EasyExpat seeks to provide all the tools and resources you need to move abroad, but sometimes the best advice is from the people who have been there, done that. Luckily, many expats are happy to share their story and advice. We have featured over 250 expat interviews from our extensive directory of expat blogs. From Europe to South America to Asia, from English to Spanish to French - we've shared your expat stories. The triumphs, the failures, and the joy are all part of a rich heritage of life abroad.
Earlier this year we announced our first BlogExpat's Top Expat Blog Awards and tips for creating a great expat blog. Today we announce this quarter's Top 5 Blog Winners! These blogs have been picked for their ability to translate day-to-day life abroad and their unique expat perspective. Read about their experience, tips, and stories.

As our extensive collection of expat blogs has grown, we have found that every expat has a story. It has been our pleasure to share these stories through our twitter round-ups, articles, and in our series of Expat Interviews.
Last year we celebrated our first year of Expat Interviews with some of the best answers in the series. Some answers were inspiring...
Why did you move abroad?
Jack Scott - From London to Bodrum: "I was a petty bureaucrat for 30 years gently ascending a career ladder to middle management, middle income and a middling suburban terrace; comfortable, secure and passionately dissatisfying. I thought it high time to take a break from my labours, put my feet up and watch the pansies grow."
What do you miss most?
Steve - From Greenwich to Beijing: "I think the anonymity - I can walk round most places in Europe or the Americas and just go about my business, but here I stick out entirely. The better I become at Mandarin the more I realize there are so often people watching and commenting loudly on my every move."
...and some were downright wild.
What custom/ habits do you find most strange about your adopted culture?
Marie - From Colorado to Rabat: "Strangers coming up and kissing my blond children on the mouth. You see, blond children are considered lucky here in Morocco. Moroccans are extremely friendly and love children, but in America we call people who do this pedophiles. By the way, my children do not consider themselves lucky for being blond in Morocco..."
