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 Gibraltar and some of the bloggers who write about living there.

Cafe Cortado
http://www.cafecortado.net/

A Croatian expat is the voice behind Cafe Cortado, which focuses on a lot of different topics related to travel and expat life in general.

Many expats live in Spain but work in Gibraltar, and Cafe Cortado devotes several posts to this concept, which will prove useful to those who are undecided as to where to actually make their home. There are also features about various things to do in Gibraltar, and reviews of local eateries.

Rough Seas In The Med
https://roughseasinthemed.wordpress.com/

The blog of a British journalist who now lives in Gibraltar, Rough Seas is partly a personal blog, partly a review site and partly an information portal. Drawing attention to some of the things expats may find confusing or difficult when they arrive, such as the relaxed attitude to work during the summer months, Rough Seas will give you an idea of what it’s really like to live in Gibraltar.

Brit On The Rock
http://britontherock.com/

Another British person blogging about life in Gibraltar, Brit On The Rock is a must-read guide. The posts are regular, the pictures are beautiful and the content is useful. Once again, this site strikes a balance between personal posts, reviews and tips for other expats, which makes it a useful site for anyone thinking of moving to The Rock.

Postcard From Gibraltar
http://postcardfromgibraltar.com/

As the name suggests, this blog contains mainly updates on the author’s daily life in Gibraltar, with in-depth posts and lots of pictures to illustrate them. If you’re looking to get an idea of what it feels like to be living in Gibraltar, and you want to see things through the eyes of someone who’s already there, this is the site for you.

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