4 Ships!

Four ships! That’s right, four cruise ships in the Port of Halifax today. That’s a lot for a small port. And not only ships…PEOPLE!

I love cruising. It is one of my favourite ways to vacation. To be in our home province and in our city when there are 4 cruise ships visiting is exciting to me. I said to my husband if we lived right in the city I would want to work in  that industry somehow. It excites me. Actually tourism is so interesting and I love meeting and talking to people visiting our province and I absolutely love cruising, so the two put together would be a really fun job.

This year is a great year for the number of cruise ships coming to the Port of Halifax. Just look up Cruise Schedule for Port of Halifax and you will see. A lot of days 2 and 3 ships. Some days 4 and actually on October 1st there will be 5 ships. That is so terrific! So many people visiting our beautiful province.

We were in the city today and actually made a point of going to the Port and then went to the Dartmouth side to get a picture of all four ships together. Two Royal Caribbean ships, a Holland America ship, and our favourite a Norwegian Cruise Line ship ( the Dawn).

It’s the only time the shops are open and I like browsing. We had a great day and even grabbed a late lunch at the Seaport market.

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.
