Truffles, Passports and Playlists

I can’t believe it’s the end of the week already. As another week draws to a close, here at ExpatFocus we’re winding down for the holiday period, but we still have a load of great content for you to read.

Our columnists have been busy: Marla Sink Druzgal writes about losing the extra-large American passport; Meredith discusses New Year's Eve traditions in Germany; and June Finnigan talks truffles, olive oil and the Pope’s visit in her latest reflections on life in Tuscany.Would you like to be a columnist at ExpatFocus?

Not saying you’ll need this next article, of course, but just in case… take a look at this list of hangover cures from around the world.

Speaking of drinking, if you’ve ever dreamed of opening a bar or pub, here’s a list of great places worldwide to do just that.
