Strange Shores: Unbunged

I am the host of the next Strange Shores blog carnival, started up by two alien invaders of Sweden, Paddy K and Ladyfi.

Strange Shores is a bloggy festival celebrating the madder side of being a foreigner in a strange land, with or without shores. An cowpat expat is a pile of poo person from one country who has settled in another country. Does this apply to you?

If so, and if you have a funny, interesting or just plain mad story of your experiences in your adopted country, you can send me the link, either in the comments section of this post, or to:, and I will put the link up on the Strange Shores carnival day, which is this coming Sunday.

If you have no clue what I am on about, (I get this a lot), then here are the previous three editions of Strange Shores:

edition 1

edition 2

edition 3

What is in it for you? A dose of madness and mayhem? Likely. Fame, fortune? Possibly not. Although I do get a few hits now and then, usually from people looking for things like “seamonkey fun”, but you never know, you might get read eventually.

If you are not an cowpat expat, well, sorry. At least you don’t smell.

May the flies be with you.

    What a interesting blog you have here. I love it. Came by it through Maryam’s blog. Well I came to the US at 10 years of age from Spain. Left my homeland of Cuba at 5 years of age. So let me move to another country before I can be called an ex-pat. In the mean time I will be enjoying your travails.
