InterNations Featured Blog
Recommended Expat Blogs: Beijing
Everybody who has spent time in a different country knows that expat life is not quite like anything else in the world. The confusion of the first few days and weeks, the slow, but steady process of acclimation, the little peculiarities and quirks that might strike you about your new surroundings: almost any situation you encounter can make for a great story. If you are so inclined and want to blog about it, of course!
Our InterNations recommended blog section features talented expat bloggers from around the world. Their offerings to the blogosphere have been selected for their great entries and high quality, whether they may be funny, informative, interesting, deeply personal or a combination of all of the above.
Let’s hear from our featured bloggers in Beijing:
My life in China is more stress free than my life in America was. I don't have to worry about many things such as: a car payment, car insurance, as many bills, job security. I think the plethora of schools and ESL teaching positions takes a huge burden off of the shoulders of foreigners in Beijing teaching. I know many expats aren't teachers so this would be a little different depending on careers.
I didn’t have huge expectations of coming out. I’d never been to China at all before moving here, though I thought it would, quite rightly, be significantly different to Hong Kong. So was I fully prepared? No, of course not. Would I have changed anything? Not at all. If the little bumps and hiccoughs along the way hadn’t happened, it would probably have felt too sanitized for it to be fun.
