When I first started blogging one of the first people to befriend me was Very Bored in Catalunya who writes a fantastic blog (and a brutally honest and sometimes hysterically funny one at that!) about her life in Catalonia. I loved reading her posts on life in another country and when it became apparent that I too would become an expat it was her blog I turned to for information on living in Spain.
Over the year or so I have been blogging I’ve found a few blogs by UK expats living abroad, like A note from Lapland, some by expats from other countries living in the UK or abroad, like Vegemite Vix and some, like It’s a small world after all which documents a family’s adventures during a round the world trip. All of which have me both empathising with them over certain predicaments or dreaming about the places they detail in their blogs.
I haven’t got nearly enough expat blogs on my blogroll and I’d love to find more, so I thought what better way to find them than to hold a carnival to give people the opportunity to link to their blogs and hopefully get some new readers too.
The rules are there are no rules, just link up your home page url to the Mr Linky widget below and that’s it. In the future I may well run the carnival as a regular monthly feature and request posts on specific topics (suggestions and opinions on that idea please!) such as education abroad, favourite places to visit etc.
Thanks for linking up and please tell all your expat blogger friends!
Please note to see the entries you have to click on the Mr Linky widget, unfortunately they don’t display automatically but they’re all still there! I will however add all links added to the carnival below as they are added:
