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 Hungary and some of the blogs that might be useful for expats there.Traveling Seouls
Betty provides an Asian American perspective on living the expat life in Budapest. A serial expat herself, she shares all her tips on what to see, what to eat, and where to shop. As a parent she blogs tips on education, bilingualism and travelling internationally with young children, and shares just how much living abroad has been a life altering experience for all of the family.
A cross-cultural upbringing gives this French passport holder a unique perspective when it comes to her adopted home. Her blog is a part of her journey of self-discovery, of identity and exploration of the city of Budapest via the medium of pictures. Belonging is a strong theme throughout her posts and she aims to add her voice to the many other expats and individuals living across cultures, even if just to say ‘you are not alone’. An interesting and entertaining look at life from the prospective of a grown-up third culture kid.
Crafting Wine, Life And Home In Hungary
Kevin, a serial expat from America, has called Hegymagas, Hungary his expat home since 2007. Working towards becoming a master vintner, this blog is heavy with all things wine related, educational and amusing anecdotes that come along with using foreign methods in his own vineyard. A self-confessed introvert, he is well aware that he is not the kind of American his Hungarian town were expecting, but his determination to make his passion profitable has endeared him to his new home. He possesses a keen wit and a dry sense of humour that makes reading about his life in the vineyard very entertaining.
Budapest Daily Photo
Singaporian Zannie, and her Hungarian husband Zolt, have been recording their joint adventures together on this blog since 2007. Photograph filled (as you would expect), the blog shows the various sights of the city. You will find much more here than simple tourist shots, and you’ll find a good dose of history in there too. Expansions to the original blog include a great selection of traditional Hungarian recipes as well as your must-see guide to Budapest, both additions that are useful to the traveller and expat alike.
