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 blogs that might be useful for expats there.

Postcard from Gibraltar
www.postcardfromgibraltar.com

A British mum of three documents the life and times of her expat family following her husband's work relocation. Talented painter, crafter and sewer extraordinaire, her blog is a great record of her progress as an artist and shows off the most beautiful parts of Gibraltar. Along with the little postcards at school, her exploratory strolls serve as exercise and with camera in hand she shows off the natural beauty of living on ‘The Rock’. A must read for any families considering expat life here.


Season with love
www.seasonwithlove.co.uk

This Yorkshire native writes about her passions here in her blog, family, food and a healthy lifestyle. Living in Gibraltar and being a family of four has only served to make her more motivated to share her consistent belief that food tastes better when it’s made with love. Laura’s blog provides glimpses into expat life through the food she prepares, cooks and shares, with a delicious recipe for any occasion.


Brit on the Rock
www.britontherock.com

Stunning photography as well as plenty of exploits, advice and reviews about Gibraltar and expat life is what this Brit is dishing up. With easy access to Spain and the rest of mainland Europe, this couple enjoy the benefits of life in a country where Morocco is just a short ferry trip away. Regular visitors mean plenty of ‘playing tourist’ and exploring what the country has to offer, being a resident and blogging since 2011 means that this blog contains more than mere tourist advice and plenty of great insider information for current and future expats.


Rough Seas in the Med
www.roughseasinthemed.wordpress.com

The everyday observations of a British journalist served up with a generous helping of acerbic wit. Blogging since 2007, you’ll find posts on most elements of life in Gibraltar and pick up useful tips such as to make sure you shut your windows properly because monkeys might get in and eat your sweet treats. Book reviews follow a rather extensive foodie list of recipes and a Gibraltan history section from Neanderthal times onwards. Splitting time between the Rock and a Finca in Spain, this expat pulls no punches when talking about anything and everything.


Polly Mixtures
www.pollymixtures.com

Brighton-born Polly is a mum of two and a self confessed tea addict with a penchant for baking. ‘Journeying without a destination’ is a way of life for this family, and that shines through in her informative posts. Her personal experiences are laid bare here, no sugar coating, and whilst she is juggling the ‘little mixtures’ in Gibraltar and beyond, this blog is a definite stop on the route to expat life for families.

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