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

Life Beyond Borders
http://www.lifebeyondbordersblog.com/

Globetrotting Rebecca fell in love with Greece and she fell hard. The culture, language, sights and smells of the Hellenic world all captured her heart and she made it her base to travel the world. With an international readership and naturally sunny tone that draws readers in, not to mention a section of her blog dedicated to her experiences of a whole new culture, Life Beyond Borders is a fascinating journal.

Symi Dream
http://www.symidream.com/

British-born James not only writes for a living, but shares his many musings on life both in his adopted Greek home and further afield. His experiences have been so entertaining over the years that he has used his everyday insight as an expat on the island of Symi as catalyst for 3 books as well as honest blog recountings of his neighbourhood. Having traded the bright lights of the rat race for the exhilaration of supermarket trips that can leave him stranded on a storm-lashed island for days, James' blog is a must-read for anyone moving to Symi.

Adriana's Symi
http://adrianas-symi.blogspot.co.uk/

Adriana's Greek diary not only shares a window onto her home, but the peaceful island of Symi (well, peaceful when not besieged by sun-seeking tourist crowds.) Almost treating the beautiful isle as a person in its own right, Adriana shares the joys (and occasional perils) of day to day living in a Grecian sanctuary - including outdoor bathrooms in the 21st Century.

Greeker than Greek
http://greekerthanthegreeks.blogspot.co.uk/

Susan is a Brit who swapped a rain-soaked indoor life, for the sun-dappled Island life with her very own Greek God. 35 years, two children and an adorable granddaughter later, she is sporting a tan and an enormous smile. She shares her experiences and loves through the medium of a blog - a perfect read for people looking to relocate to a small town near Athens.

Brits in Crete
http://britsincrete.blogspot.co.uk

Many are drawn to Crete with its unique mixture of culture, tradition and laid-back charm. All the amenities of modern living are available, and the British especially seem to be under the spell of the largest Greek island. Brits in Crete is a more formally written, collaborative blog bursting with practical advice, news and almost everything any one could need, with a special focus on property.

Paros Paradise Blog
http://parosparadise.blogspot.co.uk/

So many expats begin blogging as an easy communication method (and photo store) for friends and family back home - Michael is no exception, and also shares items that have made him smile. Paros Paradise Blog is a well of inspiration, amusement and a few home truths - including the struggle to find a good barber.

Xpat Athens
http://www.xpatathens.com/

Xpat Athens is a regularly updated resource for expats living not only in Greece's capital but all over the beautiful country. Full of practical advice, events and featuring an entire section on life in Athens, this is a must-read, professionally curated blog. One of the most fascinating corners is their 'Survival Guide' filled with visa advice, incredible festivals and a sprinkling of essential superstition advice.

Travel Greece, Travel Europe
http://www.travelgreecetraveleurope.com

A vivacious journal of globetrotting New Yorker Marissa, Travel Greece, Travel Europe is just that - a collection of everything she loves. Adopting Athens as her home - and finding love with a Greek bloke who doubles as her camera toting blog assistant - Marissa is exploring Europe one city at a time. Interspersed with her beautiful images are the fascinating experiences she has discovered as an expat far from home.

Olive, Feta & Ouzo
http://www.amandasettle.com/

Migrating from the UK to Kuwait and then finding herself in the sunny climes of Rhodes (close to Greece's borders with Turkey) Amanda shares her inspired, balanced musings about life in a new community. With posts ranging from topics such as not having children to delicious local recipes, Olive, Feta & Ouzo is a thought-provoking collection of writing for old and new expats alike.

Ramblings from Rhodes
https://ramblingsfromrhodes.blogspot.co.uk/

Full of beautifully written tales and, well, ramblings that are uploaded as the muse takes the author, Ramblings from Rhodes is an intriguing insight into the bureaucracy, beauty and turquoise waters of a beleaguered island. With an honesty and clarity that can't be beaten, John is simply living Grecian life to the full.

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