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 Bulgaria and some of the blogs that might be useful for expats there.Bulgarian village life
Swapping the rat race for a more sedate village life in Bulgaria, Joanna documents her up and downs in her diary-like posts. From bureaucracy to baking, she blogs about it all; her life on a shoestring is an open book online. Curve balls a plenty have been thrown at this resilient woman and her new community has rallied to help and support her, such is the hospitality of Bulgarians.
A letter from the back of beyond www.aletterfromthebackofbeyond.blogspot.com
This 50-something calls a small village in rural Bulgaria home. A slightly weather obsessed Brit documents his life and love of the country and encourages his readers to look past tourist destinations onto the authentic Bulgaria beyond. Posts are peppered with useful expat insights and delivered with a delicious acerbic wit.
Julie and Joe
This British couple are really living the good life on their smallholding in Bulgaria. Their blog reads as a diary of their achievements and a warts and all account of their daily life on the smallholding they now call home. Hardworking doesn’t even come close to describing this self sufficient pair and their regular groups of working visitors.
Rob and Claire made the move from Britain to Bulgaria in 2010 and still hold out hope of one day being self sufficient in at least wine. Full of wonderfully honest and entertaining stories of generous neighbours, macho builders and a new morning coffee routine, this expat duo are thriving and well on the way to understanding almost everything that’s said to them.
Beezone in Bulgaria
The search for a simpler life, where they would see each other more, is what led British couple Tracey and Paul to Bulgaria, where time can be a little more fluid. Blogging to keep family overseas updated on their progress soon turned into a more personal reminder of how far they have come, a helpful read for anyone considering a move to this beautiful country.
We’re always on the lookout for more sites to feature – if you run a blog about living in Bulgaria, leave us a link in the comments and we’ll take a look!
