24/04/2012Introducing Blogs & Photos in the UK

Introducing Blogs & Photos in the UK Welcome to Expatica's Blogs & Photos section for the UK!

Cool Britannia or not so hot? Expatica encourages you to share your experiences of living in the UK, valuable to other expats as they settle into their new country, and to browse our existing blogs and see what other expats have to say.

We’re interested in content on all sorts of topic for our Blogs & Photos section, from politics, local events, local food recipes and photos to restaurant, film and book reviews. The choice of subject matter is up to you!

'American in Britain' Alan offers invaluable guidance on practical matters as he learns how things work here – and learns from his mistakes – doing his best to explain the 'Mind-boggling British tax system', while Meagan muses on the emotional side of moving home and making a life together with a partner from a different country.

'Singaporean in London' Kelvin shares his explorations of the country's capital including, for example, where to get lunch, as well as a tackling the important question of how much it costs to live in London. Ukranian artist Olya Pryymak likewise leads us round London, but shares what she finds through her daily paintings, taking us on a tour of London in spring and English period interiors at the Geffrye museum, for example.

 


Of course, there's more to the UK than London. Veteran blogger Tom Carroll explains why it's good to be an American outside London, sharing his perspective on life as 'The Transplanted Yankee' in rural England, including exploring the English garden centre, wondering at the pomp of British notaries and more. Meanwhile, Canadian Jennifer describes the state of affairs north of the border in the Scottish capital, offering survival tips to 'immigrants' in Glasgow. Keep an eye out for Expatica's first blogger in Wales, coming soon!

Wherever you're living in the UK, whatever the topic of your contribution, we want to hear from you! Start sending your content today to EditorUK@expatica.com and share it with your fellow expats. Click here to read our guidelines for contributing content to the site.
