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 Greece:
It’s weird because I actually feel more at home in Greece than I do in my country of birth! I always maintain that our birth country doesn’t have to be the one we’re most at home in. This is true for me with Greece. One thing I do find, though—being away from my ‘home’ country (the UK) actually makes me appreciate it more: the way things WORK, i.e. there are procedures that are followed. The police are very polite too and call you “Madam”—rest assured that does not happen in Greece!
