Hello, we’re finally back after a ‘summer’ break for the Two Fat Expats.

This is the first episode of our fourth season. This season we’re changing it up a bit, bringing in a ‘What’s Hot’ in the Facebook group segment to the party while still including a topic per episode where we examine an issue in a bit more depth from an expat point of view, and of course our favourite things on the web and social media round up. This week, we’re kicking off with friends and how to make and keep them. A skill that every expat needs because new locations = new friends.
