Welcome back to Season 3 – Episode 24 of Two Fat Expats, where we believe everyone should live a fat expat life. Last week we both flew to Shanghai for a fabulous weekend at our sponsor hotel the Shangri-La Jing An, Shanghai. On Saturday night we had the Big Fat Expat Meet Up, where we hung out in the 1515 Raw Bar with some amazing international women who were blog lovers and sometimes podcast listeners (apparently the wifi isn’t super conducive to podcast downloads in Shanghai) and Kirsty did a blog reading and read the first chapter of her book (coming 2018). On Sunday we both went to the footy, Kirsty to watch her beloved Port Power and me to observe Port Power super fans in action. It was a fantastic few days. Shanghai is a vibrant and busy city that overwhelms the senses and the Shangri-La Jing An is the perfect oasis in the middle of it all. For this week’s podcast we spoke to some of the Shangri-La Jing An staff members who are ‘hotel’ expats, about their expat lives.
