EEEC Gold Prize Winner 2011 - Christopher's Expat Adventure

Drum roll please... The GOLD PRIZE winner of the EEEC 2011 expat blog competition is...

Christopher's Expat Adventure!


The aim of this competition was to raise awareness of the excellent writing present on the expat blogosphere in eastern (and central) Europe. Christopher's Expat Adventure is the perfect example. Simple and clean design coupled with regular posts produced to an extremely high standard. Christopher's Expat Adventure is a must see for anyone thinking of visiting Czech Rep. on holiday, relocating as an expat or for anyone who is simply curious in what Brno, and the country as a whole, has to offer. At EEEC, we like how easy it is to navigate around the blog and with hundreds of posts going back to 2009, is very easy to get lost (in a good way!) amongst the wealth and depth of writing.

If you haven't been over there yet, you must! You won't be disappointed!

Once more, congratulations! and EEEC, along with the many other readers of Christopher's Expat Adventure will be waiting with baited breath to see what the blog has to offer in the remainder of 2011 and 2012!

EEEC Bronze Prize Winner 2011 - Do you speak Polish?

An early leader in the competition and perpetually popular, we are happy to announce that this years EEEC Bronze winning blog is - Do you speak Polish


Here at EEEC, we like Do you speak Polish for its original personalized design and the way that we can feel the 'Brummieness' in Teflsecretagent's writing. The blog is well established and began in late 2009, it's good to see that the blog is only going from strength to strength and has even been featured in Polish national press! Another plus is that most expat blogs tend to focus on one country and it's refreshing that DYSP ventures into teaching and life observations of other countries - we wish the blog writer every success this summer in Ukraine!
