Everyone has at least one story to tell. Some are short, others much longer. Expats could tell many. Besides well-researched and expansive content on the local online expat guides, blogs are being introduced to provide a channel for those who wish to contribute.
A compendium of funny, awkward, challenging or riveting and entertaining short tales can be built over time. Readers can come to the conclusion they are not alone in their experiences in a foreign society.
It is thought that the blogs will reflect local circumstances and occurrences, whatever they may be. A global blog will be introduced on these pages for those who wish to publish a wider selection of themes.
Watch this space :).

Expat location guides in each city post the mayor's welcome to expats. Effects are threefold. International residents are acknowledged for their decision to relocate. It sends a motivational message to municipal employees to serve them well. A cosmopolitan message is also spread among companies and locals.
Staying in touch and getting together with others living in a similar situation can be important. Expat groups in social media are highly valuable sources for connecting. Socialising in the new location can include expat events, international clubs and popular spots to meet other international residents. All are available on the eGuides.
