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 Cyprus and some of the blogs that might be useful for expats there.Our Cyprus Dream
Martin shares his thoughts on a country that is an enigma, wrapped in a riddle that takes some getting used to, not only as an expat but a Brit exiled from his favourite TV shows. Sitting by their pool, barbecuing swordfish steaks served with an avocado salad, he shares musings on life in Cyprus.
Live Like a Goddess
Claudia threw off the controlling yoke of type-A life in America, to return her husband to his homeland. Rearing two sons and discovering the secrets of local women, she shares her expat adventures of everyday life in a landscape imbued with Aphrodite’s magic (hint: it involves a hefty dash of Mediterranean healthy living and casting away your razor blades).
Sharing her adventures with the Greek language, the fascinating idiosyncracies of a new culture and the reality of settling into life as an expat, Cyprusing is a beguiling combination of honesty and humour.
A New Life Planned In Cyprus
Moving from Cardiff to Cyprus, from rain to sunshine probably wasn’t such a tough decision, and 10 years on Rob and Mandy are living the dream most Brits spend their weekday afternoons snoozing to. With their own YouTube channel and a liberal dash of mischief, the small village of Pissouri seems to be alive with Rob and Mandy’s joy and laughter.
Kids Have Fun In Cyprus
Perfect for parents new to the island, Kids Have Fun In Cyprus is a fantastic blog resource for overcast days and summer holidays. Full of activities, reviews and places sure to conjure children’s smiles and relieved parents.
A Matter Of Choice
A Matter Of Choice is a treasure trove of family memories where expat Brit Emma shares her life in the East of Cyprus; discovering the turbulent history of her adoptive land, sharing her experiences as an expat making new friends, learning Greek and the reality of starting a new life in a new home.
Frank and Joan
When deciding on a new home to retire to, Frank and Joan were crossing countries swiftly off the list until they settled on the sunny climes of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. 14 years later their blog is a record of their ongoing adventures and an intriguing insight into the political landscape of a small community.
