18 December, 2015 10:41  EasyExpat EasyExpat

Just before Christmas, and to finish this year, we are publishing for the 6th year the EasyExpat Best-of list for the funniest or most bizarre emails we have received in 2015.

We remind you that EasyExpat is a list of city guides for expatriates, host a public forum for the community and free services such as job listing, classifieds, general articles on expatriation (FAQ), directory of expat websites. Apparently some Internet users did not understand it!


You will understand that the goal is not to mock but just to relax and take it easy during the festive season.

Of course, spelling mistakes were not corrected but names and personal details have been replaced by XXX, or deleted. The text published is the only and full message received.

If you want to pursue this moment of relaxation and humour, please see our previous best-of:
