Happy Mid Autumn Festival!

mid autumn

Mid Autumn Festival is celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month in the Chinese lunar calendar so…that is TODAY!

The most common traditions for celebrating the Chinese festival are eating mooncakes and gazing at the moon, because mooncakes and the moon in Chinese culture are symbols of reunion.

So, here I am eating my mooncakes ( and I will definitely check out the moon tonight) and missing my Chinese friends and thinking about when I will see them again!

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.
