have a few regular guest contributors with exemplary expat stories of Brussels and beyond.

Why Am I Not Skinny
https://whyiamnotskinny.wordpress.com/

Why Am I Not Skinny is a journal of delicious Belgian foodie destinations, family adventures and meal descriptions that defy the inventors of food-television. Maxine is a South African living in Belgium and loving its foibles whilst sharing her favourite tidbits such as "butter dips, think golden butter crusted bread that has *tasty* written all over them". As she says, meals are made for enjoyment after all!

Life As Unusuals
http://www.lifeasunusuals.com/

Kerri is a blue-haired Brit (well, blue-haired this week) living life Brussels. A self-proclaimed scion of sarcasm, tattoo and rock enthusiast and proud owner of Sir Pork Chop, a hamster with a plastic castle of fun, her blog Life As Unusuals charts the everyday amusements of their life in Belgium away from the usual expat bubble.

We’re always on the lookout for more sites to feature - if you run a blog about living in Belgium, leave us a link in the comments and we’ll take a look!
