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 Frankfurt:
My biggest surprise here was the number of people who have no curtains in their apartments. At night you can see right through the apartments. I complained to a few German friends about this and their first reaction was: ‘Why would you look? Just don’t look!’
I think it is hard to prepare for a major change, such as moving to another country. I would not change a thing because I believe everything unfolded the way it was intended. It is important to remember that nothing is forever. So having that perspective helped to shed some light to find the things I love in our new home.
