Tourist in your own Town

Tourist in your own town or a stay vacation…call it what you want but this year’s summer vacation we aren’t traveling too far. Everyone asks “Where are you going?” Maybe they expect to hear a really cool place. I guess we could have booked something away…I love our vacations to far away lands and exotic places, interesting cities and really fun places, who wouldn’t? I’ve been spoiled.

I was talking to Chinese friends and told them we were taking a two week summer vacation and they said “two weeks is long enough to come to China!” Oh, I wish…I will ALWAYS want to go back.

Nope sorry. This year our “summer vacation money” is being spent on our outdoor projects and no excess being spent on travel and hotels during peak season because 2016 is gonna be a big year for travel for us! Destination wedding in April, and 30th Wedding Anniversary trip in July ( which I am still working on the itinerary). I’m also wondering how I can squeeze in a cruise or resort vacay in early 2016 too, maybe February. Winter is just too long and too cold.

So…we’re here BUT I’m excited. I have learned to appreciate small things in those big things. Like a good meal, a beautiful sunset, fresh air walking along a clean beach, a quaint little coffee shop, a unique fishing village, an old world town…lots of things so Tourist in your own town? What does Bridgewater offer the visitor? Ok, so maybe not just Bridgewater. But our province. Nova Scotia. It’s beautiful and I really want to enjoy it and appreciate it and do some things, maybe like a tourist. I don’t know but I have a list of wonderful ideas and my handy Nova Scotia Doers and Dreamers guide.

Let’s hit the road Baby!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
