Recommended Expat Blogs: Ghana

In our InterNations Recommended Blog section we let you take the spotlight! Expat life in general is, of course, a perfect breeding ground for great, user-generated reads, and life in Ghana makes no exception. Take your time and browse the great blogs showcased in this article!

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 Ghana:

 Chrissie: Six Degrees North

I guess the coolest thing we’ve experienced came very early after our move to Ghana; we were invited to a farewell party at the mine for one of the senior management who was being enthroned as a chief of community. There are 18 local chiefs and they all came with their entourages dressed in traditional West African robes, with velvet hats and masses of gold jewelry. There were hundreds of people, and loud African music.

Efia: Efiasworld

I don’t think you can ever fully be prepared for what awaits you in Ghana. I am a strong believer that everything happens for a reason and had I changed my decisions I may not have gone through most of the experiences I have been able to blog about over the years and I have met some interesting characters on the way both positive as well as negative. What I would advise returnees is that two things which are of absolute necessity if you are coming back, they are a car and a house.
