Guest Comic by tXc - Acculturation Realisation

Northern Italians dislike Southern Italians for what everyone else just considers Italian Stereotypes

Happy December! This week we have a guest comic, written and illustrated by tXc, creator of the fabulous like-minded web comic Expat Gone Foreign.

We did this as a comic exchange, so to see the one that I drew in the EGF style, check out the EGF site or Facebook page!

Daily Jumble

navigating asian indian traffic is like solving a moving jigsaw puzzle

Itchy Feet has a new character!

If you're clever, you've probably noticed that Itchy Feet is usually about Europe. That's because it's where I live and work, and have been for the past four years. I've learned Euro-languages, eaten Euro-food and married a Euro-wife. That's lovely, but did you know there are other places in the world?

My brother Erik does. For the past few years he's lived and worked in India, Thailand, and South Korea, learned Hindi, Thai and Korean at various levels, and traveled Asia up, down, backwards and inside-out. I've made comics about traveling through Asia as an outsider, sure, but he's got the inside scoop, and many hilarious stories to tell.

So, just for you, dear reader, I've asked Erik to put his experiences in comic form and contribute to Itchy Feet! He writes and sketches them out, and I illustrate them in the Itchy Feet style. He's already got a stack of sketches ready to go, and over the next few months I'll be rolling them out like curry tea in a sushi chopstick (is that right, Erik?). So the next time you see this happy fellow:'ll know you're reading an Itchy Feet Asia comic by my brother, Erik Rempen.

polyglot goes not mean multiple wives, that's polygamy or polyamory DUH

Conglobate might be my new favorite word.

Ample Prefix

austrian german honorifics herr professor dr. dr. can get ridiculous

After overwhelming feedback, I changed this comic from Germany to Austria. I guess they're just more formal down there...and more supervillainous.

Shamelessly stolen from a true story.

Surprise Midweek Bonus Strip: The Little Things, Redux

Over the weekend I attended the 2015 Berlin Polyglot Gathering, where among the esteemed participants I met Benny the Irish Polyglot, language learning maestro and self-proclaimed Charming Irish Lad. He mentioned he liked my 2013 strip on an American's perspective on water rights in Europe, and felt the same about good espresso in the USA. 

So, I rewrote it for him.

espresso in the usa made for benny the irish polyglot

My guess is he's talking more about diners off the interstate than those fancy hipster joints

Roundabout O'Clock

Telling time in German can get a bit silly


If you want to practice that wacky German time-telling, try italki. They connect you with trained teachers through Skype, and speaking is the best way to learn fast!
