Dear Reader, Miss Footloose is very sad! Times are achanging and many of the fabulous writers of the original list I had below have departed the Blogosphere and found adventures elsewhere. However, there are still a few hilarious ones to read.
If you have fun expat stories, please send me a link and I will create a new list.
All expats are familiar with the dramas and upheavals of a move across continents and the subsequent efforts to set up house in a foreign country where you don’t know the language and even the simple task of finding a carton of plain, unflavored yogurt can be struggle. Although I have now managed to figure out what a container of unadulterated yogurt looks like in Moldova where my prince and I have recently parked ourselves, I will not yet
entertain bore you with the other details of my life here.
Instead, I’ve gathered here for your enjoyment a colorful collection of hilarious or humorous stories posted by other expat bloggers. I hereby thank these writers for entertaining me. Hope they’ll entertain you too.

Here they are in random order:
1) Here is Havana is the blog of American travel writer and expat Conner who lives in Cuba with her Cuban husband where they struggle to keep their marriage alive on a mattress from hell. A CUBAN BED TIME STORY. No, it’s not a fairy tale.
2) Canadian Carolyn used to live and work in the Kurdish area of Iraq. Here’s one of her tales. Even scary stuff can be funny if you know how to write: GUNNING FOR IRAQ
American (Canadian?) Australian expat lives in Vietnam with her Vietnamese husband and is the blogger of The Drop Out Diaries. She finds that the English language can be very confusing for her dear husband as you can read in her story TESTICLE FACE.
