7 Expat Instagram Accounts to Follow

There's no denying that in our expatriate lifestyles, we're fortunate enough to be able to witness wondrous things, visit magnificent landscapes and broaden our knowledge of all different cultures and practices. 


Of course, a perk of moving abroad means you're able to explore an entirely different world that you're used to... Often leaving us as very well-rounded human beings. 

If you're an expat yourself, or you're considering the big jump to living abroad, here's some of our favourite Instagrammers to help give you that little bit of encouragement in deciding... Get ready to reel with envy at the amazing lives of these fellow expatriate women living in various countries around the world!

Understandably, after returning back to her home in Sweden, she began planning her more permanent move and now shares her adventures in the city!
