As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been nominated for the 2012 Expat Blog Award (you still have time to write a review if you haven’t already done so 🙂 – just click on the logo on the right and scroll down to Aussie in France). Expats Blog currently unites 942 expat blogs in 93 countries with their latest blog posts, blog reviews, expat interviews & contests. Their news team bring daily topical news items from around the globe.
