Why Paguro? 

cute hermit-crab photoPaguro is italian for hermit-crab, a creature widely spread out around the world, who changes shell from time to time and is very vulnerable during the transition, just like all expats.

Paguro is the expat borderless country with fellow citizens found everywhere, a country for which you need no visa!

Expats, within their kaleidoscope of nationalities, languages, customs and religions, share common interests and have common needs which result in a culture all of their own.

We move from one country to another, adjusting to languages, currencies, plugs, voltage systems, dvd formats, as well as customs, mentalities, attitudes and cultures...
each transition generates a different emotion
each move we learn something new
each time, (like a paguro :-), we leave a shell to enter a new one

Save and share your unique understanding of the world on Paguro
Each Paguro member has a personal web-space - my paguro, a shell that will keep growing and never needs to be left behind.
