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 Ghana and some of the blogs that might be useful for expats there.My Expat Life In Ghana, Africa
French born Isabelle followed her boyfriend to Ghana in 2014 and started her blog to keep family and friends updated on their progress. What she has created is a no nonsense how to guide for expats, from first steps to honest feelings at the three month mark and finally finding her purpose. If you should ever need a miniature fantasy coffin or want to volunteer abroad, you’ll find out where and how to here. For anyone considering Accra as a base, stop by and check her out.
Six Degrees North
Chris and her family took the plunge and left their native Australia behind in 2012 for a life six degrees north of the equator in West Africa. She has a wealth of honest opinions for expats about the realities of living in developing country. Having shared her experience life in the city and in more rural areas, the blog has a well-rounded feel and is peppered with fabulous colourful pictures of everyday life. Expat life is about challenges, experiences and joys for this adventurous family.
This Ghanaian expat life came about via Paris, the USA and Kajsa’s native Sweden. Paris is where the blog was born, less a year later she moved to Ghana and in with her boyfriend and (future) mother in law. You can see her progress, personally and professionally, from day one and learn some useful tips should you wish to follow in her path. A diary writer from the time she could write, she shares her ‘personal, political and sometimes positive’ opinions on expat life and more.
We’re always on the lookout for more sites to feature – if you run a blog about living in Ghana, leave us a link in the comments and we’ll take a look!
