At Expat Focus, we like to be on the lookout for resources around the web that could help prospective expats adjust to their new countries. Today, we’re taking a look at India and some of the social media accounts you should be following if you’re thinking of moving there.

The White Punjabi Bride
Facebook Page | Twitter | Instagram
Australian Tanya never expected that when she walked down the aisle it would be at a palace in India. But now she’s married to a Punjabi man and they’re living between India and Australia. Tanya’s quite active across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, posting updates from her blog and sharing the vibrant sights, traditions and food that she discovers in her new home. You’ll also find lots of useful content such as ‘how to avoid Delhi belly,’ posts to help you navigate Indian traditions, and more.


Cheese Naan
Facebook Page | Twitter
A French family enjoying all aspects of expat life in Bangalore. Johanne, Nicolas and their young son love to travel, sharing colourful snapshots of their adventures across India. They set up the first French food truck in Bangalore (Le Casse Croute) among other entrepreneurial activities, and share the progress of their business ventures, tips for relocating/settling in and integrating into local workplaces.


Sharell Cook
Twitter
If you’re new to India or simply stuck for inspiration of what to do and see in the country, Sharrell’s Twitter feed will give you a boost. Based in Mumbai, the Australian has lived in India for more than a decade following a ‘crisis’ that propelled her in a new life direction. She writes for an Indian travel website and tweets her latest stories which come complete with gorgeous photography. Sharell also regularly retweets topical blogs and articles from other expats in India.


Aakanksha Sadekar
Twitter
Aakanksha is a firey British expat - a petroleum drilling engineer living in Mumbai. She’s also the founder of the storified.me website which showcases the unheard work of women around the world. Follow her for no-holds-barred commentary on happenings in India, the UK and women’s issues. She also provides insights into startups and entrepreneurship.


Brit in Chennai
Twitter
Self-confessed data nerd Peter Claridge is a British expat who transplanted himself to Chennai. He loves the city so much he wrote a book about it. Unsurprisingly due to his day job, his feed has a clear marketing, social media and analytics flavour. However Peter also tweets local recommendations, like the best pubs for an after-work beer and helpful visa information. Peter keeps his followers entertained by documenting his many encounters with Uber drivers in India.


Janice Henry
Twitter
A South African photographer and yogi who is living in Maharashtra, Janice is all about ‘capturing life as it happens whilst trying not to forget to live it.’ She tweets - and shares beautiful shots - of her family travels, yoga teacher training and the latest updates to her blog. Janice embodies her outlook on life and shares her wisdom with others looking to explore India or relocate abroad.


Yoga Teachers of India
Facebook Group
This is a closed group for yoga teachers that was started to connect teachers in the country from around the world. Members start discussions and ask questions that only fellow yoga teachers could answer. You must be a yoga teacher or certified for teaching yoga to be in the group, which is not intended as a marketing platform or for anyone looking to find actual classes.


Matt Everard
Twitter
Matt’s a technologist, husband and dad to teenage kids who moved his family from Canada to India for two years on a work contract. His tweets are a mix of industry, general interest and personal. Be sure to seek out his post on Medium - ‘So you’re going to be an expat in India?’ for a fun rundown of his experiences, presented as a list of ‘dos and don’ts’ for newbies.


Kevin Abroad
Twitter | Instagram
American Kevin Shane gave up the ‘good life’ working in television marketing in New York to find deeper meaning and purpose overseas. He has been in India for five years and heads up the communications for a design strategy and innovation firm. Kevin’s tweets reflect his keen interest in social development, and he has spent a lot of time working with people in, at times, very challenging settings throughout both India and Africa.


Sessions Abroad
Instagram
Adventures of a young American expat family who are on their first big jaunt overseas working for the Foreign Service in New Delhi. They capture their daily life and travels (also keeping a blog), tick off bucket list locations like the Taj Mahal and document unique experiences. Riding an elephant, anyone? Follow their Instagram account and enjoy discovering India along with them.

We’re always on the lookout for more accounts to feature - if you write about living in India on social media, leave us a link in the comments and we’ll take a look!
