Expat Blogs Award 2018

Being an expat is not exactly the easiest thing in the world to be, especially if you are someone who doesn’t exactly travel all that much. Going to a country that is drastically different from where you live is also a challenge, one that not every traveler can successfully overcome. Fortunately, there are resources available to help you out in this regard, and the blogs on this awards list are among the most valuable that you can ask for.

Above all else, however, the most important things that you can get out of these resources is the information that you can make use of once you are already in the country where you will be an expat. We also held a similar award last year with the Expat Blogs Award 2017. Some of the resources on this list were even at the top of the nominee list.
