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 the Cayman Islands and some of the blogs that might be useful for expats there.Cayman Islands Blog
A blog that originally started out for home development updates took an abrupt turn when Mr Fake Geordie, a British lawyer and his family, decided to to try out the expat life for 12 months, and 5 years on, they are still there. You’ll find recommendations aplenty, everything from best breakfasts to beaches and great guest posts from Mrs Fake Geordie. This blog provides a entertaining window into expat family life.
Living in Grand Cayman
This Canadian couple have been living in Grand Cayman since 2006. The blog documents their life from moving with their dog and bird to their adventures on and under the clear sea that surrounds the island. Great photography accompanies each post, including an impressive shark selfie. If you want to know the best beaches, the best place to buy discounted books from and where to go to get the best iguana for lunch, look no further than this blog.
Author and teacher Lorraine’s blog is a celebration of the written word. As a long term expat in Cayman she likes to ‘mix it up’ and enjoys moving around regularly to enjoy all the best that the island has to offer. Book reviews, inspiring interviews with other authors and snippets of her own books make up a large part of the blog, the rest is filled with travels and observations on island life.
Having lived in Cayman since 1978, Gordon Barlow knows what’s what when it comes to the island. His essay type prose covers island history and politics. As the first full time manager of the Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce, he is eminently well placed to provide well rounded and balanced comment. Not just current affairs, but also a look at a family spread across the globe and the expat issues that raise their heads in everyday life.
Whilst Kirstie is a recent repatriate, this Canadian made the most of her two year stint on Grand Cayman. The blog documents expat life from touchdown to developing a case of ‘rock fever’ and buying property to pirate week, together with her husband (and plenty of visitors) she gives a well rounded insight into her expat reality. With a PO box in Hell (literally) her posts will make you laugh and ugly cry in equal measure.
