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 Israel and some of the sites that might be useful for expats there.
Get On In Israel
A cleanly laid-out site that deals with some of the most common questions expats have about moving abroad, Get On In Israel is a good place to start your expat adventure.With advice about the visa process, dealing with culture shock and how to settle in, the site will help you to decide whether a move to Israel is right for you.
A Belgian expat who currently lives in Tel Aviv and works in event production and concert organisation, Marilyn’s blog is a mixture of personal posts about her life there, features of local events and points of interest, and news about the local area. If you want to see what it’s really like to live in Israel, and especially if you’re into music, design and the arts, Marilyn’s blog is a good place to start your expat adventure.
Inspire To Be Inspired
A personal blog written in the style of a diary, Inspire To Be Inspired is unusual in that it covers a huge range of topics from a very personal point of view. Jordana is an American singer and actress who writes about everything from politics to stage fright to finding joy in the small things in life. Reading Jordana’s blog feels like you’re reading a letter from a friend.
A British expat and mum to a daughter in First Grade, Midlife Singlemum writes about her day-to-day experiences. If you’re thinking about moving abroad with children but are understandably concerned about how they will adjust to the move, this is a great place to go. The blog focuses on raising a child as an expat in Israel, and will be useful to any expat parent.
Liz moved to Israel in 2004 and has been blogging about the experience ever since. This means that her blog has a huge amount of information and useful tips for expats, particularly for families moving to the Middle East. Living in Israel with her husband and three children, Liz writes about her life there and shares pictures as part of the ‘52 Frames’ project, in which bloggers take one picture per week and share it with their readers.
