Expat stories

In a city with a 17% non-national population, Barcelona is filled with expat stories. At Barcelona Expat Life, we help amplify the stories and experiences of expats in an effort to connect an expat community that hosts many different backgrounds. Expats share common struggles, discoveries, surprises and motivations, all within the context of their own unique journeys.

 

If you are interested in sharing your experiences as an expat in Barcelona, feel welcome to contact us.
