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 Luxembourg and some of the blogs that might be useful for expats there.Expat Mum In Luxembourg
Portuguese mum Rute has been blogging in Luxembourg since her move there in 2012, no mean feat when she arrived with a three year old and a one month old. She writes about everything expat related ‘from one mother to another’ but her bilingual blog contains information relevant to all expats. Her weekend agenda posts give you an insight into the range of activities and days out that are available in the local area and just how suitable they really are for the whole family. You will definitely learn a lot from this blog; for example, did you know you can rent a living Christmas tree in Luxembourg?
Barefoot in Luxembourg
Corie is on a crusade to convince everyone she can that Luxembourg is simply not boring. Having lived there for 10 years she is perfectly placed to show off her country, and she keeps her readers up to date about all the places to see and be seen in. With a series about the creative people of Luxembourg, this blog has a great deal of value for a current or future expat.
This family of four left the UK for a multicultural adventure, delighted by the opportunity to experience life in another language. The blog is a record of all of their steps (however large or small) towards living more positively and embracing new challenges. First impressions have blended into expat worries and love for their new country; this is an exceptionally good read for any expat parent.
A self-professed ‘mom blogger’, follow Martha and her family as they leave Seattle for a job opportunity in Luxembourg. Making the most of their central European location, they travel regularly and enjoy sharing their trips in the cities and countryside that surrounds them. There is also no shying away from the realities of expat family life here; everything is delivered with a self-deprecating wit that any parent can understand.
What’s On For Kids
Created by expat parents, for expat parents, this blog’s purpose is to help out English speakers in Luxembourg by making life that little bit easier and what’s going on in and around the city, more accessible. More than just a list of weekend activities, this blog will tell you where there are freebies on offer, which playgrounds are appropriate for children of various ages and has a range of reviews on classes and activities for little and bigger children.
City Savvy Luxembourg
A one-stop guide to all things Luxembourg, this site is a multi-blog with numerous expat contributors. Their expat essentials cover everything you might need to know to get settled into the country as a foreigner. Their series of ‘Extraordinary Expats’ is particularly interesting and really showcases the range of expats out there, living extraordinarily different lives within the same country.
We’re always on the lookout for more sites to feature – if you run a blog about living in Luxembourg, leave us a link in the comments and we’ll take a look!
